Sam Kantrowitz, Principal

Sam Kantrowitz            PVES Mascot Spike       


HELLO....My name is Sam Kantrowitz, a.k.a. “Mr. K.” and it’s exciting to be the Principal of Pine Valley Elementary.  I have been in education for over 15 years. I began teaching in Florida, and then moved to Wilmington where I have taught at Williston Middle School, I was an Assistant Principal at Murrayville Elementary, an Assistant Principal at Myrtle Grove Middle and most recently Principal of College Road Early Childhood Center.  I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pa. and “yes” I am a very big Steelers fan and Pirates fan.  I have 3 boys…ages 12, 10, and 3 (who also has the honor of being the first baby born in Wilmington, January 1, 2014) and a baby girl who just turned 1. 

    Pine Valley is very proud of all of their Students and Teachers and has enjoyed many successes over the years.  We will continue to grow and have tremendous academic gains.  I am so fortunate to be a part of such an incredible group of teachers, students, and families that make up this wonderful school and I look forward to getting to know all of our families that are a part of this amazing community. 

   It is going to be an exciting year with lots of incredible things to learn, creative projects, and new friends to be made.  We are fortunate to have your child(ren) here and cannot wait to see the students showing off all their talents.  As always we encourage you to become an active member of our school community.  Join the PTA, volunteer in the classroom, and most importantly take an active role in your child’s learning. 

   If you have questions about anything, please do not hesitate to contact me at anytime… stop by my office, my door is always open.  Get to know the school as well as your child’s teacher.  We are looking forward to an awesome year and we know we are going to soar to new heights.  HAVE A SUPER YEAR AT PINE VALLEY!!!!!
