News from your Principal

Dear Percy Priest families,

I want to thank you for supporting our Food 2 Families food drive this week.  Your generosity will help many families in Nashville and surrounding counties.

PPE donated over 4,000 food items during last year’s food drive.  With your donations, we hope to surpass that number this year.

Today is the last day to bring your items to PPE.  Thanks again for your kindness.

Next Friday, October 3rd, is Walk to School Day.  Please look for details in today’s e-blast.  All students are encouraged to wear this year’s field trip t-shirt next Friday.

MNPS fall break is October 6-13, 2014 and the PPE main office will be closed during this time.  Students will return to school on Tuesday, October 14th.

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the death of PPE parent The’ma Moon, mother of Keith (4th grade) and Kelsey (3rd grade) Petway.

Visitation for Ms. Moon will be held on Sunday, September 28, 2014, from 3-4 p.m. with a Celebration of Life service to follow at Seay-Hubbard United Methodist Church,

1116 First Avenue South, Nashville, TN 37211.  Please keep the Moon-Petway families in your thoughts and prayers.

Your partner in education,

Melinda Williams

We’ll meet at the head of the Bike Trail at the single stop sign on Robert E. Lee Drive and Otter Creek Road and start walking at   7: 30 A.M.

PLEASE DO NOT PARK between Robert E. Lee Court and Robert E. LEE DRIVE.

Please mark your calendars for the upcoming Tigers Around Town Art Shows (Click on this link to download the PDF Schedule for the year). These shows allow friends and family in the community to see the outstanding work and amazing learning that takes place in the Percy Priest art classroom. Every child in the grade level will have a piece of artwork displayed at his or her grade level’s show. The dates included show all of the opening receptions, locations and featured grade levels. I hope you will come out to show support for the visual arts program as well as the community businesses that support our school. Our first show will open next week (Wednesday, Oct. 1) and feature the 1st grade artists at the Green Hill's Regal Cinema 16. Please plan to join us for popcorn and lemonade that night from 4:00-5:30 donated by the theater! Thank you for your time and I look forward to seeing you at these events showcasing our outstanding student artists. Please click the link and print off a copy of the year long art show schedule so you will not miss any of the fun!!
