A Message from Your Principal

Posted on 8/28/2015 under 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, K, Schoolwide
Dear Parents;
To stay on track in school, students need to be present every day. Missing 18 or more days of school in a year puts a child's high school graduation at risk. 
This month's Report to Parents "Make Every Day Count: Boost School Attendance," will help families ensure their kids don't miss school and lose
precious instructional time.  Please click for ENGLISH and SPANISH versions of this report.
  • Monday, August 31 – Picture Day…..SSA required
  • Friday, September 4 – PPE Tigers are going to college!  Wear your college colors to PPE!
  • Monday, September 7 – Labor Day/No School
  • Tuesday, September 8 – Teacher in-service/No School
  • Wednesday, September 9 – Progress Reports issued


Thank you for a wonderful Invest in Your Child campaign!  We would not be a TN Reward School without your support!
Your partner in education,
Mrs. Melinda Williams
