A Message from Your Principal

Posted on 11/20/2015 under Schoolwide

Dear PPE families,


It has been a very busy week at Percy Priest.  We want to thank everyone who volunteered by working at the Book Fair, attended the PTO meeting, and assisted with Grandparents Day lunches.  These events would not be possible without your continued support of PPE.


A big thank you for supporting the Second Harvest Food Drive and Warm Coats for Warm Hearts.  PPE collected over 3000 food items and several coats for our neighbors in the middle Tennessee area.


Every year, Percy Priest students and families have opportunities to help those less fortunate during the holiday season.  This year, students in grades K-3 will be collecting gift cards for the Last Minute Toy Store.   Gift cards to Sonic, Target, Wal-Mart and Old Navy have been suggested.  You may drop the cards off at the PPE office or send them to your child’s teacher by December 11th.

The fourth grade students will participate in a grade level project by providing holiday cheer to kindergarten students at Tusculum ES. 


The items in the PPE lost and found would like to be returned to their owners.  However, items not claimed by next Tuesday will be donated to the MNPS HERO program which provides clothing to homeless students attending Metro Schools.  There are several items with the PPE logo in the lost and found, but do not have names written in them.  Please stop by and take a look at the collection.


Happy Thanksgiving to our wonderful PPE families!


All the best,


Mrs. Melinda Williams

Mr. Mark Mason

Dr. Kaye Rackard
