Dear PPE Families,
As the 2015-16 school year comes to a close, I want to thank you for your words of encouragement, support and understanding.
This year was a challenge for me personally as I worked to keep a balance between my priorities as the Executive Principal of Percy Priest and the Network Lead Principal of five MNPS elementary schools while caring for my mother during her illnesses and accidents. I truly appreciate the many acts of kindness shown to me this year.
There will be a few changes for next school year initiated by a slight decrease in projected enrollment. Heather Taylor (K) will leave MNPS for Goodpasture Christian School.
Lovie Lester will move from 2nd grade to teach Kindergarten, Betsy Tune (2nd) will teach 3rd grade, and Erin Parker will relocate from 4th grade to 2nd grade.
Sandy Stringfellow who has taught technology part-time for the past three years will not return to PPE due to enrollment and budget cuts. Dr. Kaye Rackard, part-time AP, will transfer to Cockrill ES because I will not be a Network Lead Principal for 2016-17. MNPS chose to eliminate those positions for next year.
If you know of any family in the PPE zone that has an incoming kindergarten student who has not been registered, please encourage them to visit the Enrollment Center at Hillsboro High School.
Please check our PPE website for supply lists, news, and updates throughout the summer.
In closing, I would like to wish everyone a safe and fun-filled summer. Please help you child avoid the summer slide by reading daily.
All the best,
