A Message from your Principal!

Posted on 1/11/2018 under Schoolwide

Greetings PPE Families,

Congratulations to PPE’s 2018 Teacher of the Year, Ms. Murray Benson. Ms. Benson will represent Percy Priest ES later this spring at the MNPS TOY Banquet held on the campus of Lipscomb University. Congrats, Ms. Benson!

I would like to share with you some wonderful news regarding Ms. Jennifer Orth, first grade teacher. Ms. Orth received a liver transplant on Tuesday morning and it was successful. Please keep her in your thoughts as she continues to recover at the hospital, and eventually at her home.

Every three years the PPE PTO Policy/Planning Committee and the PTO Executive Board are charged with writing a strategic plan for the Percy Priest PTO. By gathering feedback from parents and teachers, the plan will provide a pathway to establish priorities for our funding and our resources. On Wednesday, January 17th, you will receive an electronic survey and we hope you will take a few minutes to complete it as your input is needed and valued. A Town Hall meeting will be held for our stakeholders in February or March to discuss the results and next steps.

As a reminder, schools will be closed on Monday, January 15th , as we celebrate the life and accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Stay safe and warm,

Mrs. Melinda Williams
