A Message from Your Principal

Posted on 8/1/2015 under 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, K, Schoolwide

Dear  PPE Families,


In less than one week, your precious children will return to Percy Priest ES for the 2015-16 school year.  Our faculty and staff have been preparing and planning for what should be a wonderful academic experience.


A few weeks ago, I was appointed as a Network Lead Principal in MNPS.  While I will remain the Executive Principal at Percy Priest ES, I will also be working with five additional schools.  Because of this, we have added an Assistant Principal  at PPE this year.  Please join me in welcoming

Dr. Kaye Rackard to the PPE family.  Dr. Rackard, who officially retired in May as the AP at Harpeth Valley ES, will be with us on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. 


Please look carefully at the upcoming events listed below.  I look forward to seeing you and your little “Tigers” next week!


Your partner in education,


Melinda Williams
