Principal's Message

Welcome to Percy Priest Elementary School.  Our mission is to provide the foundation students need to fulfill their highest academic potential and become lifelong learners by offering rigorous, research-based instructional programs in a safe and nurturing environment.  We are proud of our long-standing history of high student achievement for children in grades K-4.

At Percy Priest, we believe our success lies in our people – the teachers who teach, the staff that assists teachers and students, the parents who support their children’s education, and, most importantly, the students.  We all work together to put children and their academic, social, physical and emotional needs first.

Our rigorous curriculum is implemented daily by talented, creative teachers.  Our parents and PTO strive to ensure we have what is needed to best educate and serve all students.  We have a capable support staff that provides classrooms with all they require and more.

It is a brand-new year at Percy Priest.  Start it off right by building a strong relationship with your child’s teacher.  Here’s how:

  • Introduce yourself.  Make a point of introducing yourself to your child’s teacher during the first few days of school.
  • Volunteer.  Have a few spare hours?  Jump in at PPE!  Whether it’s reading aloud during story time or volunteering in the Tiger Café’, the extra help is sure to be appreciated.
  • Stay informed.  Read every note, handout, or newsletter that comes your way.  If something does not make sense, please inquire about it.

Every day of every school year, the Percy Priest family is united in our focus on children and their success.

Your partner in education,

Melinda Williams
