Dear PPE families, 

Hello and welcome, on behalf of the PTO, to the 2021/2022 academic year at Percy Priest Elementary! We look forward to another fantastic year of supporting our school.  As PTO president, I’d like to personally invite you to jump in and get involved. 

The volunteer efforts of our parents and caregivers are vital to our school, providing support both in terms of dollars and time, as well as tools and resources (additional staff, software, and supplies among other things).  Your work as a volunteer would directly support the work of our teachers and the education of our children, all while allowing you to get to know other PPE families.  Any amount of time that you can give to the PTO is an investment in your child and their peers.  Please read more below about how to jump in.  I look forward to working alongside you this year as we support our wonderful school.

Yours in service, 

Dr. Nahed A Zehr, Ph.D

PTO President, 2021-2022
