WELCOME!

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at Percy Priest Elementary School is working hard to make this year amazing! Our organization of parents, teachers and administration strives for each child and family to feel welcome in our Tiger community.

The PTO’s mission and goal is to support our incredible teachers, staff and students in an environment that will place students on a path to success in elementary school and beyond. The PTO raises vital funds through the hard work of parent volunteers to help fund supplemental supplies and support for our art, music, physical education, spanish and technology programs. In addition, the PTO funds interventionists and enrichment teachers, support staff for our teachers, and professional development.

Our theme this school year is WE BELIEVE IN PERCY PRIEST. Our hope is that each student will develop a lifelong love of learning and will believe that they can do anything they set their mind to achieving. We believe that our school is the best elementary school, full of teachers and staff who will bring out the full potential in our children. We believe that our students and families compile a unique community that boosts one another up not just at school, but in other after school activities. We believe in our Tigers and look forward to working with you on our educational partnership to continue to make Percy Priest Elementary a stellar school.

There are many opportunities to volunteer throughout the year; you can participate as little or as much as you would like. Every bit helps! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to the PTO board or Committee Chairs if you are interested in volunteering. We would love for you to get involved!

Please take time to visit the PTO’s website, https://www.percypriest.org, for news, updates and information about your child’s classroom, school wide events and annual fundraisers. Please register online to receive the weekly E-blast with grade level specific information for your student.

Welcome (if you are new) or welcome back to the wonderful Percy Priest Tiger community! Please take the time to carefully read all the information in this first day folder. There are several forms that need to be returned as quickly as possible.

We look forward to a terrific year together!
