School Board Debate


Dear Hillsboro Cluster Families,

JT Moore Middle School is proud to host a formal policy debate between Gini Pupo-Walker and Adam Barese as they both seek the position of Metro Nashville Public Schools Board Member for District 8, the Hillsboro Cluster. The debate will take place on Thursday, July 19 th, at 6 p.m. in the JT Moore auditorium. One of these candidates will replace Mary Pierce as our school board member, and we need you to take an active role in this political process.

At this time, we are seeking questions from our community members that you would like to see asked at the debate of each of the candidates. My JT Moore Middle School leadership team will choose 10-15 of the questions from the ones submitted by you that will be posed to the candidates during the debate. Unlike in previous school board elections, the candidates will not receive the questions ahead of the debate in order to provide a more authentic experience from which you, the voters, can make an informed choice. This is a very important election and I hope that you will email your questions for the candidates to me at gary.hughes@mnps.org.

I also hope that you will join us for this important debate leading up to the election on August 2 nd ! See you at JT Moore on Thursday, July 19 th ! Doors open at 5:15 and the debate will start promptly at 6 p.m. Elections have consequences. Be involved. Our schools and school district need you to be involved. If you have any questions, please give me a call at school at 615-298-8095 or on my cell phone at 615-772-5354.

Happy Friday!

A Message From Your Principal!


Dear Parents,

And  just like that,  another school year is in the books! Thank you so very much for supporting the vision and mission of Percy Priest ES this year.  Without your support, we would not be able to achieve the many accomplishments our students experienced the past ten months.

This month's Report to Parents, "Exercise Kids' Minds During Summer" offers families fun, brain-friendly activities to keep  children engaged over the summer. We hope your family will  participate in the NPL and MNPS Summer Reading Challenge during the next two months.

Additional information can be found on percypriest.org and mnps.org.

Parents of 4th grade students: It was a pleasure having your children at Percy Priest.  For many of you, your child has been a PPE tiger for the past five years.  Some of you joined our family this year.  Whether you have been a PPE parent for one year or five years, we hope you have been pleased with their social, emotional and academic growth and progress.  They have been a joy to work with. 

Congratulations to the PPE Class of 2018!   Remember………once a tiger always a tiger!

Happy Summer!  See you in August!

Mrs. Melinda Williams, Principal
Mr. Mark Mason, Assistant Principal
