A Message From Your Principal


Dear PPE families,

Thank you for making our food drive a huge success! PPE families donated 5,152 canned goods for the hungry in our community. That is 1,308 more items than last year!

The classrooms who will earn a non-SSA day for collecting the most canned goods are:

  • Kindergarten: Ms. Benson
  • 1st grade: Ms. Orth
  • 2nd grade: Ms. Strawn
  • 3rd grade: Ms. Dwight
  • 4th grade: Mrs. Cary

Students may wear non-SSA on Friday, October 20th.  The homeroom who brought in the most canned goods is Ms. Orth’s first grade class.  They will be treated with a pizza party after fall break. We want to thank Ms. Strawn and Mrs. Morrel for facilitating this year’s food drive.

Thank you for helping us make an impact by fighting hunger and feeding hope! 

We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable fall break.  Please encourage your PPE tigers to read at least 20 minutes daily and practice math facts to increase their math fluency.

Your partners in education,

Mrs. Melinda Williams
Mr. Mark Mason
