Welcome to Potter Street Elementary School! It’s time to start another super exciting, rewarding, and challenging school year. We welcome summer and hate to see it end, but the only way you can move on to the next grade or retire is return to school! The beginning of a new school year brings many things to PSE - new staff members, new programs, new teaching strategies, new students, and of course, new parents. A new school year is as exciting as a holiday or a vacation. I am confident; the 2016-2017 school year will be no different from previous, GREAT!
Our goal is to always exceed or meet standards on all assessments. We have high expectations for our students, and the learning environment at PSE will give all students an opportunity to be successful. We are committed to providing a safe and academically challenging learning environment that will empower the students at PSE to become creative in their thinking and problem-solving. This is accomplished by using programs that are proven successful and implementing new researched-based programs. Employing technology and standard-based learning increases excitement in learning at PSE. Our programs also encourage exploration and increase problem-solving skills. The application of these and other learning strategies and techniques in the classrooms have changed the dynamics for educating the students.
We will continue to strive for academic excellence, improve parent engagement, and improve the learning environment. We will apply the best practices in a fun-filled learning environment. Our faculty, staff and administration are a dedicated group of individuals focused on educating this diverse group of students at PSE. We believe that communication among everyone - teachers, parents and students- is critical for student success. We expect the best from our students and encourage parents to share the same vision and expectations. We have a fantastic Parent Resource Center where our parents and families can work with our staff in a conducive learning environment.
Our parents, community stakeholders, business partners and friends are encouraged to visit our great campus. Our school is staffed by one of the best group of custodians, nutrition staff, clerical staff, paraprofessionals, teachers and counselor. We’ve closed out the 2015-2016 school year and are super excited about beginning the 2016-2017!
