Principal's Message

It is unbelievable that we have almost completed our first semester of school. We only have two weeks until the winter break begins. The holiday season is a great time to reflect on our blessings and think of ways to impact and connect with others. I am grateful for an amazing school where students can come to learn and grow daily. I am also grateful for the gift of a wonderful staff and teachers who give many countless hours of their day to provide students with a quality instructional experience. I am very appreciative of our extremely supportive parents and community who support and partner with Partee Elementary.

This weather has been very strange. In the morning it's cold and we are wearing our heavy coats and hats but in the afternoon we are rolling up our sleeves because it's much warmer. Even though our weather can be fickle, please make sure that your child/children are dressed appropriately for the weather. Jackets, hats, gloves, scarves, etc. are needed when the temperature drops really low. Make sure your child's/children's names are inside of their personal items so they don't get lost. Contact the Parent Center if you need support with any of these items.

Thank you for your continued support!

Generals Salute,

Mrs. Clowers
