A Note about the Elementary School Transition

Dear Paine Elementary Parents,

Happy New Year! We trust that everyone had a restful break and enjoyed some quality time with your children. As we move into the second half of the school year, we want to share some transition news from Dr. Neill. Over the next several months, the three elementary principals will be rotating positions within the buildings for six week increments. This will allow all faculty, staff, parents and students to become more familiar with the members of our administrative team as we move closer toward the opening of our new schools. This schedule will also enable the principals to view each of our teachers working with students as we reacquaint ourselves with a K-5 environment.

Below is the the “Elementary Principal Transition Plan” :

Paine K-2 Office

Dr. Evans (Jan.11-Feb 19)

Dr. Jeter (Feb. 22-Mar. 25)

Paine 3-5 Office

Mrs. Schmitt (Jan. 11-Feb. 19)

Dr. Evans (Feb. 22-Mar. 25)

Floating Principal (Working between both schools)

Dr. Jeter (Jan. 11-Feb. 19)

Mrs. Schmitt (Feb. 22-Mar. 25)

Our first priority is to ensure that our students continue to receive excellent services and instruction as they do now. We are fortunate in Trussville City Schools that our faculty and staff work so well with our students. We thank you for trusting us with your children’s safety and education. Please feel free to contact us should you have any questions.
