A note from Mrs. Poole

We are so excited to begin this 2017-18 school year! I hope each family had a wonderful summer filled with great times and wonderful memories.

I am beginning my third year as principal of New Providence Elementary School. I have been a part of the NPE family for ten years. We opened our doors in August 2008. I am very proud to be a part of such a loving faculty and staff! I am also blessed to have wonderful students and families as a part of our family.

We have a lot great events planned for the year. We could not do our work without the support of our wonderful NPE PTA. They work tirelessly for our students and teachers. I encourage each of you to become a member of our PTA. If your schedule allows, we want each of you to get involved! We always need volunteers for PTA events. You can contact our PTA at

To our NPES families, we welcome you and are excited you've chosen to become a member of the New Providence family. Please become an active member of our school community by reading the NPES Student Handbook, reading/checking emails, and following NPES on Facebook and Twitter.

As principal, my role is to provide your child a safe and positive learning environment. If I can ever be of any help, please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your support of New Providence Elementary School!
