Big picture
Mrs. Hamilton was selected and recognized by Compton Orthodontics for her work this year through the pandemic. Teachers were nominated in February for the work they had been doing with our school and for our students. All of our teachers at Potter Gray have done an excellent job navigating, leading, and growing our students this school year. We are all proud of Mrs. Hamilton and know that she's deserving of this recognition!

Class Picture Day

We will be taking class pictures on the morning of May 11th. Mrs. Leigh Ann Littlefield will be taking the group pictures for us so that we can remember this year and all the hard work and successes we have had together.

Parent Input Form SY 2021-2022

To help our staff and the administration prepare for the next school year we allow for parents to give input on how their child's experience has been this past year. If you have multiple children and would like to fill out the form we ask that you fill out one per child. Please understand we must consider many different factors in order to create balanced classes for the next grade, and we cannot consider requests for particular teachers (other than to consider sibling history or multiple siblings when possible). This form will be live until May 14th.
