Dear Parents, Students and Community,

On behalf of the entire staff, I would like to extend the warmest of welcomes to South Pemiscot Elementary School. South Pemiscot celebrates a tradition of excellence in education by setting high expectations for academic, social, and emotional growth. Our dedicated staff and our supportive community jointly facilitates the development of our students as eager, life-long learners and as compassionate, responsible human beings. Our Mission is to offer a well-rounded educational program in all academic subjects, health and physical education, fine arts, and practical arts so that the youth of our nation can assume their responsibility in our community and the world. We are committed to continual improvement through collaboration and innovation as we propel our learners to lives of achievement, meaning, and fulfillment.

The South Pemiscot family consists of parents, staff, and community members who are committed to ensuring that our students learn at the highest level. The purpose of the South Pemiscot Elementary School staff is to collaboratively inspire and empower all students academically, socially, and emotionally. We want to guide them as they become active, socially responsible leaders and contributors with the knowledge, skills, and character to be successful. We will achieve our mission by setting high expectations, emphasizing learning and growth, actively and continually improving, and utilizing research-based best practices. Additionally, we strive to teach our students life-long skills including empathy, problem-solving strategies and skills for learning. We want to create a culture of caring, respect, and collaboration in which all students thrive.

I look forward to working with each of you to provide the best possible education for our students. As partners in education, together, we can make our world a better place for all children.

Again, welcome to South Pemiscot!
