Principal's Message

Welcome to Payson Elementary School - Home of the Lil’ Longhorns

It is with great pride that I welcome you to the upcoming 2020-21 school year! As the Principal starting my 2nd year at PES with over 25 years in education, I am looking forward to meeting each and every new family this year as well as re-connecting with our current families.

Though this year will have some challenges due to Covid-19, our staff members are committed to providing effective instruction through virtual and distant learning, as we individualize learning opportunities for all students. Starting Monday, August 3rd, teachers will begin contacting their students to explain the new learning procedures that will be initially implemented. The staff at PES looks forward to the day that we can see each other face to face and can hardly wait to welcome our Lil’ Longhorn back to school.

With our families, we commit to making the 2020-2021 school year one that inspires learning and creates growth opportunities for all students. It is our belief that EVERYONE is responsible for school-wide success and each takes Personal Responsibility In Daily Excellence (PRIDE) as a Payson Elementary School family. As we link arms together this year, we will continue to see greatness in our students. We invite you to join us on this journey.

PES has Longhorn PRIDE!
Personal Responsibility In Daily Excellence!
