Principal's Message

Welcome to Payson Elementary School, the home of the Lil’ Longhorns.

Our campus hosts our youngest learners, kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd graders. Students receive a comprehensive education, including music and physical education, to begin their journey as lifelong learners. Our teachers have been trained in use of the “Daily 5” strategies to support literacy instruction and enable them to provide small group instruction. Every learner receives the appropriate amount of support they need to be successful.

At Payson Elementary, we like to recognize growth of students through our quarterly awards' assemblies as well as recognition for benchmark growth. Our teachers are trained in the Capturing Kids' Hearts program to maximize the learning of each child.

We are proud to be a “Kind Campus,” which is a program facilitated by the Ben’s Bells organization. We encourage students and staff to perform random acts of kindness, and recognize these acts on a regular basis.
