Our School

Learning Takes Us Places at PES!

Message from the Principal

Parents/Guardians of Pontchartrain Elementary,


It is with a heart full of Pontchartrain Pride that I warmly welcome each of you and your children to our Eagle’s Nest and to the 2022-2023 School Year. As a School Family, we are celebrating the learning adventures that our students will embark upon this school year as they discover all the ways “Learning Takes Us Places at PES.”  Our Faculty and Staff are excited and grateful for the opportunity to partner with each of you as stakeholders of our learning community in each child’s learning experience this School Year. At Pontchartrain, we will collectively strive to prepare students to be confident critical thinkers, resourceful problem solvers, persevering innovators and productive citizens who are joyfully empowered for a pursuit of lifelong learning.
Pontchartrain Elementary has a long-standing tradition of academic excellence as a direct result of the active support and partnership of each child’s family. As a School Family, we look forward to engaging together with each of you in the responsibility of helping ensure every child reaches their fullest potential.  At Pontchartrain, we are committed to fostering a safe and engaging learning environment that embraces the development of the whole child as an individual learner. Pontchartrain Elementary stakeholders share the belief that we teach a child’s brain to learn through high quality learning experiences and that we reach a child’s heart through authentic and empowering relationships: “Minds and Hearts – Together We Grow.”
I look forward to discovering all the places learning will take our children this School Year at PES! On behalf of our Faculty and Staff, thank you for partnering with us to daily inspire and empower our students both in minds and in hearts to lead, to learn, and to ultimately succeed!                         
                                

PES Eagles Always Fly High
