    Welcome to Petal Elementary School!!!

    I am super excited about another wonderful school year!  The opportunity to serve the students, parents and community of Petal is a dream come true!  As a graduate of the Petal School District, I understand the high expectations and quality of the Petal schools.  

    Our vision at PES is to provide a learning environment where students develop strong comprehension skills which allow students to produce literature and informational projects in ELA. In math, students will build on foundational number skills to solve mathematical operations. Science and Social Studies will be taught embedded in our ELA and math curriculum. Our school plans are focused on safety of all students, social emotional needs and curriculum. Our office is always available to answer any questions you may concerning Petal Elementary.
