A Message from Mrs. Berry

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year at Pacolet Elementary School where we are “Wild About Learning!” It is truly an honor to serve the Pacolet students, families and community once again. It is very evident that our Panther parents and community have a strong connection to our school and amazing involvement with their children’s education. Please know that we sincerely appreciate you and are humbled by your continued support towards the education of our students.

I truly believe that a strong partnership between parents and staff leads to academic success for all children. Therefore, I invite you to visit our school, “your” school, and actively participate in your child’s education.  This participation may come in a variety of forms including joining the PTO, working as a volunteer at the school, checking your child’s homework and agenda on a daily basis, attending school-wide events and communicating questions or concerns with us.

Pacolet Elementary School continues the commitment to ensuring a safe and nurturing learning environment for all children. Our passion is educating children and everything we do at Pacolet Elementary is based on ensuring that your child receives a quality education. We are All In For Every Child, Everyday, Whatever It Takes!

With Panther Pride,

Allison Berry, Principal
