A Message from Mrs. Berry

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year at Pacolet Elementary School. It is truly an honor to serve the Pacolet students, families and community. Pacolet Elementary School has a commitment to provide a safe, nurturing, and 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.

Thank you for taking the time to check out our school website. This website will give you a glimpse of who we are and what we’re about.  The real picture, however, comes from visiting our school, feeling the warm, positive atmosphere, and meeting our caring, committed staff.

I truly believe strong partnerships between parents and staff lead to academic success for all children. Therefore, I invite you to visit our school, your school, and to 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 to the teachers and me.

Our theme for the year is “Lights, Camera, Action! Stars Start Here!” so we will continue to help our students reach their individual potentials by developing their intellectual abilities, emotional maturity, unique talents, love of learning and responsibility for their own learning.

 It is going to be an amazing year of learning for every student at Pacolet Elementary.  Thank you for your ongoing support. We hope you will visit often!


Allison Berry, Principal
