A Message from the Principal
Welcome to Painted Stone Elementary, the home of Panther Pride. Our vision at Painted Stone is Academic Excellence - Child by Child. That vision is a belief and driving force for our school. We know we must meet individual children where they are and build on that foundation.
That foundation will enable our fifth-graders to transition to middle school on or above grade level... and prepare them to be college/career ready upon graduation from high school. We make that connection even with Kindergarten children so every Painted Stone Panther understands the value of a sound education and how that links to a successful future.
The link to that future includes not only school staff but parents, family members and community leaders. We consider ourselves a team working with everyone to provide the best educational experience possible.
Our doors are open to volunteers and we encourage adults to commit helping a student reach or exceed his or her potential. Please feel free to stop by and visit us... PSE is the Place to Be!
As the Principal, I am dedicated to being the instructional leader in the school. I am proud of the academic success we continue to have and want to see our students make even stronger gains. Please know my door is always open or I am just an email away. We want you to be part of the Painted Stone family of Panthers who have PRIDE... I am:
Prepared to do proficient work.
Responsible and respectful to others and myself.
Inspired to improve daily.
Diligent and dependable as a citizen.
Enthusiastic about learning.
...At Painted Stone we have PRIDE!
Michelle Shipley, Principal
