Welcome to Paris!  I am thankful to be the principal at Paris Elementary!   Our school is a gem of Greenville County, known for its top-notch staff, high-achieving students, and very involved parents.  Paris is in its second century, having celebrated one hundred years in 2012!  We are striving to build on past successes and continue the traditions of excellence. 

Our focus this year will be to:

  • Continue an emphasis on instructional time and practices
  • Be selective about non-instructional activities in order to further student achievement
  • Improve and maintain an environment of excellence as an institution of learning. 

On behalf of the Paris staff, thank you for the privilege you have given us to work with your child.  We consider it an honor to team with you to educate your child and pledge to work hard and to act in your child’s best interest to the best of our abilities.  Please contact us with any concerns or suggestions to make Paris an even better place for your child!

We consider parents to be an integral part of the team and want you to feel welcomed and informed.  We invite you to be involved in your child's education.  Please -

  • Enforce completion of school work and good behavior.
  • Communicate regularly with teachers.
  • Be an active member of PTA. 
  • Support the school positively. Talk to the school about concerns and suggestions. 

I look forward to a great year as we continue the traditions of excellence.
