Message from the Principal

Welcome to Penrose Elementary!  

It is my pleasure to partner with you as we work in creating a brighter future through the children.  We are focused on a united goal:
To provide a high quality education in a safe, secure and child friendly environment.

Our school pledge that our students recite daily is:

  • I will use my mind to solve problems
  • I will use my hands to help those in need
  • I will promote peace and unity in my school and my community
Our 3 Bs initiative sums up the expectations of all students:
  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Ready

In addition, please support us to implement the following standards: 

  • Encourage your child to dress in a uniform everyday. 
  • Talk with your child about school and their learning successes.
  • Communicate with your child’s teachers throughout the year and especially during report conferences. 
  • Volunteer at Penrose as often as possible.
