Welcome to the Pelham City Schools Website! I am thrilled to start my second year in Pelham as your Superintendent. After only a year living in Pelham, it has become very evident to me that the Pelham Community is serious about supporting the boys and girls attending Pelham City Schools. I believe that your support for our educational programs, athletic programs, band, cheerleaders, FFA, and other extra curricula activities and your support and attendance at the Community “Working Work Sessions” have been catalysts for us to implement some of the changes we have made during the previous year. As we go forward, we will continue to improve on existing programs and activities. We will work to be the school system in South West Georgia where parents want to send their children, “The School System of Choice.” We will work toward a community slogan where parents will say, “If you are not going to Pelham, you should be.”
As your Superintendent, I take great pride in welcoming everyone back to school for the 2014-2015 school year. This year, we have several new staff members that I want the Pelham Community to welcome to our Family including, three new principals. During the summer, our Board Members, Administrators, Teachers, and Staff have been working tirelessly making plans to prepare for the new school year. We are working to fulfill our mission “A Commitment to Educational Excellence Every Day in Every Way.” I believe that if our entire community, faculty, staff, and students commit to the mission then we will truly see Pelham City Schools reach its full potential where every student will graduate ready for college or a career. Working together as a family, we can and we will make this year a very special year for all of us!
Everyone should remember that Pelham IS a “Special Place!” Going forward, I will strive to do all I can on behalf of the Pelham City Schools to make Pelham even more special in the eyes of our Community, the Region and the State. Again, our goal is to make Pelham City Schools the School System of “Choice” for this entire area. We will strive toward improving our academic success and continuing to offer a wide array of athletic and extra curricula programs.
The opportunity to be here in Pelham is an honor that my family and I cherish. I can assure you that the education and welfare of your children will always be my priority. I look forward to another great year here in Pelham City Schools. Please use this website to find out more about your schools and upcoming school events.
If ever I can be of assistance, do not hesitate to call upon me. Go Hornets!
