Principal's Message

Paint Lick Elementary is an extraordinary place.  Our school enjoys a rich tradition of excellence that our students, staff, parents, and community members are proud of.  Our success is evident in our recognitions as a Distinguished school and a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, but also clear the minute one enters the building.  The warm and nurturing environment we cultivate brings to mind words like “family” and “home.”  I am honored to join the Paint Lick family as principal and am so happy to be home.   


Our high expectations and personalization are carried out in our mission:  “to prepare ALL students to become productive members of a changing society.”  Our outstanding staff members are committed to providing a solid foundation of academic content while nurturing and developing each child’s individual gifts and character. It is my hope that our students will leave Paint Lick ready to take on any challenge they might face, but also with the values of compassion and kindness within their hearts. 


Key to the continued success of Paint Lick is the strong partnership between our school and the community.  We want our school to be a place where your voice is heard, you feel welcome, and where your input and contributions are valued.  Please view my 30/60/90 entry plan below and come by anytime. I look forward to working with you and welcoming you home.
