from the desk of Potterville Elementary School Principal, Cheri Christensen 

Dear Parents and Guardians of Potterville Elementary School,

I am excited and honored to welcome each and every one of you to the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year at Potterville Elementary.  This school year will be a year of setting and reaching attainable goals, working harder and smarter and taking our school and student achievement to the next level of “GREATNESS”.  

At Potterville Elementary we are dedicated to a student-centered program that promotes academic excellence through an enriched, rigorous curriculum.  As a staff, we are here to support all students, by any means necessary, to ensure they reach their fullest academic potential. We look forward to working with students, parents, and the members of the community to provide a high-quality education that all children deserve.

This year, students can look forward to encountering a highly intensive and challenging academic program that will push them to work beyond their limits.  However, I am confident that all students have the capacity and ability to meet our expectations and the demands of their new classes and teachers.  Our goal is to ensure that all students become critical thinkers, active problem-solvers, inquisitive readers, and thoughtful writers.  We do all of this to prepare students for the demands of the real-world so they may become productive citizens, become our future leaders, and contribute and/or give back something positive to the community.

In order to make all of this a reality, we have added Reading Coaches to the building who will not only help our students, but will help our teachers with interventions to best fit our student needs.

I look forward to working with all of you and pushing our students to all academic heights.  On behalf of the staff of Potterville Elementary, I want to again welcome all of you and thank you for allowing me to be a part of the Potterville school community where SUCCESS IS NOT AN OPTION…..BUT AN EXPECTATION.
