Payne Elementary – Paul Jones, Principal

Testing is wrapping up and we are at the beginning of the end.  Our students have worked very hard and done an awesome job completing the state assessments.  The students and staff have done an amazing job this year and I have to say, it has been my best year as a principal.  This is truly a wonderful community and the staff and students are a reflection of that!


Night of the Arts - STEAM NIGHT

Thursday May 9th Payne Elementary will be having its third annual Night of the Arts!!  All students grades preschool through 6th grade will be presenting a short program in the gym followed by several STEAM activities for the whole family and a visit with Johnny Tincap!!  Also a light meal will be provided for all that attend.

Time:  6:00 to 8:00 with doors opening at 5:30.


 6th Grade Visit to the Jr. High

 Our 6th graders are about to close a chapter in their academic careers here at Payne Elementary.  On May 6th they will be visiting the Jr. High and seeing their new academic setting for next year.  In 19 days (as of May 1st) they will no longer be Payne Elementary 6th graders, but Wayne Trace Junior High School students.  Good Luck!!!


Field Trips

The month of May is always the best time for field trips, and we have a few lined up for our students this month.  Our Kindergarten students will be visiting the Fort Wayne Zoo and our grades 3-6 students who achieved their AR Goals will be visiting the YMCA in Van Wert.  We also have a few local trips to the library lined up, so it will be an exciting and busy month for Wayne Trace Payne Elementary!!


Last Days

Our last day for Pre-school will be May 23rd, and our last day for Kindergarten will be May 24th.  The last day for grades 1-6 will be May 28th.
