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 have done an awesome job completing the state assessments. The students and staff have done an amazing job this year considering the obstacles they have had to overcome!
Night of the Arts
Friday, May 14th Payne Elementary will be having its fourth annual Night of the Arts!! All students in grades preschool through 6th grade will be presenting a short program in the gym. Because we are still under restrictions from the Governor due to the pandemic, we are having the program during the school day (no public attendance), but it will be videotaped and put on Facebook live and on the school website for everyone to enjoy!
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 11th they will be visiting the Jr. High and seeing their new academic setting for next year. Good Luck to the future class of 2027!!
The month of May is always the best time for field trips, and we have a few lined up for our students this month. Thank you to the Board of Education for allowing us to schedule field trips safely and give our students an educational experience outside our building!!
Our last day for Pre-school will be May 24th-25th, and our last day for Kindergarten will be May 26th. The last day for grades 1-6 will be May 28th.
BREAKFAST and LUNCH remain free for the remainder of the school year 2020-2021, thanks to a grant received from United States Department of Agriculture.
Be on the lookout for the launch of Payne Elementary’s Facebook page.
