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!  Let’s hope the normalcy continues.


Night of the Arts 

Thursday, May 12th, Payne Elementary will be having its fifth annual Night of the Arts!!  All students in grades preschool through 6th grade will be presenting a short program in the gym. Unlike last year, we will have guests in to see the program.  There will also be other events following the program and food as well!!  This will be a HUGE event for WTPE! 

 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 4th they will be visiting the Jr. High and seeing their new academic setting for next year.  Good Luck to the future class of 2028!!

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.  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 18th & 19th.  The last day for grades K-6 will be May 24th.
