Principal's Message

Message from the Principal


I am very excited to be the principal at Pate Elementary.  This school has a very special place in my heart.  I attended this school as a child and spent many years as a teacher and coordinating teacher here. 

We believe we have a positive environment that is challenging and promotes higher levels of thinking for our children. We incorporate the state standards to prepare our children to be competitive no matter where they may go in the future. We believe the 4Cs-collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking can serve as the foundation as we prepare our students to have the 21st century skills they will need to succeed in life, citizenship and work.


Please visit soon to see our enthusiasm for teaching and learning. We are the best and we expect the best from ourselves, our parents and our children.
