About Our School
Welcome to Pike Elementary!
On behalf of our entire staff, I thank you for visiting the Pike County Elementary School website. The elementary school years are a particularly exciting time for students and require a PCES family of staff, families and community members to come together to mold students through their unique needs and talents. At PCES, we strive to instill in each child an excitement for learning by creating a school that students love. Our teachers and staff are highly qualified and have high expectations of our students. While academics come first, our school is an especially unique elementary school offering many extracurricular activities and clubs of which students may participate. We offer an active Lego League, art club, chorus, and an acting club with a full theatrical performance in the spring.
Many great things happen at our school through family and community collaboration. If you would like to be involved in the many exciting thing going on with our students, please consider joining our PTO and volunteering in our school. Parents are an integral part of the education of students and can participate through our very active PTO, our School Council, field trips, student mentoring program or a classroom volunteer. I encourage you to select one or more of these areas and become involved. Simply inquire about the steps necessary to become a PCES volunteer, and we will get you started! In order to make our school a successful and thriving educational institution, we must have the involvement of parents and community members.
