Principal's Message

  • Mr. Poston    

    Mr. Poston is the Chatham County Schools 2018 Principal of the Year!

    Greetings Families:

    I am extremely excited about the work our students are doing each day in their classes.   Writing personal narratives, selecting just right books, showing numbers in expanded form using manipulatives and discussing the properties of matter are just a few examples of the engaging work I have observed this month.  


    We are committed to growing and developing the whole child at Pittsboro Elementary. As a staff, we work to grow thinkers, problem solvers, and students who are able to navigate social situations with their peers and adults in a proactive manner.


    For the past two years our school has received recognition from the state as a model school for Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS).  Each year we dedicate several weeks at the beginning of school to teach school-wide expectations to our students. Spending time teaching and reviewing our school rules will ensure safety and positive outcomes for all of our students throughout the year.   At Pittsboro Elementary, we use the acronym P.A.W.S. to remind our students of these expectations.


    P is for Positive Attitude,

    A is for Always be Respectful,

    W is for Work Hard,

    S is for Stay Safe.


    I am confident this will be a great school year.     I welcome your feedback and suggestions as we partner to make this the best year yet!  


    Mr. Poston
