Dear Potranco Elementary Families,
I would like to extend a warm welcome to all who are new to our school and welcome back all who are returning as we begin the 2018-2019 school year at Potranco Elementary. I am excited and honored to return to Potranco Elementary as the new principal. I am fortunate to begin my 13th year with Medina Valley ISD where I educated students at Potranco Elementary for 6 years. I hope to create meaningful partnerships with the community to ensure student social, emotional, and academic success. I sincerely care about all children and their families, which motivates me to provide a quality experience for each student. It is of utmost importance to me to ensure a safe, positive learning environment.
We have an exceptional school community. Our faculty and staff work diligently to help students learn and grow. Our students are eager to learn and continue to show their leadership as they progress in their education at the secondary level. Our parents volunteer time to support our school. The Potranco team truly appreciates the support you provide for your children at home and at school to help them meet their learning goals. At Potranco Elementary, we are always seeking improvement, and we aspire to unite with you in our efforts. Children are the top priority.
Please feel free to contact the school with any questions or concerns.
