Coffee with the Principal    

Please join us for our next Coffee with Principal to learn about school safety. Parents of all grade levels are invited to attend as this will be good information for all. The event will be held on March 9 in the school cafeteria. Please enter through the front office.



New Student Safety Procedures

Parents are welcome to walk their children to class the first week of school. Beginning Wednesday, August 16, 2017, if you intend to walk your child to class, we ask that you stop by the front office to check in and receive a visitor pass.  Teachers will be stationed at each entry door to help direct you back to the front office to check in.  Once the tardy bell rings, parents will be asked to say good-bye in the front office.

All grade level performances during the school day will take place at 8:00 am this school year. Parents are always invited to attend these performances. This year, if you wish to attend, please enter the school via the front office.  If you have returned the RSVP sent by your teacher, there will be a badge awaiting you at the front desk.  Otherwise, you will be asked to sign in as a visitor and receive a badge.

All adults will be asked to present a photo ID upon entering the school’s campus, whether for check-in, check-out, volunteering, or visiting. Please have yours ready.

Welcome To Our New Principal!

While we are sad to say farewell to Mr. Cooey, who endeared himself to us in the short time he was here, we are also happy to welcome our new principal, Mr. Larry Knight. We are sure that     N.B. Cook will prosper under his guidance. Here is a bit of an introduction from him:


"I was born in Sacramento, California but moved to Pensacola when I was six years old. Growing up I attended Annie McMillan Elementary, P.K. Yonge Elementary, Brownsville Middle School and Pensacola High School. After high school I joined the United States Marine Corps. After my tenure in the USMC, I attended Pensacola Junior College and the University of West Florida where I received my degrees in Elementary Education and Educational Leadership.   I have been in involved in education for over 23 years. All of those years have been in Escambia County Schools. I served as a tutor at A.A. Dixon Elementary, a teacher at R.C. Lipscomb Elementary and an administrator at Cordova Park, O.J. Semmes and Sherwood Elementary I am married to Sharon Knight.  We have five adult children; Ian, Christopher, Josh, Kyle and Eric.  We also have three wonderful grandchildren; Dakoda, Gunner, and Daymin. In my spare time I like to spend time with my grandchildren, read, sing karaoke, cook, and watch TV. I am a huge superhero fan and can be often seen wearing superhero apparel."
