Welcome to Porterdale Elementary School, home of the RAMS!

Dear Parents and Families,

 On behalf of the Porterdale Elementary faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you and your child to our school for the 2022-2023 school year.  Our teaching team is deeply committed to creating a school environment where students want to learn, teachers want to teach, and parents want to become involved.   We will continue to maintain high expectations for student learning and provide supportive systems to ensure that all students are able to meet and exceed learning goals.   

This school year, we will be focusing on rigorous instruction and more authentic student engagement, while maintaining and improving the academic progress that we have made thus far.  We are counting on your support to make sure we have a successful school year.  You can help by ensuring that your child completes all homework and follows all directions given by teachers and staff.  

Thank you for trusting our team with your child. I am looking forward to working with you and your child during the 2022-2023 school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please communicate with your child’s teacher, or call the school at 770-784-2928.   Feel free to contact me if I may be of service to you or your family.
