Principal's Message

Hello Purche Avenue Elementary and Purche STEAM Magnet School 

Parents, Caregivers and Community:

WE ARE THE PURCHE PANTHERS! As Purche Panthers, we believe in the expectation of excellence for our students and staff. We believe all students can learn at that when you walk into our walls you see, feel, experience, and hear rigorous teaching and learning. We are a community of safe, respectful and responsible student and adult learners who are passionate about learning and achieving.  Our collaboration with all stakeholders will produce a nurturing and positive environment that fosters curiosity and inquiry and develops students. Our hope is that Purche students will excel in a culturally diverse society that features evolving technology. 

Dr. Gina Barnett, Principal
