Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year, and thank you for visiting our new and improved school website!  

Phippsburg Elementary School is a pre-kindergarten through fifth grade public elementary school located in an area rich with natural resources. Phippsburg is a peninsula community bounded by the Kennebec River and the Atlantic Ocean.

At PES, we believe that a healthy home-school partnership contributes to every child’s success. We are fortunate to have a solid core of volunteers at our school, and encourage everyone to become involved.  We invite and encourage you to visit our school and become involved.  

The staff and I are very proud to be a part of a community that so highly values our school, and its students.  The generosity that members of the community show us is nothing short of amazing.  Without the support of community organization such as Phippsburg Land Trust, Phippsburg Conservation Committee, Bates Morse Mountain Preserve, and of course, our very active PTA we would not be able to offer our students the many enrichment activities that they experience.  We thank them for providing the resources that allow students to go hiking, clamming, attending cultural events in Portland and visiting vernal pools. 

For current news throughout the school year, please be sure to click on the link to our newsletter, The Phippsburg Explorer’s Log.  These weekly newsletters are sent home in our Thursday folder, and may be e-mailed to families and friends every week throughout the school year.  You can also check the PES Facebook page for up to the minute information.
