Pierceton Elementary Earns an "A"
Pierceton Elementary School earned an "A' grade from the State of Indiana for the second year in a row!!!  This is a testament to the hard work put in by all stakeholders.  Our Pierceton Cubs have worked extremely hard in the classroom using the strategies they are being taught to grow academically and achieve at a high level.  They have taken ownership in their learning.  They know success at this level will result in success in their future. 
Our staff continues to be focused on student learning.  They have done a phenomenal job pushing aside distractions and obstacles to keep our "A" grade for two years in a row.  It is evident that they will do whatever is best and needed for the students of Pierceton Elementary.
Parents have continued to support both our students and staff.  Without their involvement, we would not produce the same results.  Last but not least, our Administrative team has continued to provide the resources necessary, along with the direction and guidance to support our school in achieving and sustaining our goals.  I am proud to be part of this school and corporation.  It is a privilege and honor to work with the students and this team of educators on a daily basis.  Congratulations, Pierceton Elementary School!

Mr. Polston

Just a few reminders to our parents

Lost & Found is located in our school commons area. There is a table that all items such as coats, hats, gloves, sweatshirts, and many other items are located. ​​​If you child is missing any items - have them check there first!

Wednesday's are a Delay Start Day. In the mornings we will start school 30 minutes later than normal.  For Pierceton this means that the doors will open at 8:15 am for breakfast. The doors open for everyone else at 8:25 am.
This delay schedule has been put into place so that our teachers are able to get some professional development time.  This is something that is mandatory for all certified staff.
