Principal's message

Welcome to Port Guichon Elementary School!  Whether you are new to our school or returning, you are fortunate to be part of a dedicated and caring group of students and adults.

As a school, we are committed to engaging all students in learning the academic and social skills needed to achieve their individual potential. We do this in ways that promote:

  •  learning throughout life
  •  meeting challenges with confidence using critical thinking skills
  •  being responsible to oneself and others


In addition, our staff continuously explore ways to integrate curriculum and instruction, using problem-based and project-based learning in order to make learning relevant and meaningful for our students.  Our teachers and students focus on combining the 3 Ts: Technology, Team Work and Thinking Skills, with the 3 Rs: Reading, Responsibility, and Respect.

We need the energy and expertise of the total community to prepare our students for tomorrow.  Parents as partners in education are always welcome and appreciated.

Mrs. J. Keller, Principal
