Welcome to Partee Elementary School

Important Information

Parent Perception Survey

We have had a great start to the school year, and parents are encouraged to check into the Parent and Student Portal to see what your students are working on in their classes and how they are progressing.  A little attention from you goes a long way in keeping your student on the pathway to success.  If your student is struggling, reach out to his/her teacher to discuss areas in which your student could improve or use more support. 

Parents can share their feedback by participating in the school district’s annual Perception Survey.  The survey can be accessed by following the link below or through the parent portal.  Results of the survey help school leaders, teachers, and the district learn what is being done well at each school and what areas need improvement.  Your name will not be used and your answers will remain confidential.

Take the survey.

The Bert Show's Big Thank You to Our Soldiers

Once again,  “The BERT Show" is holding its annual "Big Thank You" campaign, where the show hopes to encourage people to send handwritten letters to every serviceman and woman who are stationed overseas.

Over the past several years, The Bert Show community helped to express a BIG THANK YOU with over a million hand written letters of thanks to every serviceman and woman deployed outside the United States. This year our goal is the same, but we can only do this with your help. Let’s pull together to make this project a success.

Follow the link below for more information.  There are strict guidelines for the letters.  You can also hear former President Bill Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama on the Bert Show.  They called in to thank the Bert Show and the community.

 Students, please give your letters to your homeroom teacher by Friday, October 24.

Parent Portal


All parents are encouraged to sign up for the parent portal. You will have online access to your student's schedule, attendance, grades, discipline, and much more.

If you need to update your e-mail address for parent portal, you will need to fill out a new parent portal request form in the front office.  Due to the sensitive nature of the student information available through parent portal, we cannot make these changes by phone and ask for a valid photo ID.

Resources from the county, including a video to navigate the portal, can be found here.
