Principal's Corner

A message from Mrs. Folk

Dear Parent or Guardian,

I am happy to say that the 2017-2018 school year is here.

There are some exciting things in store for the 2017-2018 school year. Over the summer our cafeteria and interior walls have received a colorful touch. I can’t wait for our students to see it. Our team is preparing to kick off on a new journey. Pomaria-Garmany Elementary School has been selected to join The Energy Bus for School Leadership Journey (EBSLJ) and become a certified Energy Bus School for the 2017-2018 school year! The Energy Bus principles will help our students develop the world class skills, and life and career characteristics of the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate. You will hear much more about this journey in the coming weeks.  

There will be some new faces added to our PGE family. Please help me welcome the following new staff members:

·         Jonathan Jamison, Guidance Counselor

·         Melanie Bedenbaugh, Kindergarten Teacher

·         Kelly Pelfrey, Art Teacher

·         Polly Carter, Instructional Assistant


Pomaria-Garmany Elementary School is a Title One school for the 2017-2018 school year. Title One of the federal No Child Left Behind legislation is a federal program that provides opportunities for the children served to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the challenging state standards. Parent Involvement is an integral part of the Title One program. We need to partner with you to ensure your child’s success. I encourage you to become involved in your child’s education and our school throughout the 2017-2018 school year. Maintaining constant communication with your child’s teacher is crucial. Check their folders and agenda regularly and ask questions when you need clarification. Please consider joining our PTO at Open House. This organization works hard to provide support to our school and classrooms. We invite those who are interested in volunteering to do so. We are always in need of folks to read to our students and help in our classrooms. If you are interested and can contribute weekly, the PTO will pay for your background check to have you approved. Please see me for more information.

Our Energy Bus “ride” for the 2017-2018 school year begins on August 17, 2017.

See you soon,

Lindsey Folk
