Hello, Pope, Elementary Families, Students, and Community,

Thank you for visiting our website. As we usher in the 23-24 school year at Pope Elementary, I’m both excited and humbled by the journey ahead.

Goals and Foundation

Our primary goal remains the same: creating an environment where every student feels a deep sense of belonging and purpose. The foundation of our school’s success is built on solid relationships — with our students, their families, and the broader community. Your support and engagement is our greatest strength.

Our Community and Environment

At Pope Elementary, we’re steadfast in our belief that a supportive community and a nurturing environment pave the way for every child’s success. Exceptional teaching and continuous learning are not just ideals; they are expectations and realities here. It is a privilege to serve and be a part of the Thunderbird Community.
