Poteau Upper Elementary School
Welcome to Poteau Upper Elementary where every student is someone special!
Upper Elementary School is a great place to attend school because of the dedication of the staff, parents and community. Our 44 certified teachers and 22 non certified set high expectations for the 560 students and inspire and motivate them to attain those expectations. We provide a positive and safe learning environment which allows children to grow and be the best they can be academically, physically, socially, and emotionally.
Our goal is for our students at Upper Elementary to become self-directed learners, productive citizens, critical thinkers, and cooperative contributors to the classroom as well as society. To be able to accomplish this goal takes a combined effort of the students, their teachers and you. Your involvement includes encouraging good school attendance, talking with your child about their day, assisting with homework, provide daily reading time, conferring often with the classroom teachers and participating in school activities. We have the highest hopes and expectations for our students and know you have those same hopes and expectations.
Please join with us this year to make it the best year ever at Upper Elementary!
