Schools History

Hubert Reynolds

Purvis Upper Elementary School was officially created in July of 2007. Prior to July 2007, grades three and four were part of a K-4 elementary school and grade five was a part of the middle school. Pulling all of 
these grades together was a challenge but proved worth while. We have been able to provide 
students with a transition from the lower elementary to the middle school. The teaming approach to teaching, allows teachers to specialize in one or more subject areas. This also helps to prepare 
students for the multiple transitions between classes when they go to Purvis Middle School.

The Importance of Attendance:
* Attendance matters for doing well in school and life
* Attendance helps develop good habits
* Too many absences will slow down instruction for all students
* Children will suffer academically if they miss 10% of school days
* Chronic absences is a leading warning sign that a student will drop out
