Welcome to our school!


Dear Montezuma Elementary School Families,


     I would like like to introduce myself as the Principal of Montezuma Elementary School. I am very excited to be part of the Cougar family.


I believe in a collaborative school environment, where all members of the school community work together as a team. I believe that our school goal should be for all students to feel safe, successful, and comfortable at school. 


     As a team leader, I believe that it is my job to be accessible and approachable to students, families, and staff. I believe in relationship building and hope that I will build long lasting, positive relationships with all of the students and families at Montezuma Elementary School. 


   I believe in the importance of building strong community relationships, and I hope that our team will continue to work with current community partnerships, as well as to develop new community partnerships. 


   I am looking forward to meeting all of you. Please stop by or contact me at anytime. 



Michele Pelfrey

Montezuma Elementary School Principal
