    "Welcome to Pelican Marsh Elementary School! As the proud principal of PME, I am excited to be part of a well-established school where academic excellence thrives and all students are challenged to reach their maximum potential through a foundation of rigorous instruction and shared practices, enabling them to become successful, life-long learners.

    Success at school starts with a strong partnership between all stakeholders including students, parents, teachers, administration, and community members. Here at PME, our school family and student families play an essential role in the academic success of our students.

    As school begins, be sure to stay in touch with school news and events through our active Parent/Teacher Organization, School Advisory Council, bi-weekly Pelican Scoop Parent Newsletter, parent emails from Administration, and Wednesday Communication folders.

    If you are interested in being a part of on-campus life or volunteering in our classrooms, please be sure to call the front office. You can also follow us on Twitter @pmepelicans and Facebook. Be sure to LIKE Pelican Marsh Elementary School to capture all the fantastic events happening on campus.

    Welcome again to the Home of the PME Pelicans, where our students are ON THE ROAD TO SUCCESS, WHERE LEADERS FINISH FIRST! I look forward to an amazing 2022-23 school year!

  • Welcome

    Pelican Marsh Elementary first opened its doors in 1996 and is one of the highest achieving schools in Collier County. Since its inception, our school has been committed to academic excellence and maximizing student performance. We have integrated the practice of Professional Learning Communities, standards-based instruction, and data driven decision making throughout our school. It is our belief that we can best help our students reach their full potential by working together. We have established a high performance learning culture based on high expectations and a positive school culture. That these expectations are realized and can be evidenced by the fact that Pelican Marsh Elementary has been an “A” school as determined by the Florida Department of Education Accountability Reporting: School Grades for the past seventeen consecutive years, and ranks in the top two percent of the 1,967 elementary schools in Florida. We also have been recognized as Gold Level Model Positive Behavior Support (PBS) School. We are fortunate in that Pelican Marsh receives extensive parent and community support and involvement. We have a very active Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and School Advisory Council (SAC). We have been awarded annually with the Golden School and Five Star School Awards based on volunteer hours, business partnerships, and community involvement. We firmly believe that both our school and parents mutually benefit through such involvement and participation. We welcome you to visit our school any time!

    Mission: Pelican Marsh Elementary School provides a positive, nurturing environment committed to achieving excellence. All students are challenged to reach their maximum potential through a strong foundation of rigorous instruction and shared practices, enabling them to become successful, life-long learners.

    Vision: Pelican Marsh Elementary is a community that honors all learners and works in partnership with parents and community members ensuring students' success.
