Introducing Our NEW PRINCIPAL...Mrs. Melanie Philpot...WELCOME!

I will initiate and lead programs to provide clear, concise information both internally to professional staff and externally to students, parents and community stakeholders.  My belief is that students make choices, and most of the time there are natural consequences for these choices.  They should be held accountable in a consistent and fair manner.   

As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors - staff, students, and parents - are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment.  I will be working closely with our staff to guarantee that all of our students are intellectually challenged and have access to the social and emotional support critical to students.   My highest priority is our kids and is the single most important area that I will not compromise. Tyner Elementary School students deserve the best!  I am passionate about my mission as principal and I will make decisions that are in the best interest of your child.


In closing, when we ALL work together as a learning community and do things with our students' best interest as the focus, we will continue to be a GREAT school!  Our job is to continue to strive for excellence and make Tyner Elementary School even better than before! 


If I can ever be of assistance, please call or email me! It is through being a collaborative, learning community with consistent, honest, and open communication that I can best serve our students. Thanks for the opportunity to serve our GREAT community.  Go Cardinals!!! 

Warmest Regards,

Melanie Philpot
