Ted Hooks, Principal

  • Welcome to Pepper Drive School. 
     
    We are incredibly proud of our longstanding reputation for excellence in learning. At Pepper Drive, we are CORE! (Challenging Ourselves to Reach for Excellence)
     
    Pepper Drive's mission continues:
     
    Pepper Drive School strives to challenge ourselves to think with depth, move with purpose, and create with imagination as we reach for excellence on our journey toward a college and career bound future.
     
    If you really look into our words, you can see that we want to capture importance of educating the whole child.  Students at Pepper Drive strive to achieve academic excellence, but we also move and create every day. 
     
    This year, Pepper Drive will be focusing on the simple sentence, "Every child grows."  As a staff and community, our task is to ensure that through the course of this year our students grow academically, socially, and physically.  At school, we will be looking closely at monitoring that growth and communicating with families. There is no doubt that the challenge of learning is a rigorous endeavor.  It's a challenge we face happily!
     
    We are in this as a team, and I encourage you to ask your child about his/her adventures at school each day.  Come in and see us. Ask questions. Volunteer! Together, we make all the difference in the world.
     
    My door is open to you.  I look forward to spending this year watching every child grow!
     
    Respectfully,
    Ted Hooks
