Welcome Letter

Welcome to Paynter Elementary School! As the principal, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our school and our website. Whether you are a member of our school community, or looking to become one, we are glad that you are here! Paynter Elementary School is located in the South Hills of Pittsburgh, tucked away but centrally located with easy access to the Waterfront, Downtown Pittsburgh, and Route 51.

Two things make Paynter Elementary exceptional: our staff and our students. The quality of our teachers is unmatched. They are constantly seeking new and better ways to reach all students, not just academically, but socially and emotionally as well. Paynter students are awesome! One unique characteristic of our student body is the diverse cultural backgrounds of our families. Not only does the wealth of diversity of our student body instill values of acceptance and an understanding and respect of differences, attending a diverse school can help prepare your child for citizenship in today's multicultural society.

Thank you for sharing your students with us! Together, we will watch how rapidly your child blossoms in a new way, each and every day!

Sincerely,

Tricia Fusco, Principal
