Wednesday, September 4, 2018 - 1st Day Of School


Welcome To 2018-19 school year at Paint Branch Chinese Immersion Elementary School!  We begin this year with excitement and high expectations for our students and our school.  We're welcoming our NEW Principal, Dr. Tricia Hairston, along with more than 20 NEW PBES Staff Members!  We're also welcoming back our Academic Dean, Mrs. Costea, and more than 70 of our returning PBES Staff!  Last but certainly not least, we send a HUGE BUSY BEE welcome our NEW and returning students and parents/guardians - along with our community partners, PTA sponsors, donors and friends

We also send our appreciation, warmest regards and best wishes to our Former Acting Principal, Mrs. Cynthia Rodgers - whose leadership, dedication, hard work, commitment, and vision made our school a better place this past school year.  We sincerely hope that she will continue her good work of shaping the growth and progress of another deserving school and its students and parents, just as she has done with all of us here at Paint Branch Chinese Immersion Elementary School.
