A Letter from our New Principal...

August 21, 2018

Dear Parents/Guardians:

I am Dr. Tricia Hairston, the newly appointed principal of Paint Branch Elementary School. I welcome you and your family to the 2018-2019 school year. I am very excited to be a part of the Paint Branch Family and look forward to embracing the “greatness” that Paint Branch ES has to offer. One priority, among many, is to establish a collaborative partnership with parents, business leaders, and other stakeholders that will support our school with achieving academic excellence.

As a child, my biggest dream was to become an educator. I am currently entering my twenty-eighth year of tenure with the Prince George’s County Public School System. I have had the honor of serving students and parents in the capacity as a Special Education Teacher, Assistant Principal, Principal, Regional Instructional Specialist, Area and Instructional Director. I am a product of the Prince George’s County Public School System. I am proud to share that I graduated from two of the county’s most prestigious institutes, which are the University of Maryland, College Park and Bowie State University.

I look forward to start this exciting journey with you and thank you in advance for this unique opportunity to serve you and your family.

Educationally yours,

Dr. Tricia Hairston

Principal
