Welcome to the George W. Watkins Elementary School family! On behalf of the faculty and staff we encourage you to become an active member of our school family and PTO. At Watkins Elementary we are dedicated to providing a quality education through a challenging academic program customized to meet the needs of each child. We are committed to growth in technology instruction, and we work hard to promote positive and strong school citizenship.
We do these things and more with your help. We are grateful for the countless hours of volunteer work and extensive financial support from our parents and PTO. The role you play each day at home, encouraging your child, ensuring homework is done, supporting our mission, speaks volumes to your child. We are excited for every new school year to begin.
