Principal's Message

Parents, Students, and Community Members,

Thank you for visiting James Island Elementary School’s website. It is my sincere pleasure and honor to be working with a great school and community. I am excited to work with such an outstanding staff, students, parents, and community to provide the best educational environment possible for our students.  

As the year continues I am thrilled about our progress thus far and all that is ahead of us this school year. I would like to encourage all of our stakeholders to work together to make the future of James Island Elementary a bright one. Parents and community members, let’s develop a growth mindset that will allow us to feel comfortable taking risks and implementing new ideas. Students, let’s continue to let our lights shine as we take advantage of all learning opportunities that James Island Elementary has to offer.

Please know that I am always a phone call or email away for questions, comments, or concerns. You may reach me at 843-762-8243 or I look forward to a great second half of the school year as the principal of James Island Elementary.
