Where is "Julius Patrick Elementary?


Meet Our Principal
Dr. Norvella Williams


n williamsWelcome to the 2018-2019 academic school year! It was with great anticipation that I entered into the genesis of this academic term. The talent and intellect that surround me pique my excitement. Julius Patrick is an amazing place for students to prepare for Junior High School. Moreover, it serves as a foundation whereby students can give birth to untapped potential. We continue the ongoing initiative to master the balance of academics and arts to meet the needs of our unique and outstanding student population. Our mission is to educate students for a world beyond the walls of our school.  It is my sincere belief that the foundation of our future accomplishments are embedded in the academic route that we create to form a true commitment to our students.

r beaudoinIt is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself as the new Assistant Principal at the new Julius Patrick. My passion for education and supporting the success of all students has been shaped over the last 15 years. In each of my roles it has been my goal to provide my students with the best instructional and educational opportunities. The last 7 years of my professional experience includes teaching and leading 6th graders at Arthur F. Smith Middle Magnet School and Alma Redwine Elementary School. I understand that 6th grade is a very formative year academically as well as socially. Providing the students of Julius Patrick with the most well-rounded education possible is my top priority. Through the shared commitment of learning our highly qualified teachers and paraprofessionals, knowledgeable support staff, committed community leaders, involved parents, and determined students will ensure that excellent educational opportunities are achieved.
