$5000 Landscape from Lowe's Grant Winner!! 
Petersburg has received a Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant in the amount of $5000. Our project, written and submitted by Mrs. Grace Baker, entitled “Growing Inside and Out at Petersburg,” involves landscaping and beautification of our front entrance. We know that the community celebrates with us and will be even prouder of Petersburg when the project is completed. A special thank you to Mr. Mitchell Jordan for his assistance with the landscape plan.

Watch along with us throughout the spring and summer months to see this project develop.

2nd Annual "Real Men Read"




Mrs. Griffin, school guidance counselor, along with Mrs. Crow and Mrs. Conner, organized a terrific "Real Men Read" event.  Gentlemen from the surrounding area were invited to come and read a book to classroom students as an early morning read aloud.  The visitors were treated to breakfast and door prizes and fun dialogue with the students and staff.  We were so glad to welcome them to our school. Realizing many of our children are missing positive male role models in their lives, these men gave their time away from their jobs and families to come share a moment with Petersburg students.  We thank you! 


Congratulations to our new
Teacher of the Year

Ms. Emalee Bryant


Congratulations to Ms. Emalee Bryant for being chosen to represent Petersburg Primary School as Teacher of the Year for the 2014-2015 school year.  Ms. Bryant is from Cheraw and grew up in the Chesterfield County School District.  She has been a Chesterfield County School District educator for four years, with each of her years being at Petersburg.  Bryant currently teaches second grade. 
Ms. Bryant earned her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Coastal Carolina University in 2010.  She is currently working on her Master of Education degree in Instruction Accommodations from Francis Marion University.  She will graduate in May 2014.  

Ms. Bryant feels her success comes from building a classroom community in which her students feel comfortable and can be themselves and can feel safe each and every day. She believes building strong relationships with each student is essential so they know they are loved and cared about.  “This bond must be there before real learning can ever take place,” states Bryant.  “Every child can learn and it is my job to help them reach their personal best by targeting their individual needs and learning styles.”
