Principal's Message

Dear Emily C. Watkins Family,

Welcome to ECW Elementary – home of the Lions! I am honored to serve as the principal for Emily C. Watkins. It is a wonderful community.

ECW has a strong tradition of excellence that was quickly established in just a few years after opening in 2009. Our staff is an incredibly hard working and talented group of individuals that work daily to ensure that every student is challenged and grows both academically and socially. As a team, we strive for an inclusive, equitable, and engaging learning environment.

This task is made easier with the absolutely exceptional students that attend Emily C. Watkins. Our students come to school ready to learn and dedicated to their own learning. This is clearly a reflection of the parents and community who value education and partner with us to make the students successful.

It is my goal to get to know as many families as possible this year and to continue to build lasting relationships with the students and families that I serve. I encourage you to introduce yourself to me as we continue this most important journey of educating your children.


I look forward to working with you all.

Peri Eldridge
