Welcome to Pershing Elementary School, home of the Tigers.

Pershing Elementary School is home to 525 K-5 grade students. Our school day begins at 8:00 a.m. and concludes at 2:10 p.m. Our Kindergarten is a full day program. We do not provide before or after school care, however, some of our students do go to the Joliet YMCA afterschool program, where transportation is provided by the YMCA. The students at Pershing Elementary School have the option of a hot lunch program if they so desire. Our breakfast program begins at 7:40 and concludes at 8:00 a.m. The Pershing Elementary School staff prides themselves on meeting the needs of all our students! We all welcome you to Pershing Elementary School where every child can succeed!
