A Message from Principal

Welcome to Pershing Elementary School!

Pershing Elementary School is home to approximately 580 students (kindergarten-fifth grade). Our diverse student population and Tiger team spirit creates a fantastic learning community. We offer general education and special education programming. Learning at Pershing is a partnership between students, parents, and staff to provide an outstanding educational experience for all students. When working together, students learn and grow academically, behaviorally, socially, and emotionally.

We have an active and growing Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO). Pershing also has an alumni association that welcomes all graduates to participate. Please call the Pershing offcie (815)-725-0986 to receive more information.
