Meet the Principal

A Message from Our Principal 

Welcome Frances Brandon-Pickett Elementary Parents and Guardians,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Mustang Nation and what we feel is the best elementary school in the state of Arizona.

I am entering my third year as the proud principal of Frances Brandon-Pickett Elementary. In my time here we have worked hard to continue the level of excellence set forth in years passed. We are an “A” rated school according to the Arizona Department of Education, and this is due in large part to my amazing staff and teachers. We work hard to meet the needs of every student. You will not find a more caring and supportive school community anywhere.

I encourage each of you to get involved in our school and community. We would love for you to join our PTO or volunteer for opportunities that we offer throughout the year. In closing, I realize that we are entering into a school year that is uncertain and not like any other. However, we are grateful that you have chosen us and my staff, and I will give our full effort to keep your kids safe and able to learn.

Thank you for trusting us with your child’s education. Go, Mustangs!
