"Pocomoke Elementary School is located in Pocomoke City, Maryland, next to the beautiful Pocomoke River. We serve 400 students in grades PreK through 3. The faculty of the school believes all kids can learn. The staff focuses on instruction and its considerable resources to make that belief a reality. Through grants and the support of volunteers and the local community, the staff operates many after school academies which enrich the lives of its students. The school's Math, Engineering, and Science Academy has won numerous regional competitions and has placed second in the state. For five years in a row, one of its students was named MESA Student of the Year for the State of Maryland. Mrs. Karen McKelvey, a third grade teacher at PES, was named the Wal-Mart Teacher of the Year for 2005. Also for 2005, PES was named the Junior Achievement School of the Year. In the Spring of 2006, Pocomoke Elementary was recertified as a Green School, for its efforts in helping to improve our environment and for its conservation of energy.
The Pocomoke City Public Schools, an enthusiastic rural learning community, work collaboratively to empower all students to pursue rigorous academic standards and to develop into responsible, involved lifelong learners who can excel in their endeavors and fulfill their personal dreams in a global society."
