  • Congratulations to Millena Carapia, currently a 5th grader at the Frank E. Thompson Middle School! Last spring, while a 4th grade student at the Claiborne Pell Elementary School, Mellena worked with Art Supervisor Diane Sheehan on artwork to represent the State of Rhode Island for the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House. Millena worked on a design with the state flag, bird and state flower. Each state is represented at the annual Easter Egg Roll, and Mellena Carapia’s design was selected as the Rhode Island design! What an amazing honor!

  • School Hours Changing

    Safety of students is of the utmost importance at Claiborne Pell Elementary School. To help support bus arrival and dismissal we will be changing the Pell school start time to 9:00 am and dismissal will be promptly at 3:30 pm.  We will begin serving breakfast at 8:30 in the cafeteria.  Parent drop off time will begin at 8:45 am and pickup line will begin at 3:25 pm.  The Pell Annex, located at the John F. Kennedy School, will adhere to the same schedule and times.   We apologize for the short notice and any inconvenience this may cause your family. We are looking forward to a great school year! Thanks for all you do to support our students!
