Principal's Message

Dawn Armstrong, Principal

Principal Dawn ArmstrongIt is with great pleasure and excitement that I serve the Pearson's Corner community as principal. Although I am originally from Pennsylvania, I have called Hanover County my home since 1991. I have had the good fortune of meeting my husband, raising a family, and developing close friendships right here in Virginia. I am looking forward to a year filled with memorable moments at Pearson's Corner Elementary.

You will often hear the phrase “Paw Power” around our school. As we develop our student’s social-emotional toolbox, we highlight the traits of Paw Power at PCES! Each day, our Paw Power program helps our students fill their personal tool boxes with the strategies they need as responsible, productive citizens in our society. We are fortunate to have motivated students who are excited to learn, families who provide an enormous amount of support, and a highly qualified, seasoned staff to provide excellent instruction. Please join us and stay connected by joining our nationally-recognized PTA and using our division’s e-mail connection tools. We also have Facebook and Twitter pages to give you a closer look at our daily activities via social media. At any time, if I can be of assistance, please don't hesitate to contact me via e-mail.

Veronica Pitts, Assistant Principal

Assistant Principal Veronica PittsWelcome to Pearson’s Corner Elementary School, home of Paw Power! It is my sincere privilege to serve the students, faculty, and community of Pearson’s Corner. We have a duty to cultivate young minds by creating an equitable, student-centered school community that provides excellence in education for lifelong learning. I look forward to preserving existing, rich academic traditions and making new ones.

I am a native of Hampton, Virginia. I started in the field of education in 1993 upon completion of my undergraduate experience at James Madison University. I earned my master of education degree in administration and supervision from Virginia State University in 1998 and have served in administration since 2002. I have served the students and families in Hanover County for almost ten years as assistant principal at Elmont Elementary School and, presently, Pearson’s Corner Elementary School. 

Parents, thank you for sharing your most precious gift with us—your children! SOL scores certainly do not encapsulate all we do here at Pearson’s Corner, so please stop by and take a look for yourself at all of the great things we have going on here. It is going to be another dynamic year. I look forward to working with you and your children. If I can ever be of any assistance at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out to send me an e-mail or call me at (804) 723-3660. Have a great school year!
