Why Read 20 minutes a day comparison
Dear Parents and Families: Did you know? Reading just 20 minutes a day exposes your child to about 1.8 million words per year. Reading helps students develop a stronger vocabulary, and in addition, students who read for pleasure average higher grades in English, mathematics, science, and history! Encourage your child to read books for fun by attending our upcoming Scholastic Book Fair. Allow your child to choose the books they want to read! It’s a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Mark your calendar! Click for more information...

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Caregivers:
Welcome to the Pamlico Primary family!  As I begin my fourth year here at PCPS I am constantly reminded what a blessing it is to serve Pamlico County’s youngest learners and to work alongside some of the most passionate, dedicated teachers and staff members in our state.  As a parent myself to Colt (16) and Caleb (13), I value your role in the success of our school and welcome you to participate and support Pamlico Primary in our efforts to make the first years of school for our students a positive and memorable experience.  The journey begins at PCPS, and we are glad you are here!
