Mrs. Gia Sibert Hoke, Principal
As principal of Penny Road Elementary School, it is my pleasure for my staff and I to welcome you to an amazing year! Here at Penny Road Elementary School we embrace opportunities to partner with you in order to ensure that our children can maximize daily learning experiences while achieving their highest potential.
My passion and purpose in education is to envision, empower, and engage students, teachers and parents in the educational process by using collaboration and teamwork to create a shared vision of academic success for our students. With a visionary leadership style, I have the ability to not only see things for what they are, but for the potential for what they can be. Therefore, I envision learning environments that are not only dynamic in nature, but engaging as well so that all students have access to learning opportunities that allow them to grow and achieve academic excellence. I believe in empowering our students to wonder, to explore, and to investigate while becoming forward thinking leaders and self-directed learners in order to unleash their full potential to become tomorrow’s leaders. Finally, I believe in the power of shared conversations that are centered on high academic standards for all students in order to foster, create, and develop paths of success for each and every child. It is truly my privilege to serve as your child's principal. I am honored to be a part of the Penny Road community and I look forward to working with each of you.

Dear Penny Road Parents and Guardians,
It is with much pleasure and enthusiasm that I serve as Penny Road’s Assistant Principal. I am extremely passionate about working with all students, and encouraging their potential as they work to build a strong elementary foundation. I am also equally passionate about working with our staff and community partners.
My affinity for education began over twenty years ago and has never wavered. My goal is to make sure every student has equal access to exceptional teachers and an exceptional education. I am humbled and honored to work alongside a wonderful community of educators who are willing to go above and beyond expectations to serve our students. At Penny Road we work daily to create an environment which weaves together communication, critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, positivity, and social emotional growth.
We understand that it takes a team effort to meet the needs of our students and we look forward to partnering with you this year. Parent participation and cultivating relationships with our families is valued at Penny Road.
I am excited and thrilled to think of what we can accomplish together at Penny Road and in the words of Aristotle, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”
Mrs. Patricia R. Williams
