Mr. Burt Batten, Principal

Greetings Families! My name is Burt Batten and I am excited to serve you and your child as Principal of Morrisville Elementary.

My goal is to make Morrisville a wonderful school for your child. I look forward to partnering with you to provide your child an enriching learning environment and to support your child's academic progress, character, and skills.

I have worked for the Wake County Public School System since 1999 as a teacher and administrator. After working as an administrator at year round schools in the district from 2008 to 2016 I was honored to open Pleasant Grove Elementary and serve as its leader from 2016 to 2023. Now, I am excited to join Morrisville and look forward to working with you and your child.

We will use this website and other activities to celebrate the outstanding creativity and character demonstrated by Morrisville students. Please let me know if I can assist you with any concern or question for your child. You can email me at
