Our Principal

  • Greetings from Adrain Pendelton, Principal

    Welcome to a new school year at Obama Elementary School!

    I am Adrain Pendelton, the proud principal of Obama Elementary School.  I have worked in the Saint Paul School District since 1996.   Prior to me becoming principal, I spent ten years as a teacher in the Early Childhood Family Education Program.  In fact I am a former parent of this school as my only child was educated here from Kindergarten through six grade.  I earned both a Bachelor and Master degree from the University of Minnesota and an Educational Specialist Degree from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.

    Our mission at Obama Elementary is to inspire our scholars to reach high levels of social and academic achievement and to become future leaders through a collaborative system of support.  My purpose as leader is to promote student learning through teaching and instruction. I believe that leadership should be interactive and regenerated throughout so that it becomes available to all scholars, staff, parents and community leaders. This is a key element of school success.

    Thank you very allowing me to serve as principal.  We are dedicated to provide Every Child, Every Chance, Every day to be successful at school and to be prepared to go to college.

    As you explore our website keep in mind that its purpose is to provide you a snap shot view of the great scholars, talented staff and academic instruction offered at Obama Elementary.  For a more personal contact, I encourage you to call our school and set a time to tour.
