Message from Principal

  • Dear Forts Pond Elementary School Mallard Family,

    It is a true honor to introduce myself as the new principal of Forts Pond Elementary School. I hope this message finds you enjoying the rejuvenating days of summer, all while bringing excitement about the new school year ahead! 

    At Forts Pond Elementary School, we will Be Kind, Learn Together, Celebrate Big! I am eager to work in partnership with you this upcoming school year as we make this vision come to life. I will continue to facilitate a safe and positive culture where staff, students, and families feel valued, supported, and have a voice. This will happen through clear communication, strong school and community relations, and strategic innovation and planning.  

    I received a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree from Winthrop University in the areas of Elementary Education and Curriculum and Instruction. I also hold a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from the University of South Carolina. With sixteen years of experience in education (most recently serving as an assistant principal here at “The Pond”), my commitment to students, colleagues, this school family, and the Pelion community, coupled with my passion and dedication to providing superior educational experiences, makes me energized about what the future holds at Forts Pond Elementary School!  

    In closing, I heartily welcome your conversation and positive input. Please feel free to contact me as we embark on another wonderful school year at FPES!  

    Please note - The 2024-2025 school year begins on August 7 for grades 1st - 5th, 4K and 5K will have a staggered start with their first days being throughout August 7–August 9.  More information to come about The Pond’s "Back to School Bash", where you will be able to meet the teachers and staff, complete important paperwork, and enjoy mingling with your fellow mallards!  Please watch the school’s website and follow us on FPES Facebook and FPES Instagram.

    At Forts Pond Elementary School, 
    We trust each other.
    We care. 
    We work together to do our best.  
    We celebrate every person.
    We are the MIGHTY MALLARDS!

    With Love,
    Casey Davis
