Welcome to Pevely Elementary

My name is Katie Dunlap and it is with great excitement that I introduce myself as the Principal of Pevely Elementary School.  It is a tremendous honor to lead a school community with such amazing students, staff, and parents.  I am thankful for the opportunity to share a little about me, but to also talk about the amazing things happening at Pevely Elementary!

Being the leader of an elementary school has always been a passion of mine.  I was fortunate to gain experience as a classroom teacher in a variety of school districts around the St. Louis area prior to becoming an administrator.  I have experience as a teacher at Gateway Science Academy (St. Louis), Grandview RII School District (Hillsboro), and Northwest rI School District (High Ridge) teacher grades kindergarten and second.  I started my administrative career at the Northwest RI School District prior to moving to the Dunklin R-5 School District. 

When you enter the doors of Pevely Elementary, you can expect to see all members of our staff focusing on our mission. "Educating Today for a Better Tomorrow."  In addition to our mission, I personally have the following beliefs:

  • All students can learn, grow, and achieve success while at Pevely Elementary
  • We will prepare Pevely Elementary students to be lifelong learnings that are productive members of our community in an ever changing world.
  • Positive relationships, trust, and communication will help all members of the school succeed.
  • It is a privilege to educate the students of Pevely Elementary alongside highly qualified members of the staff and dedicated community members.

Amazing thinks are happening with the walls of Pevely Elementary on a daily basis and I cannot wait for you to see for yourself.  Please contact me if you have any questions or if I can be of assistance to you.  You can reach me at or (636) 479-5200.  Also, you can follow me on Twitter @MissKatieDunlap
