Welcome to Pevely Elementary

As the Principal of Pevely Elementary, 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 myself and write about a few of the amazing things happening at Pevely Elementary School!

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 R-I School District (High Ridge) teaching grades kindergarten and second.  I started my administrative career as an Assistant Principal at Northwest R-I School District prior to moving to 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 learners 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 things are happening within the walls of Pevely Elementary on a daily basis and I cannot wait for you to see for yourself. In 2022, Pevely Elementary became a Leader in Me Lighthouse School; an accomplishment that we are all extremely proud of!   

Please contact me if you have any questions or if I can be of assistance to you or your family. You can reach me at or (636) 479-5200. 

Lastly, I post updates/reminders about Pevely Elementary on Twitter (@MsKatieDunlap) and on the Pevely Elementary Facebook page. Please be sure to “like” and “follow” both of these for up to date information. 

Thank you for choosing Pevely Elementary for your child’s Kindergarten through 5th Grade education. I look forward to working with you and your child!
