Message from Dr. Joyce Bannerot, Principal:
Welcome to Popham Elementary School, where great things happen every day. We serve about 880 students from Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth Grade. Popham Elementary, which was founded in 1957, is the oldest school in the Del Valle Independent School District. Our school is named for I. W. Popham, who was the first superintendent for the district.
Our school is special because of the people who make up the “Popham Family”. We have an excellent staff, caring parents, and involved adopters and volunteers. For the past eight years, our parents, adopters, students, and staff have rated Popham an “A” school. We have earned numerous awards and recognitions. The most recent award was “Recognized for Academic Excellence” by the Texas Education Agency for the 2005-06 school year.
We have high expectations for all our students. We invite you to see our school's website for more information.
