    Our school is Pershing Elementary and we LOVE it ! I was raised in a small town w/ small school system and raised my 2 grown kids there . i had already heard things about Pershing and when my granson came to live w/ me last year I was thrilled when they told me he would be enrolled in Pershing . everyone always has a smile . My grandson had been attending a very large elementary in TPS and was having all kinds of problems the class rooms r so crowded do to so many schools being closed down . but at pershing the only problem we have had is him talking to much ! He will be in the 4th grade this year and I am looking forward to another great school year ! LETS HERE FOR THE SMALL SHOOLS !!!! ( ( (
