Ami Payne - Elementary Principal

Hello everyone,

I am so excited to have this opportunity to lead the Fort Towson Elementary through another academically successful year.  Along with the faculty and staff, I would like to personally welcome you to Fort Towson Elementary.  Fort Towson is committed to providing a safe, caring, and challenging educational environment that promotes learning and achievement for all students. I do believe that Fort Towson Elementary remains on track to do wonderful things.

We have taken, and will continue to take, giant steps to help us grow from good to great. We believe in using creativity, ingenuity, and a sense of urgency in our commitment to meeting and addressing our student’s unique needs.

A vital component of our school is the support of our parents and community members. Fort Towson Elementary is a school of excellence because of all the great people involved in our school.  Fort Towson Elementary has such a great group of students with bright futures that are supported by their parent, guardians, and community. Along with teachers who have every individual students best interest at heart and are dedicated to providing a quality education to those students.

As educators our goal is to work as a team with parents/guardians to ensure that we provide these students with the knowledge, skills, and character to become lifelong learners, productive contributing members of society, and respectful, responsible members of our community.

We want to invite you to visit our school and to become involved with us here at Fort Towson Elementary. We sincerely believe that educating students is a team effort… and that, together, we can make a positive difference in your child’s life.

Thanks you so much.
