Principal's Message

    Mrs. Natalie Clement, Principal




    Welcome to Peralta Trail Elementary School!  

                                I am blessed to be serving as the principal of this amazing team!  I love working with the staff, students, parents and community here in Bobcat country!  This school year marks 7 years at Peralta Trail Elementary, 14 as an elementary school principal, and 21 as a public school educator.


                               My family and I live, work and play here in the local community.  We enjoy spending time outdoors and unwind by camping, jeeping, and hiking the Superstitions. My husband is a chiropractor with a local practice, and we have four children ranging in age from 18-25.


                              As educators, our charge is to equip students with the skills needed to be leaders in our society. At Peralta Trail Elementary School (PTES) we foster academic excellence by creating a learning environment centered on children, directed by teachers, and supported by home and community that provides for all students to gain the knowledge and skills to grow, respect, overcome, work and lead. Together parents, teachers, support staff, and community members will challenge our students to think critically, communicate clearly, collaborate effectively, and embrace creativity. We are preparing many of them for careers that do not yet exist. PTES empowers the next generation of leaders to make a positive impact in the world. It is my honor to serve this community by preparing the leaders of tomorrow.
