• Hello Panda Families!

    My name is Brendan Elkins and I am very excited and honored to be the new assistant principal at Piney Grove. Prior to pursuing a degree in school administration, I taught Language Arts for six years at Southeast Middle School and served one year as a principal intern at Caleb’s Creek Elementary. I completed my undergraduate degree in Middle Grades Education at UNC Wilmington, and earned my graduate degree in School Administration as a North Carolina Principal Fellow through UNC Chapel Hill. I look forward to working with each family, the Panda community, and our wonderful staff as we strive to create a stellar learning environment that helps all of our children grow.

    Outside of school, I love spending time with my amazing wife, Donnay, and our curious beagle, Trask. I enjoy cheering for the Carolina Panthers, playing golf, and traveling just about anywhere!

    If for any reason you should have a question or concern with which I can help, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you for supporting your child’s education and I look forward to a wonderful school year.
