Greetings Bulldog Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that I join Upper Pointe Coupee Elementary as your new Principal. I look forward to partnering with you to ensure all children are celebrated and supported. Together, we will ensure that we maintain our tradition of excellence and community that makes UPCE such a special place.

As an educator, I am driven by the individual success and growth of every student. I have devoted my career to educating, inspiring, and advocating for students, both as a classroom teacher and as an administrator. I am excited to bring my passion, enthusiasm, and experience to cultivate the unique educational programs that UPCE has to offer. Above all, I am excited to observe, listen, learn, and understand what makes UPCE thrive.

At the heart of my practice is building strong relationships with the staff, students, and families I serve. I look forward to listening to your ideas and vision for our school and collaborating with each of you to support our sense of community here at Upper Pointe Coupee Elementary. As your principal, I will strive to ensure that all families feel welcome and connected to our school family. Please be on the lookout for upcoming Principal Chats and family events, but also know that I would love to hear from you at any time.

We are Bulldog Strong! We are Leaders!

Carolyn H. Wells, M.Ed.
