Principal's Message


    Natalie Clement

    Mrs. Natalie Clement, Principal




    Welcome to Peralta Trail Elementary School! 

    I am thrilled to be serving again this year as the principal of the Peralta Trail team. This is my fifth year in Arizona and my twelfth as an elementary school principal. 

    My family and I love this area and our community. We love the outdoors and enjoy camping, jeeping, and hiking the Superstitions. My husband is a chiropractor with a local practice, and we have four children ranging in age from 16-23. We live here, work here and play here!

    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.
