Principal’s Message

Dear Pemberton Families,

On behalf of our staff, I would like to welcome you to the Pemberton theater where we are “Setting the Stage for Success” as our 2022-2023 school theme.  Our students will be actors and stage crew under the direction of our teachers in learning!  We will keep our Pemberton traditions and add a few new exciting celebrations this year!

I feel so fortunate to have been chosen as your partner in learning for the upcoming school year as I embark on my first year as principal with the Pemberton Penguins.  I know that Dr. Koontz will be missed, and we wish him the best of luck as he moves into his new role.  Through my years in education starting in a neighboring county and coming to Henrico in 2018, I have had a diverse background and range of experiences that will help me to support our students, teachers, and families.

As families of our Pemberton Penguins, you are the most important part of completing the strong connection your child will have with our school.  Thank you in advance for everything you will do to help make your child’s school experience the very best it can be, in every way.  If you are looking for ways to support our school, please consider joining our wonderful PTA who provides so many resources for our teachers and staff!  Ask your child what they do at school each evening, and please keep in communication with our teachers if you have any questions about your child’s school day.

Please also don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email or set up an appointment to come meet with me if you have any compliments, questions, or concerns about Pemberton and your child’s learning.

Your partner in learning,

Lianna Moss-Everhart, Ph.D.
