Meet the Principal

A Message From Our Principal

Principal Butson and familyWelcome Frances Brandon-Pickett Elementary Parents and Guardians,

I feel absolutely thrilled to be the principal at FBPE. The Queen Creek Unified School District stands committed to being the very best in the state, and in my short time here this has become apparent. It is the goal of our staff to provide a rigorous and enjoyable learning experience for every student that walks through our doors. You will not find a more dedicated or hardworking group of educators anywhere! 

Personally, I am about to embark on my fourth year in administration and my sixteenth in education. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as your child’s principal. It is my plan to continue the high standard of excellence that already exists. I commit to providing a safe and positive learning environment for students and a welcoming community for you. 

I encourage each of you to become involved and a part of the Pickett family. My door is always open, and I am excited to meet each and every one of you. Together, we can make the very best elementary school experience for your child. 

Thank you for trusting my staff and I with your child’s education. Go Mustangs!
