Principal’s Message

Bryan Perez

Anthon Family and Friends,

It is my great pleasure as the new principal to greet you to the 2017-2018 school year at Anthon Elementary! 

I began my educational journey back in Salem, Oregon where I spent my first fourteen years of life as a student who attended a small 3 room, rural school. My long path took me from Oregon all the way to the Rio Grande Valley, where I attended high school and then college at the University of Texas-Pan American. After several years in the business world, I knew my heart was in education, and my next and last stop was in Uvalde, TX.

I began the greatest chapters of my life when I joined Uvalde CISD in 2007 as a Pre-Kinder teacher.  I was blessed to work 8 years with the youngest students and then had the great opportunity to follow my kids to Anthon when I became the Assistant Principal for the 2015-2016 year. I am so grateful to begin the next step in serving our students and community as the Principal of Anthon!

As I begin the next phase of service, I invite you to join my staff and me in what we call the “20/20 Vision.”  This is a vision with a clear focus on immediately increasing the effectiveness of instruction and refining our school processes to ensure Anthon Elementary is the premiere choice for elementary education in Uvalde County. We will accomplish this by targeting the following:

·       Rigorous instruction for all students with the goal of creating responsible, productive citizens that will thrive in in college and beyond,

·       Increased opportunities for family involvement within our school,

·       And support for our staff that enables continuous opportunities for professional growth to ensure the delivery of the most current and effective teaching strategies.

I know this will be an arduous journey, but I am confident it will be one that results in complete success for all our students. There is no margin for error, nor time to waste; I believe this is not only our job, it is our responsibility. I open my door and extend my hand to ask that you share in making this vision an absolute for all our children.


Welcome to the new Anthon Elementary: Focused Intensity. Endless Opportunity.


Bryan J. Perez,

YOUR Anthon Principal
