Principal's Message

  • Welcome to Winifred Pifer Elementary School!

    The Winifred Pifer teachers and staff are committed to supporting student success for all students from preschool through fifth grade.  We look forward to working with you and your student as we lay the foundation in elementary school for the years to come.  We are committed to providing all students with high quality, challenging instruction in core academic areas, visual and performing arts, and physical education while addressing their social and emotional needs in a safe and engaging environment.  It is our goal that all students have the opportunity to realize their full potential as confident, successful students. 

    It is a pleasure to begin the 2019-2020 school year in my second year as the Winifred Pifer principal.  I have served children and families in education for over 20 years as a teacher, District English Learner Coordinator, and most recently as the Guidance Specialist at Pat Butler Elementary.  The north county has been my home for most of my life and I feel lucky to be able to raise my two young daughters here as well. My experience in education combined with my perspective as a parent guides my actions to ensure that your child feels welcome, successful, and included in our Pifer Family.  

    I look forward to meeting you, working with you and your children, and welcoming you to the Pifer Panther family.  Please stop by the office anytime you need assistance or just to say hello!


    Megen Guffey, M.A.Ed.
