Closeup of Andrew Edwards

A Welcome from Principal, Andy Edwards

I am honored to serve the 2022-2023 school year as the principal of Southaven Elementary. I have been in DeSoto County since 2008 and with my wife & 3 children I am excited to pour myself into this year, partnering with you to reach our students and see them grow. 

Our staff at Southaven Elementary will work alongside you to provide a safe and positive learning environment as we work toward a growth mindset & will work hard to provide an educational experience that will focus on academic, social, and emotional growth. 

Our mission is to develop lifelong learners in an environment that promotes academic excellence. We believe to accomplish this mission, we must be focused on creating and cultivating positive relationships with students, parents, and the community of Southaven. 

Our expectations will be high as we continue “Charging Forward”! 

Mr. Andy Edwards,
