Paul Road Administration

    Peter Hens 
    Principal: Mr. Peter J Hens 

    Mr. Hens began his work at Paul Road School in 2005. He joined Gates Chili from serving as principal of River Elementary School  on Long Island for eight years.  

    Prior to his work as a principal, Mr. Hens worked as a English teacher in the Hornell City School District and was  also a Dean of Students in Wheatland-Chili. 
    Mr. Hens is hard-pressed to pick just one experience or moment that is his favorite about Paul Road, but he does cite the wonderful parent involvement and the respectful and responsible nature of the students as points of pride for him.
    "Paul Road Panthers embody the core values of the Spartan Way.  They are generous, helpful to adults and their peers, and they are NEVER  at a loss to give a hug or a smile to those in our school community."
    Mr. Hens is trilled to begin the new school year, alongside newly appointed assistant principal, Mrs. Kim Doty.
