Welcome to the 2019-2020 academic year. Words do not adequately express how excited I am to continue being part of the Laurel Elementary family. I look forward to another wonderful and productive school year with you and your children.
I desire to maintain a safe and happy learning environment for our students. The faculty, staff, and I are geared up and ready to work with the students, parents, and guardians of this community. While public education is our calling, there is another essential ingredient in the development of our young humans-YOU! Parent/guardian involvement is critical in educating today’s children. Becoming an active member of your student’s education is an investment that will pay off for many years to come.
Our staff is highly qualified and works hard to create rigorous and appropriate learning opportunities for the students. As the principal, I will work hard to make sure the school is a safe and welcoming learning environment. As the parent/guardian, I ask that you be involved daily in your child’s education by talking with him or her about the day, going through the communication binder and encouraging reading outside of school. Parents, guardians, and grandparents are always welcome at Laurel Elementary. We have a large variety of opportunities for you to volunteer your time and energy, and we hope you will participate in a variety of class and school-wide activities.
Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or me with any questions, suggestions, or concerns you may have related to your student. As we work to improve our school, your input is valuable to us. You may contact me by phone or email at 423-727-2685 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for the opportunity to work with your child and family.
