Letter from the Principal

August 8, 2016
Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am excited to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year! Hopefully, the summer has provided you with many memorable opportunities to spend time with family and friends. It continues to be an honor and privilege to serve as the principal of such a dynamic student centered learning community. As we prepare for another year filled with learning opportunities, I am reminded that the beginning of school is truly a special time. I am looking forward to partnering with you as we continue to nurture the ongoing development of your child. Fortunately, our school continues to be a team of exceptionally talented and committed teaching staff that is anchored by a support staff and Board of Education.

I invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our PTO/Booster Club, or attending and supporting school events. Research clearly supports that when parents/guardians participate and are involved in their child’s education, there is greater likelihood of academic success for the child.

I truly believe that communication is the key to a successful educational experience. Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children at Jonesboro Elementary School. Education continues to be a partnership between the school, students, parents/guardians and community. I thank you in advance for your commitment to Jonesboro Elementary School and look forward to another productive year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
