Principal's Office


I would like to welcome back all Tracy Elementary Students and Parents. We have several new students and a couple new staff members this year. We look forward to the opportunity of being a part of your child’s education.

 

Last year we were talking about COVID everyday!!  Hopefully this year will be back to as normal as possible.  As of this writing, this is the plan.  No masks!  Breakfast back in the lunchroom in the morning.  We want the kids to be able to get back to having a normal Elementary experience.  I do anticipate that there will be some guidelines coming out regarding quarantines or some other limitations, but I feel school will look a lot more like 2019 than 2020-21. 

 

We have been having some work done in the Elementary school. Our main bathrooms (across from the 1st grade) are being completely remodeled.  This started the week school got out and will be finished shortly before school starts.  This along with the lockers, playground additions, and gym overhaul, really help this building look like new.  We have also transformed one hallway into a SMART hallway.  Our younger students do SMART activities in the classroom, but this will allow a larger area to do some of the large motor functions.  These changes along with all of our curriculum changes (Benchmark Literacy-Reading, Envisions-Math, Learn-ing.com-Technology) and our change to Standards Based Grading over the past couple of years are all aimed at providing the best education for your children.

 

One of the biggest indicators of the success of children academically, is the level of parent involvement in their education. Parents remain the main educator in their children’s lives. We strive to work together with you to create the best base of knowledge to grow upon. Please check with your child daily on what they did at school, and whether they have material to read or work on at home.

 

At TAES, we strive to develop the whole child. We believe that Character Education is an important factor in developing our students. Every Friday, students will be spending an hour talking about different character count traits.

 

Communication between home and school is necessary to create the best learning environment for your children. Please email or contact the teacher or office with any questions throughout the year.

 

Thank you for entrusting us with your child’s education! Looking forward to a great year!
