Happy New Year, Pintlala Family!

I pray that your holidays were wonderful and that you had an opportunity to spend time with your families! Thank you so much for the many cards, gifts, and words of encouragement!

As this 2nd quarter begins, please support our teachers by reminding your children of the importance of education. Our focus for the next several months will be to intensify instruction and development of skills in an effort to ensure all students will be prepared to take state assessments in the spring. Please stress to your children the significance of staying focused in the classroom! Student behavior should not interfere with the classroom learning environment. Our teachers are working hard to ensure all students are prepared to meet and exceed district and state goals and expectations.

Please continue to support our efforts by working with your children at home by reading nightly and studying math facts.

Wishing you amazing blessings in 2023!

Dr. Angela Kornegay Sampson, Principal
