Smoke Signals: Final Edition

May 27-31

Happy Summer!

Dear Shackelford family,

As this school year comes to an end, so does my tenure with Shackelford Elementary. I have enjoyed being your principal for the past 3 years and know that our staff and students are on track for continued success in the future!

I am very proud of the work we have done and the things our team has accomplished. Over the summer you can expect to see more work being done such as a new playground area, new stage curtains, and paint in the hallways. It is exciting to know that students will come back to a refreshed and updated campus!

Staff, parents, and families, thank you for your support during my time as principal. I value the relationships we have made and continue to want nothing but the best for our Shackelford Braves! Even though my position is changing to Associate Director of Human Resources, I will not be far away!

I wish you all a wonderful summer with your families! Keep our Braves reading all summer long!

Keep aiming high and dreaming big,
