The Newsletter for Tigerville Elementary- October Edition

From the Principal's Desk

We have had a great start to the 2014-15 school year! I am enjoying being in classrooms and seeing all of the wonderful learning that is taking place. We are excited to begin the Cliffs’ Resident Outreach (CRO) volunteer program in grades K5-3rd grade. They will work with small groups of students as well as individual students.

I would like to invite you to join your child for lunch one day. We always enjoy seeing our families during this time.

If you have any questions or concerns that I can help you with, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

D. Jackson
