A Message from the Principal

Dear Jag Families,


We are so excited to welcome you and your Jags back to school!! We have been working hard all summer to prepare for the best year yet!


Nearly all forms were completed online this year, but there will be a few important forms coming home with students on the first day. Please fill those out quickly and return the next school day. These are forms that are important to the safety and welfare of your student(s).


We are thrilled for Southside Elementary, as they will be opening the doors to their new campus this year. We are very thankful for your patience as we provided a temporary home for them over the last six years. The temporary campus will be broken down and moved over the next semester. We are hopeful that our playground will be back to its original location by the end of the school year.


Meet the Teacher is scheduled for Monday, August 8th from 1:00-3:00pm for all 1st - 5th grade students. Emails will be going out Monday morning at 9am with teacher assignments and staff member will have class lists when you arrive. We will also have tables set up in the cafeteria to meet bus drivers, get your carpool tags, spirit shirt sizing, fee payments (online only - no cash accepted), VIP sign up, and registration assistance. We look forward to seeing you!


Welcome back!!


Lauren Kennedy, principal
