A message from the principal.

Dear Pack,

As we enter this month of what many deem as a month of thankfulness or gratitude, I too wish to express my blessing of working at Tuscarora. This year has brought about many changes for myself and my family, including that of my transfer to Frederick County and Tuscarora. I continue to feel grateful that my path brought me here, surrounded by many wonderful educators, some pretty amazing students and such a caring community.


I recognize the re-entry to school with everyone in person this fall has brought about a lot of feelings, but the one thing I have found most rewarding since opening our doors on Wednesday, August 18, is the look excitement, happiness, and joy from our students. It has been such a blessing to have everyone back in the building “doing” school the way we have for so long. We look forward to more of the returning to normal opportunities this month with our Family Literacy Night on Thursday, November 18 and then next month with our December PTA meeting held at Tuscarora on Wednesday, December 1.


As we enter this month of thanks and gratitude, I encourage each of us to pause and reflect on those things that bring joy to our lives.


Better together,

Carrie Zimmerman
