Dear Shoal Creek Families: 

Welcome back to school! I am very excited about the school year that is about to begin. Whether you will be dropping your child off at Shoal Creek Elementary for the first day of kindergarten or you are a veteran parent of a school-aged child, the start of a new school year is always a time filled with excitement. Our focus is to provide each child with new challenges that will result in a rewarding school experience. We want your child to be happy and successful at Shoal Creek, and you play a key role. That role is to continually show interest in, and to support, your child. A child who knows his or her family is interested in and supports school programs and staff, will almost always enjoy greater success, and will have fewer problems in school. 

I continue to be inspired by the dedicated staff and families in this community, and look forward to getting to know our new team members. Shoal Creek is a school where students are supported and encouraged to grow in all areas- academically, socially and emotionally. I am fortunate to be a part of this high-quality learning community, and I speak on behalf of the entire staff when I say we are excited to have each of you as part of our school community. It takes all of us to help each and every child reach his/her potential, and we look forward to sharing in your child's learning experiences. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
6) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college

Please consider joining our school volunteer program as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations. We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:

1) Teacher-led instructional support, usually in the classroom
2) Reading with children who need extra help
3) School-wide events
4) Student recognition events
5) Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers

Working together we will have a wonderful year filled with learning, lifelong relationships and the joys of success and accomplishment. I look forward to meeting each of you, and to working with you and your children throughout the year. 

Warm Regards, 

Mrs. Patrice Graham, Principal
