August 11, 2017

 Dear Parents and Guardians,

As Principal of Jonesboro Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year.  We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning.  It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected and a part of our Jonesboro Elementary School family.  Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities preparing them for high school and beyond.  At Jonesboro Elementary School, we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning.  Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and set goals for growth and improvement.  We believe that all students should graduate from Jonesboro Elementary School with the tools necessary to excel in their high school career.

The scope and magnitude of our responsibilities to our students, their parents and the community are infinite.  Our words, actions and inactions have a profound impact on the lives we are responsible for.   It is imperative that we offer nothing less than our best every day to succeed in providing everything we can in making a difference.  Jonesboro Elementary School is committed to providing the best curriculum resources, updating facilities and maintaining a clean learning environment in order to promote a productive learning environment for all students.

Again, I welcome you back for another great year at Jonesboro Elementary School.  I am honored to serve as the principal of Jonesboro Elementary School.  It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.  If I can be of assistance as the year goes by, please feel free to contact me at 618-833-5148 or at tstark@jonesboro43.com

 

 Sincerely,

 

 

Tom Stark
