Welcome Back To School!

Dear Parents and Guardians:

Welcome to Shirley Lanham Elementary School. We are proud of our dedicated, experienced staff and enthusiastic learners!

As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for all our students. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.

Education is a shared responsibility. It is important for us to keep open lines of communication between home and school. We must work as a team to guide your child(ren) toward success! This is accomplished by communicating with your child’s teacher, attending school functions and assisting your child in understanding the importance of education and cooperation. You, as the parent, are a valuable component of your child’s education.

With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Shirley LHES. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the PTO, special event participation, or member of one of our school communities, you are encouraged to be involved! Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.

It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. Up-to-date and additional information will be sent to you though the weekly “Crusader News” and will appear on our school web page. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.

Sincerely,
Sharon L. Carter
Principal


Lanham ES
