The Mildred B. Poole Elementary School is scheduled to open for the
2017-2018 school year. We are looking forward to welcoming all students,
parents, and staff to this new state of the art, 21st Century
On behalf of the Community Superintendent, the Fort Bragg School Board, School Administrators, teachers and support staff, I welcome you to the Poole Elementary School Community. I am a retired Chief Warrant Officer (Army), a military spouse and my father completed over 20 years of military service so I am also a "Military Brat." Additionally, I attended both DoDDs and DoDEA –America schools. I hold a Doctorate Degree in Educational Leadership with a concentration in curriculum and Instruction. My experience in education spans more than two decades.
I hope all of you will participate in the Poole Elementary School Open House scheduled Friday, August 25, 2017 from 3:30-5:30p.m. Open House is planned to give you and your children a brief opportunity to meet the teachers and see our amazing school! Please adhere to the Open House schedule.
At Open House, we will provide information about bus transportation, as well as overall arrival and dismissal. Please be reminded that Poole Elementary School is not a walking school. All students will be bus riders or car riders. Poole PTA will set up a table for memberships and spirit wear purchases. If you are unable to attend the Open House, this information will be sent home with students the first day of school.
The first full day of school for kindergarten students is Tuesday, August 29, 2017. School hours are 8:20 a.m. – 2:50 p.m. on every day except Wednesday. Dismissal is at 1:55 p.m. every Wednesday. Breakfast and lunch are served each day. Information regarding breakfast and lunch will be shared during Kindergarten orientation. Pre-Kindergarten home visits will be scheduled by your child's assigned teacher and will begin on Monday, August 28th.
Please ensure that your child does not arrive at school before 8:10 a.m. unless he or she is participating in the breakfast program. Students who eat breakfast should not arrive at school before 7:45 a.m. There are no adults available to supervise students before these times.
We all anticipate an excellent school year and I personally look forward to getting acquainted with you and your child(ren). Welcome again to the Poole Elementary School Community!
