Principal's Corner

Welcome to Sollars ES

Dear Sollars Students, Parents and Community Members,

Welcome to the Sollars Elementary School community! We are a school of excellence composed of hard-working, kind and deep-thinking students; involved, supportive and engaged parents; and highly qualified, dedicated and caring teachers. Together, we work together to make Sollars Elementary School a special place.

During School Year 2018-2019 we established our Positive Behavior Support program, with our students earning recognition on a monthly basis for demonstrating excellence in several key character traits.  Our counselors reinforced lessons each month emphasizing positive character traits, as well.  We also fully implemented our Professional Learning Community collaborative model with our teachers and staff.  Each team of teachers meets on a weekly basis to examine curriculum and learning data, then plan lessons and next steps for each student, in order to ensure accelerated academic growth.

School 2019-2020 will see our school build upon the successes of last school year.  In addition to the tailored instruction students receive in the positive classroom environments at our school, students will also benefit from targeted intervention and acceleration opportunities throughout the school year.  Sollars teachers and staff want the absolute best for each student; as a result, our team will offer a variety of innovative learning activities during the school day, as well as exciting opportunities and clubs after school, as well.

Please be sure to reach out to your child’s teacher to find out ways that you can help in the classroom or at home.  Additionally, feel free to stop by our main office or Parent Center to discuss avenues that your efforts can help our school continue to provide the best learning environment for our students.

Thank you very much for your positive partnership.

Sincerely,

Patrick Buckley

Principal, Sollars Elementary School
