Tarawa Terrace ES: Principals Corner

Welcome to Tarawa Terrace Elementary School

I would like to take this opportunity to officially welcome you to our school. Tarawa Terrace (TT) is a place where great things happen for kids. 

The staff of this school works diligently to stay abreast of the most progressive teaching practices in order to address the educational needs of each student. Educating the total child at TT means helping every child become informed and caring stewards of their world. We strive to impart a global awareness by helping our students think critically and access information. These are skills that a 21st Century citizenry must possess in order to achieve the American Dream in this age of technology and rapid change. This idea is embodied in our mission statement- "TT Elementary School develops lifelong learners and responsible citizens who make their community a better place."  

The staff of TT takes great pride in building relationships and partnerships with parents for the purpose of realizing our mission. We, here at TT, recognize the special challenges faced by the families of those who serve our country in the armed forces. There are many services and programs offered to our students to help meet the unique needs of our population. Should you wish to know more about any of our instructional programs, please feel free to contact the school anytime.   

As the instructional leader of TT, my door is always open to our community stakeholders. Please feel free to come by our school and visit or volunteer as time permits.
