Principal's Message

Fall greetings to our THE Families!
When I think of November, I think of the many things I am grateful for. This year, I am so grateful to have students back in the building!  The students are doing a wonderful job adapting to the safety protocols. Thank you, parents, for remembering to send your child with their mask and the daily attestation.  Also, a reminder, that students are engaged with their teacher (live or virtually) for only part of the school day.  Students are required to be completing the daily assignments for the remainder of the day.  If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.
At THE, we are so thankful for our Veteran's!  Our Veteran's Day assembly is by far my favorite assembly of the year.  While we were not able to have our assembly this year due to COVID, we want all of our veterans to know how much they are appreciated.
This month’s character trait is leadership.  I am grateful for the many outstanding students who demonstrate great leadership skills every day, encouraging others to do their very best.  Our fifth grade leadership group is doing some amazing things this year, and look forward to seeing more great things to come from those students.
Finally, I am so grateful for our students, teachers, and parents.  Teaching and learning in our new environment, whether it is in-person or virtual, is very difficult!  Teachers are continually looking for effective strategies to keep students engaged in their learning, and I know the struggle parents are facing at home is real.  Together we can do it.  If you are having tech issues, please contact our tech department, or the office.  Also, if you have questions or concerns, contact your child's teacher. 

Thank you for the patience, grace, and support you have given us during the time.  We will continue to serve our students through all of the changes that come our way.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns (573-7820).  We are here to help!  
Take care and be well!
Tami Scrivner
