Principal's Message

WELCOME TO THE 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR

 

Welcome to the Clegg Elementary School Family!  The staff and I are looking forward to working with you and your children this year. I am very excited to be the Principal at Clegg Elementary School. We will strive to continue to provide an exciting and rewarding educational program for each and every child here at Clegg School. 

We are all very excited about moving into our fifth year as a STEAM Magnet School.  STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.  The program focuses on problem based learning through the integration of all subjects.  It promotes learning through activities, experiments and projects.  Students are challenged to think critically and develop skills that they will carry with them long after they leave Clegg Elementary.  I am very excited about the opportunities this has brought, and will bring for our students.  This program is offered to all students enrolled at Clegg K-5. 

Parents will continue to be informed of their child’s achievement through parent/teacher conferences, progress reports, and report cards.  At any time during the school year parents may request information regarding their child’s progress. Please note the following parent/teacher conference dates:

Trimester #1-              October 16-20, 2017

Trimester #2-              March 22-23, 2018 for “At Risk Students”

Our goal is to encourage as many parents possible to become involved with our School Site Council, PTA, and to volunteer either in or outside of the classroom. As you know, it takes a team of parents, teachers, and administrators to ensure the academic success of your child.  Make sure to let your teacher or the office know if you are interested in volunteering on campus.

 I am looking forward to seeing and working with all of you this school year.

Sincerely,

John Staggs

Principal
