​Parent Letter

​Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year. I am very excited about the upcoming school year at Poplar Springs. Our Faculty and Staff are committed to excellence, and we believe that our students deserve the very best in educational practices. Our hope is that we can work cooperatively with you to provide our students with positive learning experiences. PSES students will embark on a journey as learners today and leaders tomorrow.

The mission of Poplar Springs Elementary School is to provide a challenging and nurturing environment where all children are empowered to develop their unique talents. All students will become powerful thinkers, effective collaborators, and compassionate contributors in their community in preparation for success in a globally competitive society.

We will continue to be a Title I school this school year. Title I is a federal program that provides money to our school to purchase additional instructional supplies and to provide additional instruction to students.
Parent involvement is an integral part of our Title I program that provides activities for our parents and students throughout the school year. We look forward to seeing you at our parent involvement activities. We hope that you can find time from your busy schedule to take advantage of these opportunities for your family.

As a parent of a child in a Title I School, you have the right to participate in the decision making process. You are invited to participate on the School Improvement Team, as well as work with the staff to make decisions regarding the school’s School Improvement Plan and Parent Involvement Policy. The success of our school is largely attributed to the support we have received from parents and families.
This handbook is being provided to help students and parents become familiar with school rules, regulations, and policies.  Please read the handbook carefully and discuss its contents with your child, then sign the handbook form and return it to your child’s teacher.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call or come by the school.

I look forward to this school year and the privilege of working with your child. I believe that open communication is the key to a successful school and that TOGETHER we can make Poplar Springs Elementary the best it can be!
