Dear Parents,

As each year begins, I am more excited than ever to continue our success. As principal, I hope to provide you each with our vision and clear direction as committed partners at Poplar Grove Elementary. It is an incredible joy to be surrounded by the unbelievable talents, knowledge, and passion our teachers possess, and it is inspiring to watch them at work in the classroom. What an honor it is to have the opportunity to serve such an exemplary group of individuals!

We know that educating a child is a team effort between educators and parents. Parents at Poplar Grove Elementary are a vital part of our success! The countless volunteer hours you provide ensure our students have the best elementary experience possible. Our PTO sponsors a number of events throughout the year, and I encourage you to get involved. Working together, we can create an elementary campus environment that offers a shared vision, supports student growth, celebrates successes, is rooted in traditions, and consistently encourages the joy of learning.

Please take a moment to read this parent handbook. It has been created to give information concerning our school, district, and state as well as federal policies and guidelines. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school office. I look forward to a great year as we embark on a new journey of learning together!
