“Poplar Road.... The Road to Success”



Dear Parents,


Summer is sizzling past us quickly! Believe it or not, we are getting very excited to see our students head back to the classrooms with a fierce focus on academics!  Our "Meet the Teacher" will be on Wednesday, August 3rd from 5pm to 7pm (this is different than other schools in the county - we had a lot of favorable feedback when we held this in the evening a few years ago).  Postcards will not be sent to your homes this year.  Class Rosters will be posted at the beginning of the grade level hallway during "Meet the Teacher." 


Remember that Poplar Road is a Title I School. We love to get our parents input on our Title I Plan and Budget.  A draft of our Title I Plan is on this website.  Changes for the 2016-2017 school year are included based on parent surveys and input meetings. If you have any suggestions, please email them to me at


We are always trying to make sure we have the best ways to communicate with our learning community.
