Welcome to Thomas Crossroads Elementary!
Vision / MissionStatement: “As a Team, We Ensure the Success of Each Student”
Dear Family members, we have embarked upon another wonderful school year. The beginning of a new school year is very exciting. The children are excited about going to the next grade, seeing friends, parents are excited to have the children to start school again. Teachers are excited to prepare for their new class. Administrators are excited to implement new ideas to help students and teachers learn at their highest ability level.
We have new family members that have joined our family. I would like to welcome new teachers: Ms. Christen Hood (1st), Ms. Anna Kate Sullivan (1st), Mrs. Shavonnda Teagle (3rd), Dr. Bynghum Askew (5th), Mrs. Christina Luke (Resource) Mrs. Beverly Reichman (Resource), Mrs. Dianne Cormier (Resource TA), Ms. Allyson Crider (Resource TA), Mrs. Nicole Fuller (Art teacher). We are happy and excited to have them join us.
Learning can be exciting, but can bring challenges also. Wikipedia defines Learning as “the act of acquiring new, or modifying and reinforcing, existing knowledge, behaviors, skills, values, or preferences and may involve synthesizing different types of information”. Our theme for the coming year is, “TCE - The Gateway to Digital Learning”. The 2015-2016 school year will be an even better year than last. We will continue to focus on Reading CAFÉ’ with a greater focus in the area of mathematics and using more technology to better prepare our children of this digital age. Even more exciting is each teacher will have a Google Chromebook and we will be using the technology as often as possible. We are a learning community striving as a TEAM (Motto: Together Everyone Achieves More) to Ensure the Success of Each Student.
As “The Gateway to Digital Learning”, we promise to “Ensure the Success of Each Student”. As a TEAM, we will work together to become problem solvers. As a TEAM, we will work together to find solutions to challenging dilemmas that may arise. And as a TEAM, we will ensure that TCE is “The Gateway to Digital Learning” for educating and preparing your children for their future endeavors. As TCE is “The Gateway to Digital Learning”, our children will achieve at their highest potential.
Thank you in advance for all that you will do to make TCE “The Gateway to Digital Learning” fun, enriching, and rewarding for everyone.
Dr. Fate R. Simmons
