Welcome to Thomas Crossroads Elementary!
Vision / MissionStatement: “As a Team, We Ensure the Success of Each Student”
I hope you have enjoyed your summer and you are ready to start a new year. Please join me in welcoming our new family members: Ms. Renee Rich (Media Specialist), Ms. Angelia Banks (4th grade teacher), Ms. Marie Wallace (1st grade teacher), Ms. Judy Griffin (School Nurse), Mr. Timothy Brown (Autism TA), Ms. Denise Borders (Autism TA), Ms. Allie Scott (Technology Specialist), and Dr. Jessica Tranquilo (School Psychologist). We look forward to working with our new family members. While we will miss our staff members who left TCE, I would like to take this time to thank all of them for all of their hard work and dedication they provided for everyone at Thomas Crossroads for so many years. Thank you and we wish you great success in your future endeavors.
Our Theme this year is, “Individualizing Digital Learning.” As we “Individualize Digital Learning,” we promise to “Ensure the Success of Each Student.” As a TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More) , 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 provides an “Individualizing Digital Learning” environment for educating and preparing our children for their future endeavors. As TCE strives to “Individualize Digital Learning,” our goal is for all of our children to strive to achieve their highest potential.
As I think about the wonderful things we are about to embark on at Thomas Crossroads, I get really excited. It is with this great excitement that I am able to announce that all of our 3rd through 5th grade students have received their own personal chromebook that they will use throughout their school years at TCE. As we know through our experience with technology, it will take us a little time to learn the many functions the chromebooks will be able to do. Although it may take the adults a little longer to grasp the concepts, the children will figure it out quickly. Not only will the teachers be educating the students, I believe the students will be able to become educators and provide support for teachers and parents.
We will be meeting the individualized digital learning needs of our K-2nd grade students by using over 75 chromebooks that we obtained last year for the students to use. They will not be able to take them home, but they will have access to them when they are at school.
Thank you in advance for all that you will do to make TCE “Individualizing Digital Learning” fun, enriching, and rewarding for everyone.
