Principal's Corner

Welcome Letter

Dear Tucker family,

WELCOME to Tucker Elementary School! Our mission for the 2017-2018 school year focuses on “STUDENT LEADERSHIP”. Our focus on STUDENT LEADERSHIP will strive to create “WIN-WIN” situations for our students as we emphasize the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People in our daily work and play.

We encourage you to check out from the library or purchase the book: The 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey to learn more about our 7 habits work. Check out for more information too. There is a “parent” link that you will enjoy.

It is an honor and privilege to work with your child and our community. This begins my sixteenth year as the principal of Tucker Elementary School. Working with the students, staff, and families at Tucker Elementary School is a job I absolutely love!

We want to provide you with access to your child’s teacher as often as needed. Feel free to email, call, or set up a conference at any time during the school year. This year, each teacher has his/her own phone extension number. You can contact your child’s teacher directly by dialing 988-6278, pressing 1, and then entering the teacher’s 5 digit phone extension. This allows you to leave a voice message that will be sent directly to the teacher. Each teacher will make available his/her email address and phone extension to you.

TES wants to make sure you stay informed and involved in your child’s education. We send home student folders on Thursday of each week. You can also “like” us on Facebook at: Tucker Elementary School. We often post information that will be helpful as you plan your week.

Thanks for helping us to make 2017-2018 a year of STUDENT LEADERSHIP and learning! I believe Tucker families truly care about our school and our success. I look forward to spending time with your child and your family.

With joy,

Dr. Kim Halstead
