I want to officially welcome everyone back, and I hope that you had a wonderful summer. We are looking forward to an exciting and exhilarating 2018-2019 school year. For those of you who are new to our school, the Tiger Nation wants you to know that you are coming to an absolutely wonderful place. Our teachers and staff are passionate, caring, hardworking, and always learning something new for the benefit of your children. We are a driven group of people who take learning seriously while also making personal connections that help our kids to succeed.
I am excited to announce that we have a new Assistant Principal added to our staff this year. Mrs. Tanya Elliott will serve as an Assistant Principal for the elementary schools. She comes to Colonial Heights with a passion for education but more importantly, a love for kids. We are looking forward to working with Mrs. Elliott and showing her it is a great time to be a Tussing Tiger.
We are thrilled at the opportunity to get to know our new Tigers and seeing our returning Tigers. We also believe that building strong relationships between home and school is a key factor in increasing student achievement. As an administrative staff, our doors are always open, and we welcome your input. We strongly believe that parental involvement is an essential component to student success, as research continues to show; there is a strong correlation between increased involvement and high student success.
Once again, we are excited and looking forward to seeing our returning Tigers and getting to know our new ones.
