Dear Parents and Students,                                                                                                                                  

    Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! San Marcos Elementary is looking beautiful and we are ready to open and begin another great school year! We had a very busy summer at SME- it was so nice to see students at our school all summer long. We loved watching students come to the different programs we had here at SME this summer and stopping by for breakfast or lunch.

    Our teachers are ready for your students to arrive on Tuesday, August 22. You still have 1 week to stock up on your new school uniforms for this year. We have the same uniform as last year.

    Our mission at San Marcos Elementary is to inspire students to imagine, innovate, discover, and design.  We will do this by providing real world learning opportunities through technology, collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking. Through these opportunities, all students will be primed for college and career success, as well as engaged citizens in their community.  We believe students and teachers can be designers, creators, problem solvers, and lifelong learners. We have many new things planned for this school year- we can’t wait to share!

    I am happy to be returning as the principal at San Marcos Elementary! We have such a special school-I love it at SME! This will be my 12th year at SME. I am confident that this year will be a year of growth, learning, friendships, and great memories for each of your children.

    To help students and parents feel comfortable with their first day of school, we will be having our annual “Posting Party” (opening school doors) from 3:30-4:30. We will post class lists up at school on Thursday, August 17th at 3:30. School will be open for a little bit so your child can walk by their new classroom and stop by outside to see where to line up on the first day of school. We will be selling our new school T-Shirts for $10.00 and fruit slushies.

    We would love to see all of you this year at our Flag Salute assemblies, Family Fridays, PTO meetings or on ELAC. Please find a way to help support us at our school. We need you!!!

    It is going to be a fabulous school year!
