Welcome to Hemphill Elementary!
As principal of Hemphill Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for the 2019-2020 school year. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school that is so dedicated to each child’s personal and academic development. We are excited to have students back in our classrooms filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to help every child feel welcomed, connected, and a part of our Hawk family. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in their academic abilities. We are looking forward to an incredible school year and working with you as a partner in education to ensure the continued growth and development of our students. This year our theme is “Read It. Write It. Achieve It.” Through hard work, high expectations, dedication, and collaboration I know we will make a direct impact in the lives of our students. We ask that you help support our students by reading every single night with them. Help us build the love of reading and learning.
We are committed to ensuring that every student’s academic and social-emotional needs are met to their fullest extent. I set high expectations for myself, our staff, students, parents/guardians and community. I further recognize the importance of a strong home-school connection as parents/guardians are every child’s first teacher, and therefore, we must work together. I want to extend an invitation to get involved in our campus! Please consider joining our PTA, signing-up to volunteer, or simply come in and listen to our children read. I will communicate consistently with all of you through monthly newsletters that will be posted on our website, text messages through the Remind App, and through community events.
I look forward to working as a team with each of you to support Hemphill Elementary. Together we can reach new heights and continue on the path to inspiring excellence!
