• Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!

    I am honored to be the principal of this wonderful school and I am very excited to welcome your child to a new school year. We are TOBIAS…Teaching Our Best to Inspire Achieving Students. At our campus we have a supportive team of dedicated teachers and staff members who strive each day to give your child the best educational experience possible. Our theme for 2020-2021 is “We Are All Pieces of the World and We Fit Together!” This theme is special to us because we pride ourselves on being a campus of inclusivity and welcoming to everyone.

    We know that this school year will be filled with challenges, but also unique rewards as we strive to safely re-open our school and welcome back our students. We have missed them greatly and are looking forward to seeing them again in person and the virtual world!

    My experience in education spans 25 years and I have been an invested Hays CISD educator for the past 19 years. I am also a mom to three children who graduated from or are attending Hays CISD schools. The education that you desire for your child is the same that I want for my own and this drives my personal commitment to ensuring that each child receives a quality education at our school. I am proud to be a public-school educator!

    At Tobias, we believe that a child’s education is greatly impacted by the support of parents, teachers, and administrators working together. We encourage you to be involved in your child’s education by reading with them at home, reinforcing math skills, talking to them about what they are learning, and volunteering to help either at home or on campus. We appreciate and value parental support.  A great school is the responsibility of everyone involved!

    Tobias Elementary School has a Facebook page so LIKE us for informative updates or follow us on Twitter @TobiasExplorers. We encourage you to join our terrific PTA that supports our school and programs and LIKE their page on Facebook (Tobias Elementary PTA). Our weekly parent newsletter, the Tobias Traveler is published every Sunday evening and sent out via email. Please be sure to read it for important weekly information.

    We are looking forward to an amazing school year as we are #StrongerTogether!
