Principal's Message

January 2018


Dear Sharp Parents, welcome back to school!


Happy 2018 to all our students, parents, and staff!  We hope that your holidays were filled with wonderful memories and that the new year; that is just beginning, will be filled with much love, happiness, and hope.


Thank you for your support by bringing your children to school every day and on time!  One of our improvement goals this year is to improve attendance.  Please make sure that your child is here at school and on time every day.  For your information, be in their classroom line by 7:40 a.m.


Please remind your child about the importance of being a person of character. This month we will focus on being respectful to others which also is one of our school rules of being safe, responsible, and respectful.  Please take the time to talk to your children about always following school rules and most important being responsible with their school work and showing respect to all at ALL TIMES!


Second Semester has begun and during the month of January, all students will be given the DIBELS Middle of the Year Assessment to determine their progress in literacy skills and comprehension.  In February, we will be celebrating Black History Month (BHM) and students from selected classrooms will be performing during the BHM Program on February 23rd.


Parent Teacher Conferences are fast approaching.  Conferences will be from February 26th through March 2nd.  Please take this opportunity to talk to your child's teacher on how you can help your child at home.


Do you want to see your child's name in lights?  This year, we are offering space on our school marquee for birthday announcements, etc.  The cost is only $20.00 a day!


I would like to remind you that on Tuesday students will be dismissed at 1:04 p.m.  Please make sure that you refer to the calendar that was sent at the beginning of the year.


Thank you for your support,


Kyla Hinson
