Principal's Message

March 2018


Dear Sharp Parents,


Your child's success depends on being here at school every day!  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.


During the month of March, the students will be learning about the character trait of being respectful to others which also is one of our school rules of being safe, responsible, and respectful.Please remind your child about the importance of being a person of character. This month we will focus on RESPECT.  Please make sure that you have conversations with your child about respect for our environment, our neighbors, our country, and our world.  In addition, please take the time to talk to your children about always following school rules: BE SAFE, BE RESPECTFUL, and BE RESPONSIBLE AT ALL TIMES!


In March, we will be celebrating Women's History Month.  Our students will be learning about influential women that have made significant contributions to the world.  We encourage everyone to visit the local library and read about some of these women and their accomplishments.  We should all encourage our young girls to strive to follow the footsteps of these wonderful role models.


Our Spring Carnival was a success.  Many families came to support the school and had a family fun filled afternoon with games, food, and prizes.  Thank you to all the teachers and staff who volunteered their time to support the school.  All the proceeds from the carnival go to school programs for the students of Sharp Avenue Elementary. 


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 Tuesdays 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
