A Note from Miss Sanders

A note from the Principal


Dear Parents:                                                                          


Welcome to Girard Elementary School for a new academic year! We spent all summer preparing for your child's return and are excited to invite you back, too. We are looking forward to a successful, productive year. We are extending a special welcome to you if you are a newcomer to Girard this year!


This handbook answers many of the questions you may have about the rules and activities here at Girard. We hope this will be helpful to you throughout the year. We are looking forward to helping you have a good school year.


We are working to develop a partnership with our parents. Our goal at Girard is to establish positive communication between home and school. This year, Girard School students will continue to use Student Planners in 2nd-5th grades. This resource is designed to teach students time management, organization, and goal setting skills. Each planner is also a resource tool for maintaining communication among teachers, students, and parents.


In order for the school to meet the goals it has set forth, your involvement in your child's education is essential. Our goals for parents are to:


    • Initial or sign-off on assigned tasks after successful completion.


    • Communicate with teachers to exchange praises, questions and concerns.


    • Increase knowledge of homework assignments and long-term project deadlines.


    • Encourage students to become more accountable for schoolwork.


    • Help students complete planner work as assigned.



We need your help to ensure success with this resource. Together, we can support our children as they learn skills for the future. Time management, organization, and goal setting skills will last a lifetime. We welcome you as a member of our team to promote success!


If you have any questions, please feel free to call the school office at 794-1467.
