Message From Mrs. McFarland

Dear Parents

On behalf of the staff at Stagecoach Elementary School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your childs education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our childrens success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your childs learning by ensuring that he/she:

  1. Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the days learning experience
  2. Completes all homework assignments given by teachers
  3. Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
  4. Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life
  5. Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject
  6. Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school

If you have any questions about the expectations at Stagecoach Elementary please feel free to contact me or to discuss them with your childs teacher. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding procedures to ensure a safe and productive school year.

The wonderful staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support.
