Welcome back for the 2012 2013 School Year

I would like to welcome back all of our returning families, as well as those coming to Socrum for the first time. This coming school year should prove be another challenging, yet rewarding time for Socrum Elementary.

As you probably know by now, Socrum Elementary maintained our School Grade of “A” for the 2011-2012 school year. We are very proud of the fact that Socrum was one of only six Title I schools to receive this distinction. This could only be accomplished through the hard work of our students, effective teaching in every classroom, and the support of each parent. With your continued support and hard work of everyone involved in the educational process of our students, we will again have a successful year in 2012-2013. It’s hard to believe but this kindergarten class will be the graduation class of 2025. It’s our job to make sure that happens.

During this past summer we hired eight new teachers due to transfers, but I think you will find that we were able to find very capable, highly trained, highly skilled teachers to replace those that left us.

Again, we look forward to working with our parents, students, and community to continue the excellence we expect here at Socrum Elementary. We believe that every student should be An Active Learner—Respectful—and Responsible.

Have a great year!

Jack Cline
