As we enter 2019 and are coming up on the end of the first semester of the school year, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the faculty, students, and parents for all of the hard work that they have been putting forth. Students are really making strides, and I see wonderful lessons every day as I walk through the building. That being said, I would like to continue encouraging students and parents to make sure that all children come to school every day. Attendance is so important for a successful education, and we strive to have 100% attendance every single day. Each month we will be having attendance rewards for those students who come to school every day.
Thank you again for the effort you put in every day here at Barack Obama Elementary School. Keep up the great work!
Mrs. Jennifer K. Moore, Principal
