    Greetings Parents, Guardians and Community Members!

    We are off and soaring into another Magnificent Markham school year! I am excited about our instructional plans to help students move to the next level of academic achievement.  In addition, we plan to engage parents and the community through activities, such as School Advisory Council (SAC), School Advisory Forum (SAF), Parents and Teachers Association (PTA).

    Our theme for this year is: ““The Be Hive: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe”

    Les Brown stated, “If you take responsibility for yourself, you will develop a hunger to accomplish your dreams.” Together we can do so much”. The vision of C. Robert Markham Elementary is that all students meet and exceed mastery. Our students, faculty, administration, non-instructional employees, parents, and community members comprise the Markham family, and together we will push them to greatness, as measured by their goals and dreams.

    I encourage all families to attend our quarterly Family Nights and Zone Engagement Activities.  We will share lots of ideas for helping students to become academic achievers, while making learning fun and engaging.  It is going to be a wonderful year!

    If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to call our main office at 754-322-6950.


    Shedrick Dukes, Ed.S.
