    Dear Tamarac Tiger Family,

    I am so excited to embark on this 2022-2023 school year adventure! Our theme for this school year is, "Learning is an adventure and Tamarac Elementary is where the adventure begins!" Tamarac Elementary did an excellent job last year earning a “B” letter grade, being only 4 percentage points away from making the “A”!! I am so proud of our students and staff, and we will be going for the “A” this year! I hope that you were able to relax and make special memories with your friends and families over the summer. Now it is time to look forward to a wonderful new school year! I am excited to welcome many new staff members to our Tamarac Tiger family, who will be a part of our learning adventure.

    At Tamarac Elementary, we will continue to place a strong emphasis on social emotional learning while focusing on building classroom community. Tamarac Elementary is a special place to learn and grow and we have high expectations for each and every student. We are proud of our beautiful school and our students who are kind, compassionate and resilient.
