Principal's Message

  • Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year! 

    We are excited for the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a safe and productive learning environment at Tedder Elementary School.  

    My vision for Tedder is to provide students with an educational experience that inspires and motivates them to be lifelong learners and caring contributors to the world around them. Our goal is to provide a nurturing environment that meets the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially. 

    Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. Parents are invited to become involved in our SAC Meeting that are held the third Tuesday of every month. This is the opportunity for your ideas and suggestions to be heard, as well as support the vision of our school. We encourage parents to communicate with teachers and staff to foster a successful partnership. 

    As we continue towards academic excellence, remember Tedder Bears are Better Bears and I look forward to working with the Tedder Community to foster academic excellence for all.
