Principal's Message

  • Principal, Denise Lawrence

     Dear Tedder Parents and Guardians:  



    It is with great pleasure that I have the honor to serve as your Proud Principal.  I am looking forward to working with you to provide the best possible educational experience for your child.  I am grateful that you have entrusted your child to us for the 2023-2024 academic school year. As we embark on the new school year, we will continue to need your commitment to academic excellence to ensure that your child is successful.  


    Our school’s theme this year is: “Growing and Learning Together at Tedder Elementary.” All students are challenged to meet their full potential as we continue to implement the Florida BEST Standards. Tedder Elementary School has an excellent teaching staff with a wealth of knowledge. We also have an outstanding support staff who work in different capacities to support your child’s learning. Of course, as the parent, you are your child’s first teacher!   


    Finally, if your child needs additional support or if you have a concern, please do not hesitate to contact his/her teacher.  It is our mission to support your child in whatever way we can.    I invite you to be active participants in our parent workshops, School Advisory Council, School Advisory Forum, and our PTO.  Working together makes a difference in the lives of our students. 


    We hope you and your child are ready for a “SENSATIONAL” year of learning.   I am very excited for the new school year and look forward to meeting and working with both retuning and new Tedder parents! 




    Educationally Yours, 


    Denise Lawrence
