Principal's Message

  • Principal, Denise Lawrence

    Dear Tedder Parents and Guardians:  

    It is with great pleasure that I have the honor of becoming your new Principal at Tedder Elementary School. I am looking forward to working with you to provide the best possible educational experience for your child. As we embark on the 2022-2023 school year, we will continue to need your commitment to academic excellence to ensure that your child is successful.  

    Our educational program is academically challenging, engaging, and exciting. It is my sincere desire to provide expanded opportunities for our students to acquire the skills to become productive citizens in a vastly changing society. Tedder Elementary School has an excellent teaching staff with a wealth of knowledge. We also have an outstanding support staff that 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 PTA.  Working together makes a difference in the lives of our students. 

     Again, I am very excited to be your new Principal and I look forward to meeting and working with you and  remember " Tedder Bears are Better Bears!"

     Educationally Yours, 

     Denise Lawrence
