Welcome Back, Gators!

Dear Antioch Gator Families,

School will open in just a few days, and as principal of Antioch Elementary, I wanted to welcome you and your student to our school. As a district, UCPS believes in educating every child well. At Antioch Elementary, we share that commitment and we will work to help your child learn and grow this year.

Educating a child is a big job, and we need your help to do it well. Please be sure your child comes to school each day rested and ready to learn. Attendance and arriving on time are also important – we don’t want our students to miss any instructional time, so please make sure your child is here on time every day.

We also ask that you support us by making sure your child understands that school is important and success in school is something that your family values. A lot of research shows that students whose parents are involved in their education do better in school than children whose parents are not involved.

So I hope you’ll be an active partner with us, whether you choose to participate in our school’s parent-teacher group, volunteer at the school or take part in special events. We welcome your involvement in our school.
