Welcome to Antioch Elementary: A Letter from Principal Benfield
Dear parent or guardian:
School will open in just a few days, and as principal of Antioch Elementary School, I wanted to welcome you and your student to our school. As a district, UCPS believes in educating every child well. At Antioch Elementary School, 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.Full Story
