Principal's Welcome


Dear Tubman Students and Families,

It is hard to believe that it is almost time to start another school year! The 2019-20 school year gets underway Monday, August 26th. I hope everyone is well-rested after an enjoyable summer and ready to engage in learning. I am confident that we will continue to pave the way in innovative educational efforts and prepare all of our students to be truly college and career ready.

Looking ahead, we have made some positive changes that will help steer our students in the right direction and make better choices. To help facilitate our student learning, we have provided more time for our middle school students to take a deeper dive into our curriculum and instruction. This will include advisory periods and block scheduling. We have also purchased iReady for the entire school. iReady is an individualized program which pinpoints student needs down to the sub-skill level, and ongoing progress monitoring that shows whether students are on track to achieve end-of-year targets.

You will be able to meet all of our staff at our Back to School BBQ on Thursday, August 22nd at 4:00 at our outdoor area. This year’s Back to School BBQ will be free to families. Class lists will posted during that time and we will have games for all families to enjoy.

We look forward to seeing you at the Back to School BBQ and on the first day of school, Monday, August 26th.
