Greetings and welcome to the 2017-18 school year at Spencer County Elementary!
I want to take this opportunity to send you some information regarding the first week of school. First, my name is Gary Kidwell and I will be the Interim Principal this year. I am honored and excited to be here as you have a wonderful school community and an excellent staff who truly loves kids. I look forward to working with all of you this year.
We had a great Open House for Kindergarten and Pre-school Thursday night. On Monday, Aug. 7th, we will have Open House for grades 1-5 at 5:00-6:30. Teachers will be in their classrooms for you to visit. I realize most of you are familiar with the school building but some teachers have changed rooms. So, Ms. Phillips has created a layout map of classrooms on the bulletin board in the main hallway as well as a power point that describes locations of teachers.
Also, in the cafeteria you will find bus information from Mr. Thomas and car rider signups with Ms. Crouch and Ms. Henry as well as PTA and FRYSC information. In the library there will be lots of information from Volunteer Coordinator Ms. Welch, Kroger Card signups (huge, easy fundraiser) as well as some free items from the library. Assistant Principal Ms. McGinnis and I will also be available to answer any questions you may have.
Of course, Wednesday 9th is the first day of school for grades K-5. Please remember the Boo-Hoo Yahoo Breakfast for Kindergarten students at 8:30-9:30 that morning.
The first few days of school can be a bit hectic, but we will get settled in and have a wonderful, happy and productive school year!
