Welcome To The Captain William G. Shoemaker Elementary School
Effort Counts! Try Your Best! You can do it!
We hope that every child succeeds and we will encourage all of our students to try their best at all times. Effort is the key to success. You can help out by encouraging your children to try their best in all that they do. Working together we can help each child make progress toward the attainment of learning standards as well as their own personal dreams.
This year we will continue to send communications electronically as much as possible in addition to paper notices. Check the website periodically. I will try to post all notices that we send home from the office. Also many teachers do a weekly or monthly newsletter to keep you informed of what is happening in the classroom. We will set up the classroom pages so that we can post each classroom newsletter as they go home.
The PTO is looking to spread out the volunteers so that a small group is not doing all the events. Many parents are working and need to take time off to work a school event. If everyone helps at just one event, any one parent is not becoming burdened with making it all happen. Watch for more information and think about on which event you would like to help.
We are all here for your children. Please let me know right away if there is something that is not sitting right with you or you have a question. Most times it can be fixed or cleared up rather quickly when we put our heads together to problem solve. Remember if I do not hear from you I may not know there is an issue. Many times I am already aware of an issue and working on it. Thank you for your patience when it takes a while to work some things out.
