Hisamatsu Tamura Elementary School Home

WELCOME

I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2015-16 school year!  Summer has come and gone and we must now move forward. Everything is progressing smoothly to a great opening of school on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

I am privileged to have the opportunity to return this school year as your Principal and I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and all of the supportive parents. The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families and  I look forward in working with all of you to make this school year successful. I am a lifelong educator and I am committed to students and families as well as a love for learning.

Our teachers have been preparing for the arrival of our new math program. They have attended Professional Development trainings and are prepared to implement many new strategies to differentiate the instrucion for all of our student's needs. Our teachers have been working hard in preparing their classrooms and lesson plans that promise to make for another exciting and productive year at Tamura. We give many thanks to our site custodian, Mr. Dave and the District's entire manintenance crew who have been working diligently to prepare our campus for the start of the new school year. All we await for now, is our fabulous Tamura Tigers.

This school year we will encourage our entire Tamura community to demonstrate our Tamura pride by wearing our school colors and/or t-shirts on Fridays! 

In closing, please enjoy the remaining days of summer. I look forward to seeing many new and familiar faces on our first day of school.

Our vision of success begins September 9, 2015.

Warmly,

Mrs. Kathy Davis

Tamura Elementary School

Please note:  STUDENTS ARRIVING TARDY MUST BE BROUGHT INTO THE OFFICE BY AN ADULT AND SIGNED IN.
