Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:

 On behalf of the faculty and staff at the Delta South Elementary, we want to extend a very warm and cordial welcome to each of you. We are excited at the prospect of starting a new school year and also of having you as part of that new beginning. Each member of our faculty and staff is excited to be here and eager to have this chance to work cooperatively in creating a wonderful place to work with young children and to help them begin this life long journey of learning, exploring and growing.

 To help you get to know us better and to provide important information we have assembled this handbook. In it you will find information which will be helpful to you and will also be very beneficial to your students. We would like to request that you spend some time and review the contents of this handbook and then share with your children those things that your feel are important and relevant for them.

 We are looking forward to a great year. Please know that we realize that our role is to help and assist each individual student to achieve academic success and to have a positive experience as they begin their formal education. We also realize that you, as parents, are as important as your children’s teachers in this learning process. I strongly encourage you to be involved and to know what your students are doing at school. Spend time talking about school and supporting what they are learning at school. Reading with your children on a regular and consistent basis may be the most important thing you can do to support the educational process at this time.

Thanks again for allowing us the opportunity to work with each of you and your children. Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions or concerns and know that you are always welcome in our school.
