Tatum Elementary School

Principal's Message

Dear Families,

Thank you for visiting the Tatum Elementary School webpage. As the principal of Tatum Elementary School, I want to welcome you to our school.  I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with the highly qualified and dedicated staff, the wonderful students, and the supportive parents.

This will be my fifth year as Principal of Tatum Elementary School, and I am thrilled at the opportunity to get to know all of you and engage in the educational process together. The elementary years are critical times of development for students and families alike, and I look forward to working with all of you to make this year successful. I am a lifelong educator who brings a firm commitment to students and families as well as a love of learning and problem solving.

Our staff is committed to working with students and their families as a team. The rigorous curriculum is directly aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). To help each child achieve to his/her fullest potential, the school provides both enrichment and intervention supports for students. At TES, we believe that “Every Student is Special” and “Excellence for All.”

Research shows that parental involvement in a child’s education benefits the child. These benefits are higher levels of academic achievement, positive attitudes, and greater maturity and responsibility. Because the benefits are so solid, I urge you to take part as much as possible in the life of our school. It does take an entire village to raise a child. Your assistance as a volunteer would be extremely valuable to our students. Consider becoming a school volunteer. There are many areas where your help would be appreciated.

We welcome all our families back to another exciting, challenging year. Always contact your child’s teacher first with any concerns you may have. Please know that I am available to meet with you in person or talk to you over the telephone to discuss any concerns you may have. I look forward to a great year and to meeting all our new children and their families.

Educationally yours,

Jennifer Malone
