Tappahannock Elementary School



Dear  Students, Parents, and Essex County Community Members,

     I would like to welcome you to Tappahannock Elementary School, where we believe the power of early childhood education can lead to a lifetime of success. The educational foundation a child gains at the elementary school level, sets them up for success at the secondary levels and beyond. It is our duty to provide children with the best possible start to their educational careers.
     Tappahannock Elementary School strives to meet the educational and social needs of students by creating a child centered atmosphere and focusing on individual needs.
     Academic success depends on partnerships between students, teachers and parents. One of the best ways for a parent to become a partner is to communicate the importance of education. When parents send children the message that education is important, students are more likely to enjoy the educational process and work to meet their full potential. Take the time to ask your child about their school day, about what they are learning and above all emphasize the importance of reading. Research shows that when parents read with their children on a daily basis, not only does their aptitude for learning increase, but the relationship with their parents is strengthened.
     I look forward to working with the parents and children of Tappahannock Elementary School. For further information about TES, you may call the school at 804-443-5301 or you may contact me via email at agross@essex.k12.va.us.


GO ROCKFISH!
