Torres Elementary School, Powered by Joomla!
On behalf of the Torres Tiger Family, it is truly my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you as we begin the 2014-2015 school year. September is the time of year to reconnect with old friends and welcome new friends. We at Torres are very pleased to welcome everyone to the 2013-2014 school year! To those students and parents who are new to Torres, we extend an especially warm welcome and best wishes for an exciting and productive year in your new school. We hope that you will quickly feel at home and become involved in the activities of our school through the PTO and your child’s classroom program. As I begin my 22nd year as an administrator, the last four at Torres, I will continue to work diligently with parents and faculty to foster an atmosphere that promotes a learning community characterized by child centered instruction and decisions, academic excellence, trust, respect, and community involvement. I am committed to working in collaboration with you to continue to develop and implement this shared vision. Working together as a team, we will move forward in our mission this new school year to create a nurturing, disciplined, and challenging environment in which all students can learn at optimum levels and become responsible members of society. We have so much to be proud of as a staff, a family, and a community.
Students must read at least five nominee books, and fill out their tracking sheet in the library. We will vote in January! Click on the above link to see this year's titles.
