Dear Parents, community members, and visiting website users:
Welcome to Freddie Stowers Elementary School. A school committed to the excellence of education through best practice and compassionate, dedicated teachers striving to help EVERY student reach their potential.
The faculty and staff join me in extending a warm welcome to all of our new, and returning families. This school year promises to be one of the most exciting school year ever as we develop the most progressive and positive educational program possible for our students.
In the spring of this school year, we will have an outside team of specialists visit Stowers for the purpose of accrediting our school. They will review our educational practices, communication skills used to keep our families informed, the overall climate of the school, the confidence level of our community in what we do, as well as our vision to keep strong educational practices in the forefront of all we do here at Stowers. As in the past and forever in the future, we will continue to send regular and frequent invitations for you to become as involved in what we do at Stowers as often as your busy schedule permits. We want the visiting team to see the depth of the commitment of the community that surrounds our Stowers school. We want all who visit us to appreciate the dedication and efforts that our parents and military partners put into our school to help it be the wonderful and successful school it is.
We have a new start time this year of 9:00 AM. With this new start time comes an outstanding opportunity for our teachers. Each day a group of grade level teachers and specialists will have an opportunity to meet and discuss critical educational topics to help focus attention on lessons, programs, assessment data, etc. to allow them time to critique and look for ways of improving student academic performance. Research shows that through strong collaboration and team work, student performance is enhanced significantly.
There is no doubt that when home and school work together, we can make a difference in our children's education, and ultimately their lives. Let us all make the commitment to give our children our very best. Please know I am honored to serve you and your children at Stowers Elementary School! Thank you for this opportunity.
