Principal's Message

Dear Andersen Families,

On behalf of the Andersen Elementary School Staff, welcome to the new school year! This will be another outstanding year for Andersen Elementary. Our staff remains committed to our mission of offering a rigorous instructional program, which is both academically challenging and rewarding for ALL students. This year we are really focusing on the character trait of KINDNESS and will have a variety of activities for students, staff and the community. Additionally, we work to support the social and emotional aspect of our students through the implementation of our PBIS system and a strong focus on being Respectful, Ready, and Responsible. Another priority is SAFETY! We are always reflecting on how to best keep our students safe. There will be procedures everyone will be expected to follow as we partner to keep our kids safe. One of the procedures is to always enter the school through the FRONT OFFICE DOOR and sign in. We must all do our part to uphold these safety practices. Please look for weekly safety messages as a part of my “Weekly Happenings” highlighting safety practices.

Andersen Elementary is a high performing and successful school because of our “Triangle of Success,” Parents, Students and Educational Staff all teaming together. We believe that a part of our success is the strong communication we have with our parent community. In an effort to keep effective communication between home and school please register and read the information sent through our PTA as well as the “Weekly Happenings” message I send out each Friday on Blackboard.  In addition, our PTA and DEANS websites are great sources of information. I encourage you to follow Andersen Elementary on Twitter and or on Instagram in order to see firsthand the great learning taking place at Andersen.

Most Sincerely,

Dr. Shannon Bray
