Principal's Message

Andersen Families,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I am thrilled to be welcoming your children back to school! We have eagerly anticipated the full reopening of our campus.

Community is the genuine care and compassion shared between staff, students, and parents. Andersen Elementary is a place where staff and families come together to ensure that the children entrusted into our care grow to be productive, confident, compassionate, members of a global society. I look forward to an amazing year!

On behalf of the Andersen Staff, I’d like to extend a warm WELCOME to our new families and a WELCOME BACK to those of you who are returning. I hope that your summer was filled with fun and relaxation and that you made a lot of wonderful memories with family and friends. It’s hard to believe school is starting, but, here we are, ready for a great year!

I look forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our students can achieve their highest potential. Our teachers understand that part of our students’ success relies heavily on the support offered both at school and at home and a strong partnership with you will make a difference in your child’s education. I am certain that our common responsibility for our students' success will provide fruitful outcomes as the year progresses no matter the challenges.

If you have not done so please review the 2021-2022 School Year Handbook located on our website. In this handbook you  will find useful information that can help us move forward with the first days of school. Additionally, please consider becoming involved in our parent community by joining the PTA, DEANs and School Site Council (SSC) that helps guide decisions made here at Andersen. We are always open to finding ways to continue to involve parents/guardians to help create engaging learning environments that will promote success in our children.

Thank you for your continued support as we work together as a school community inspiring our students to strive for and achieve their goals.

Take care & stay safe-
Dr. Tiffany Lewis
Principal, Andersen Elementary

Andersen Community,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Andersen Elementary. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education! My most recent administrative experience was at Woodland Elementary, where I served as principal. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Andersen and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue Andersen’s legacy by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. We will focus on character education and empowering teachers and students so that we can continue to increase all of the students' achievement. I have been spending time getting to know the school's community and familiarizing myself with Andersen. In doing so, I've learned that Andersen is a place where strong connections are made between home and school, and staff members are committed to developing the whole child. As the parent of two children, I fully understand the challenges and rewards you face every day to ensure your child has the best educational experience. My passion has been, and always will be educating students. With that in mind, you can expect that I will work diligently with teachers to make sure our students are exposed to curriculum and instruction that is engaging and challenging.

My door is always open, and I welcome your input. Please feel free to contact me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to working with you to help each student at Andersen meet their goals and have a successful school year!

Sincerely,
Tiffany Lewis
