Experience the power of public education.
Greetings College Station Elementary Families,
It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself, Mary Carpenter, as the new principal of College Station Elementary. My passion for education and the success of all students has been shaped over my years serving as a volunteer, teacher, special education advocate, assistant principal, and principal. In each role, I have sought to ensure the success of each student and school by providing the best educational opportunities possible. Similarly, it is my number one priority at College Station Elementary that every student receives a well-rounded education.
As our summer comes to a close our thoughts eagerly turn to the beginning of another dynamic year. The College Station faculty and staff are excited to work with you as we provide high quality, rigorous, challenging and relevant instruction for your children. College Station Elementary staff members seek to empower students to develop a passion for lifelong learning and nurture them by engaging their intellect, emotions and natural curiosity. We seek to instill not only the objectives and skills specified by Common Core Standards, but develop student competence and motivation that will enrich each life. Our daily work together includes creating a safe and supportive environment in which all learners can pursue academic and social learning experiences and fulfill their individual unique potentials.
You are a huge part of the College Station Elementary success! Parent involvement increases student achievement and enriches the school community. Please feel free to regularly volunteer inside/outside our classrooms. By doing so, you are providing valued attention to students, teachers, and the school community. As we build upon existing relationships and forge new ones, it is our sincerest hope that we work hand in hand to support the social, emotional and academic well-being of each child at College Station Elementary. Through this teaming effort, we will make tremendous progress for all!
Thank you for trusting your child in our care and partnering with College Station Elementary faculty/staff members to prepare children in becoming lifelong learners. We look forward to working together in the year ahead. Please feel free to contact me at 501-490-5750 with questions, suggestions and/or concerns.
Mary Carpenter, Ed.S
