Parent Welcome Letter
I am honored to serve as the new principal of Brockington Elementary Magnet and feel privileged to be a part of this school family. I recognize that in order to be successful, our children will need support both from home and school. A strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. I ask that you work together with me to ensure that our children achieve at their highest potential.
Communication between us is essential. I am committed to effectively communicating upcoming changes/revisions with procedures/policies that directly impact our students and you within a timely fashion. It is very important to me that you and your child are fully informed. As the Florence 1 Schools 2022-2023 Year-Round Calendar will be followed and the first day for students will be August 1st, it is imperative that I introduce to you our new school logo/colors (shown above) as this affects the student dress code and uniform policy. The faculty and administration still finds that the attire worn by students often distracts them from academic achievement which is the primary purpose of attending school. The continued adoption of the uniform dress code policy will reduce distractions and disruptions caused by clothing, make economic disparities between students less obvious, promote student achievement, and create an orderly learning environment. The uniform dress code policy will consist of khaki bottoms (pants, knee shorts, skirts, and/or skorts) and polo shirts (orange, blue, or white). All students will adhere to the uniform dress code while attending classes, riding buses, or participating in any other school function, unless otherwise indicated by school administration.
Let us always keep our students first and them as our primary focus. I thank you for your support and I look forward to celebrating the collective successes of our students during this upcoming school year.
