Kimberly Pittman, Principal
Message from the Principal
Welcome to the 2017 - 2018 academic school year! Welcome to a NEW year, NEW beginnings and another opportunity to continue our educational thrust to becoming a high performing, elementary academic oasis in Louisiana. We pride ourselves in maintaining high expectations for student achievement while focusing on the individual needs of each student. Our school has an outstanding reputation for providing a variety of educational opportunities for students in a fun, safe and loving environment.
As the instructional leader of Tallulah Elementary School, it is with excitement that I look forward to continuing our school community collaborations in an effort to establish a climate and culture for effective teaching and learning and to create an environment where the scholars of our school community will thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.
My leadership vision for Tallulah Elementary is to become one of the highest performing schools in the nation and high academic expectations will continue to be the cornerstone of the staff, resources, instructional activities, school activities and guidance to accomplish this goal. Therefore, as I have done retrospectively, I encourage each of you to consider how you will contribute to our continuous improvement. As a full implementation TAP School, the bar has been set high for us and we, through hard work and collective efforts, can guarantee that we will rise to the challenge and work efficiently and effectively to ensure that all of our students have access to high-quality, standards-based instruction that will enable them to be successful in the global workplace.
Individually and collectively, we will embrace this initiative and work toward the accomplishment of this vision for the future of our students and for the future of Tallulah. I know you will find that working together leads to the highest quality educational program for our children.
Please accept my wishes for an enriching, productive, and academically rewarding school year and remember: “Every Student Matters, Every Moment Counts!” Every student deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understand the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be. ~ Rita Pierson
