Principal's Message

Andrea Barksdale

Principal of Turner Elementary School

 
 
Dear Turner Parents/Guardians,
 
My name is Mrs. Andrea J. Barksdale and it is an honor to introduce myself as the new principal of Delia Turner Elementary School.  I am excited to join this extraordinary school community where students, teachers, and parents care for each other and strive to build meaningful relationships that support academic and social-emotional growth.
 
I firmly believe the key to student success is the partnering of the home and school and I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and I want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.
 
I ask for your continued support in your child’s growth and learning by ensuring that your child/children do the following:
 
Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

Actively participates in learning activities

Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

I am eager to meet you at Open House on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, as we look forward to an amazing year of growth and achievement at Delia Turner Elementary.
 
 
Educationally yours,
 
Andrea J. Barksdale
