!

Greetings,

The students, staff and administrative team would like to welcome you to our website! We are excited about the 2014-2015 school year at West Hoke Elementary School where our goal is to grow every child.  Our theme this year is “Creating a Learning Environment of Excellence” with a focus on becoming a “School of Literacy”.

It is time for students, parents and staff to embark upon a journey that will lead to high academic achievement for all our students.  We realize that the implementation of Common Core and Essential State Standards have brought about necessary changes to ensure that students are academically prepared to be  career, college and service ready. It is our belief that positive partnerships between parents, school and community are essential for the development of the whole child.

Our “Five Principles” were created for each aspect of the educational community as the GPS to increasing student achievement and ensuring that our students are prepared for the next level.

It is our purpose to provide information on the website that will be helpful to parents, students and the school community.

I would like to challenge each parent/guardian to meet with your child’s teacher a minimum of three times this 2014-2015 school year!

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more place you'll go"- Dr. Seuss- I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!

Let the Journey Begin!
