Welcome Back! We are incredibly excited to begin a new school year at Anderson! This promises to be a year filled with golden opportunities for all of our students as we strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have before!  We embark on this journey with a pledge to you, our students and families, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events and a plethora of activities to encourage our students to be the best that can be!

Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize various opportunities.

We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our families to join us at school activities and events whenever possible.  We WANT . . . we NEED . . . and we VALUE your involvement and support in your child’s education!  Please know that we highly value home/school communication here at Anderson.  It is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success.  We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay in the know about your child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings.

Again, we welcome you to Anderson and to our wonderful learning community . . . a place where we will continue to rise to a higher standard, Anderson is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound!  Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to learn each day!
