Greetings Austin Family, 

The faculty and staff members are excited about another year of teaching and learning. As we embark upon the 2015 – 2016 school year, we firmly believe that high expectations, academic standards and achievement are critical to the success of every student.  Thus, our staff is also focused on the social, emotional, and character development of our learners. It is also our belief that high academic achievement, values, and character development go hand in hand and are ultimately the real formula for true success. 

As we Set High Expectations for learning, there will be a higher level of monitoring academic growth by the teachers and administration. We must build a solid educational foundation for our students; therefore our expectation for the students at Austin is that they will come to school everyday prepared and ready to learn! You can help us by having this same expectation and communicating to your child that we will stand together, united as we endeavor to increase student achievement. We make this pledge to you by teaching to a standard of excellence while promoting a positive school culture. To make that happen, we need you, our parents, to stay actively involved in your child’s social and school life. By developing a close collaborative relationship with your child’s teachers, you will always know what is happening in your child’s school life. Additionally, I encourage you to pledge your support to become an active participant in your child’s education by joining the Austin family and volunteering your time and talents here at Austin.

I challenge you to come and see for yourself that we at Austin are achieving excellence “All Day, Everyday, All Year”

Always Keeping Children First,
