Welcome Letter

Let me introduce myself. My name is Rosie Tarin. I am the new principal at Tombaugh Elementary. I am excited to welcome you to a new school year. I hope all of you had a restful - fun summer.

I have a great appreciation for education - specifically watching children as they learn and grow academically and personally. My commitment to education involves providing a safe, positive learning environment that promotes a successful academic year for all students. I look forward to meeting new faces and I value building and fostering positive relationships. As your new principal, you will see me visiting classrooms and all areas of the school. I believe being visible is important. I am honored to have the opportunity to be part of the Tombaugh team.

Thank you, I look forward to meeting all of you.

Tombaugh Vision Statement

In order to have a community of learners where learning is fun, the teacher must be a role model and facilitate for all students and provide a safe environment where students are allowed to ask questions, learn from one another, and engage in self- discovery.
