Parent & Community Feedback Survey

Time is running out to take Polk County Public Schools’ annual Community Feedback survey. We need your help!

Working with a committee, the Department of Assessment, Accountability & Evaluation created the Community Feedback Survey to measure public perception of the school district. Improving public perception is one of the goals of the School District’s current Strategic Plan.

The survey was first conducted in the 2016-17 school year, to gather baseline data. Your participation in this year’s survey will allow us to gauge our progress in the various categories. Please participate!

Note from the Principal

Dear ACE Families:

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! I hope you enjoyed a summer vacation filled with fun and exciting memories with your loved ones. We are thrilled to welcome all of you back to a new school year of learning and growing.

Personally, I am grateful to continue this journey with you as your Principal. I look forward to continue building a strong relationship with all of you in the upcoming year. As we enter this new school year, our staff will be engaging in conversations around having high expectations for learning for all students. It is my belief that every person in this building should always be growing and learning. Despite obstacles that may arise, we must always believe in our ability to rise above challenges and come out stronger on the other end.

Please come out for Orientation on Tuesday; August 8 from 9-11 AM.  Please go to the cafeteria first to get your child’s teacher assignment, purchase school shirts, pick up car tags or get your child’s bus information. Then proceed to your child’s classroom.

In Your Service,

Mrs. May
