Dear Parents:


Welcome to an exciting year at New Market Elementary School! It will be an adventurous year as we implement the Common Core State Standards in every grade level. Our literacy lessons will incorporate Science and Social Studies, while students will be engaged in detailed Math solutions. Each subject area will have a heavy emphasis on writing skills and technology. Students will be challenged to learn all that they possibly can with strong support practices in the classroom.


In order to meet the demands of such a rigorous curriculum, all schools in Jefferson County will begin at 8:00AM ending at 3:00 PM. Students who are not at school by 8:00 will be counted tardy. I want you to be aware of this change from past procedures. It will be helpful for you to take time to read the school handbook with your child. Answers of many questions are contained herein. Also, periodically you will receive school notes, PTO Monthly Newsletters, and One Call Now messages concerning school events.


I invite you to join our PTO, volunteer to tutor a child, to assist a teacher, or just drop by to join your child for lunch. We welcome you and appreciate your support of our school and the many activities that occur throughout the year. More importantly, we appreciate all you do to help your child at home. I look forward to working with you as we help your child grow. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns.




Mrs. Vickie Forgety, Principal
