 Back To School Night

      Back to School Night is Thursday, August 9th from 6:15 –7:30.  There will be a short presentation and introduction of new staff in the MPR at 6:15.  Classrooms will open at 6:30.   Teachers will be giving short presentations in their classrooms and welcoming families to the new school year.  Please remember that this is a time to hear about the coming year and to meet teachers.  Appointments should be made for in-depth discussions about your children. 

         Pizza, Drinks, & Dessert:  The PTSA will be selling pizza & drinks in the gym from 5:15-6:00.  This is a great way to get a bite to eat before BTSN.  Desserts will be sold throughout the evening outside our gym.


Fall Carnival / Fundraiser

Last year the Carnival Fall Fundraiser was a big success!  Our super PTSA is gearing up to make this year’s fall fundraiser another fun and successful event for our school.  We have scheduled a school Carnival Fundraiser on Friday, Sept. 28th.  Carnivals are a lot of fun and our students really enjoy them, but they take huge amount of work.  This is a big task and we will need your help.  We have a parent planning meeting for the Carnival on Thursday, Aug. 16th @ 3:20 in our library.   If you can help or support in any way, we encourage you to attend the meeting on  Aug. 16th.  Thank you!

Welcome to Poet-Christian K-8 School!

    Poet-Christian is a wonderful school community.  We have terrific students, supportive families, and a dedicated staff.  This is my 18th year at Poet and I have enjoyed working with a huge number of families and students over the years.  Our PTSA and staff works hard to provide our students with a variety of activities, events, and programs.  It is always great to see students and families participating in school functions.  These activities help us build strong bonds and enable us to maintain a positive and supportive learning environment.  The very best part of being at a K-8 school is seeing our students grow from eager young kindergarteners into terrific young teenagers.  The transformation over time is a wonderful experience.  I have enjoyed many years at Poet and look forward to many more with this caring and supportive community.  Poet has the best families, students, and staff and it is truly a special place to be every day!
    I have a B.A. in Mathematics and an M.A. in Educational Leadership and began my educational career in 1991.   I taught Math for two years at Franklin High School in Stockton and then for six years at Clover Middle School in Tracy until 1999.  I was the Asst. Principal at Hirsch for one year before coming to Poet-Christian in the Fall of 2000.  Poet has been my home ever since.  It has been a wonderful journey working with so many different students, families, and teachers over the years and I’m very happy to be a part of a great learning community.
