Fall Carnival - Sept. 28th

3:05-8:00 p.m.

 

    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.  

    We need your help to make the carnival a success again this year.  We have a great group of parents working on the planning and organization of the event.  There are three ways you can help with the Fall Carnival: 

    1)  Donate items to your child’s classroom basket.  All classrooms have themed baskets that will be raffled off or auctioned off at the event.
    2)  Volunteer at your child’s classroom booth and activity.  Volunteers are critical for keeping the carnival running smoothly!  
    3)  Come out and enjoy time at our Carnival!    Tell your family and tell your friends to come out to our carnival on Friday, Sept. 28th!

 MEET THE PRINCIPAL

 

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.
