Hobgood Elementary School's faculty and staff are very excited as we begin the 2015-2016 school year. Our intention at Hobgood is to create a stimulating environment in which all children grow academically, socially, emotionally and physically. We strive to provide opportunities for all students to prosper with acceptance and encouragement.
As we look forward to an exciting year, we expect our students to perform their best. Our students will have opportunities to read, write, and compute independently, use a variety of ways to solve problems, and demonstrate healthy habits. Through our reading and language program we will provide a plan designed to help all students learn to read and write effectively. With our math program, you will see students approach mathematical problems with new strategies and understanding.
We will continue to provide ways for students to reach their fullest potential. Each student will be held to high academic and behavior standards. The continued use of Professional Learning Teams, varied resources, and best practices will provide a quality instructional program that meets the individual needs of our students. We will provide a learning environment that is nurturing, safe, and supportive. We will also focus on students making good choices and being responsible for their behavior. Your continued support is also needed as we continue to stress health awareness. Helping our students to select healthy foods and participate in activities that support the development of healthy bodies will benefit them in the future. With everyone working together as a TEAM, we can achieve our goals.
Continuous communication between and among parents and students that is clear, consistent, and specific is one of the keys to a successful and safe environment, where academic excellence prevails. Our handbook has been created to inform our school community of our expectations and available services. If we can assist you in any way, please don’t hesitate to call. You can reach us at 615-895-2744 or please see our "Staff Directory" on this site
