    Dear Tarver Families, 

    Welcome back to the 2023-2024 school year!  Our hope is that your family has enjoyed a wonderful summer break, making new memories, embracing new adventures and finding time to relax.  We are so excited to welcome all of our student scholars back for a magical year.  

    This year our school-wide theme is Disney’s “If you can dream it, you can achieve it!” We want all of our students to believe in the power of their hopes and dreams and reach for the stars.  We know that your child has unlimited potential and if they set goals, work hard, and believe in themselves, they can achieve anything.  We want them to succeed in all they do.  Our goal is that your child is just as excited for school as they would be to take a trip to Disneyland.  🙂

    As always we are excited to connect and grow with our students and build relationships with our families.  The excitement across the campus is contagious and I know that when you step onto our campus for Meet the Teacher and the First Day of School, you will feel the magic that is taking place all around the Tarver campus. At Tarver, we know the keys to our scholars’ future success lie in the range of experiences they are part of both in school and at home.  With that in mind, we aim to provide opportunities for all our students to explore their strengths, talents, and potential.  We invite you to come alongside and partner with us on this incredible journey.  

    Additionally, as a Title 1 School, in conjunction with the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2016 (ESSA), we understand the importance of providing your child with teachers and instructional assistants that are highly effective and meet all state requirements.  Our staff is committed to providing high levels of academic achievement and critical thinking skills in order to be college and career-ready.  As a parent, you have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of those who work with your child.

    With our amazing and talented staff and parents working together, our students will be the leaders of tomorrow!  We look forward to meeting each of you, developing relationships, and sharing our goals, vision, and big rocks with all of you!  It’s an exciting time at Tarver, and we are ready to Teach, LOVE, Inspire!

    Tarver, Dolphins SWIM together . . .
