As Principal of Telfair County Elementary School, I would like to welcome you to the Telfair County Schools website. This website has been prepared in the hope that it will become a valuable resource for you and provide you with school news and information. This website has been developed to enable everyone to become familiar with our school, its policies, and other procedures.
Here at Telfair County Elementary School, our staff set high academic standards for our students. Our staff works diligently to ensure that each child is working to his or her maximum ability. Telfair County Elementary School, the Telfair County School District and our community have a common goal to do what is best for the students.
The handbook contains information that is important and useful. I urge you to read it thoroughly and thoughtfully. These guidelines are written in order to create an environment conducive to learning and a school where students, staff, and visitors feel safe and secure. The expectations for behavior written in our Code of Conduct are based on the essential value of respecting the rights and dignity of each other. Our school can continue to be an outstanding community when all adults treat all students with respect, when all students treat all adults with respect and when all students treat each other with respectful and responsible behavior. When all of us work together with each individual doing his or her part, we can truly make a difference. I will always encourage you to accept the challenge to be a model of respectful behavior.
Study hard, challenge yourself, set high goals and enjoy yourself. We are blessed to have a great school with great students and teachers. Make this time some of the most important and productive years of your life.
The adults who work here will offer you help along the journey. Please ask for our assistance. We want to be a part of your success. Along with the faculty and staff, I wish you an exciting and successful year.
Anthony N. McIver
