     Welcome Families to the 2020-2021 School Year!                                                                                                                                       Mrs. Dunbar
    First, let me thank all of my returning families for the way you responded to the abrupt online learning this past spring.  No one could have imaged that schools would remain closed after Spring Break.  I am proud of our teachers and staff, our students, parents and community for the way we all came together to commit to providing continous instruction and ensuring all homes had daily meals. 
    As we are about to open the new school year, I know this is a difficult time for parents.   The usual back to school rountine has been altered and there are still concerns of reopening schools while we are still in the COVID-19 pandemic.  While we are in the business of educating children, our first priority is the safety of everyone at Sadie T. Tillis.  We will continue to follow the guidelines of our district's re-opening plan.  On the same lines, our teachers and staff are committed to providing quality standards base instruction.  Regardless if your child will start off the year with face to face instruction or through virutal learning, we will overcome these challenges and provide the best possible educational experience to all children.  
    Our school theme is Reach for the Stars!  It is our goal for every child to establish learning goals and to work hard at meeting and exceeding them.  I look forward to working with you and your children this school year.  There are amazing things happening at Sadie T. Tillis Elementary...Watch us GROW!!!
