• congratulations principal cardoza

    Greetings Eagle Families!

    It is with great excitement that I announce that I am the new Principal of Susie E. Tolbert! I have served as the Assistant Principal at Susie E. Tolbert since 2020 and am grateful to continue this work in our community. I have served as an educator in Duval County Public schools since 2008 and have had the pleasure of working in many capacities. I started my journey as a 7th and 8th grade Language Arts teacher, worked as a Reading Coach and Assistant Principal. I take pride in making relationships with students and families and will continue to do so to create strong partnerships in education. I am elated to be YOUR Principal. 
    The school theme for 2024-2025 is "Four Houses. One Tolbert. Going for the Goal." This year will be extraordinary as we reach for an "A." Last year brought unforeseen challenges and we are looking forward to creating meaningful goals to achieve educational excellence for all students. We need YOU to partner with us as we cross the finish line in FIRST place! We will continue with the House System this year; a fun PBIS system that promotes team work, collaboration, relationships and FUN!
    We are a uniform school. Please visit www.totalimpactjax.com/susie-e-tolbert-elementary-school  to order school shirts.  Students must wear khaki, blue, or black pants or shorts and the grade level uniform shirt. If you have any questions, please call our front office and we can assist you. Please ensure you send your students to school wearing their uniform daily. Clothing with tears or rips, open toe/backless shoes, non-religious head dressings will not be allowed. Please send students to school with sweaters, not hoodies as the hoods cannot be worn in the building for safety reasons. 
    School hours are from 8:24am-3:15pm. Supervision for our students starts at 8:00am. Please do not drop students off before this time. We will continue to update our website with announcements and news you need to know.  If you prefer social media, check us out on Facebook and Instagram. 
    We are looking forward to a great year!
    Amanda Cardoza, Principal
