    Welcome Families

    I am very excited and honored to have the opportunity to be your partner in education this year. I would like to welcome you and your family to Rankin Elementary School. We have a great staff that are here for you and your family to ensure you have a wonderful experience at Rankin. Our parents are an integral part of our educational team that supports student achievement. Our community school belongs to our families and we encourage you to be involved in any way you can. We always welcome and need parent volunteers. Parent club is a wonderful support to our school. The parent club is also a great way for you to be involved with other parents or guardians. There is free child care during our meetings. Watch the bulletin for meeting dates and times.

    Our students have had a great deal of success in meeting state learning targets. Our learning environment is safe and orderly and we are dedicated to creating an environment of opportunity and success for all students.

    We use a Positive Behavior Intervention Support model for establishing a safe and orderly environment. This program begins each year with teaching students the expectations for each area of the building. It is our hope that students will gain a deeper understanding of acceptable behavior and meet those expectations. Students not meeting those expectations may be asked to visit our Responsibility/PBIS room. Students who are referred to the Responsibility Room due to inappropriate choices in behavior will work with a mentor to make a behavior plan for better choices. We enjoy the positive impact that PBIS has on the safe and orderly learning environment at Rankin Elementary.

    I look forward to meeting all of you at our Open House on September 6th and partnering with you to make this an enjoyable and successful school year for you and your family. If there is ever anything I can do throughout the year to assist you, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for trusting us with your most prized possession, your child.

    Your Partner in Education,
    Laura Garrison
