Dear Inverness Families & Community:

Welcome Back! 
I hope you are enjoying a wonderful summer.
I am enthusiastic as I begin my third year as Principal of Inverness Elementary School. I am looking forward to a great school year filled with excitement, student achievement, enthusiasm, school spirit, and progress.

All signs point to another incredible and productive school year!! Our skilled and devoted staff is already planning and preparing for your child(ren). We are indeed a joyous and caring staff with the common goals of nurturing responsible, caring students and promoting high-level learning.

New Staff
Each year brings positive change. This includes a few additions to our staff. We are delighted to welcome the following new staff to the Inverness Elementary School Family this year:

·  Coach Terence Harrington: 3rd-5th Math and Boys Basketball Coach

·  Kimberly McCormick: 6th- 8th ELA and Choir

·  Carla Townsend/Mary Ryas: Pre-K

School will begin Monday, August 5, 2019, at 7:25 am. All students will be dismissed at 3:15 pm. This schedule will be strictly enforced this year.

Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year. Your commitment to insuring that Inverness Elementary remains a celebrated and successful school is awe-inspiring. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families again. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children.
