Principal's Message

Dear Tijeras Creek Elementary School Parents,
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year at Tijeras Creek Elementary School! We are thrilled to have your children back in our classrooms and hallways, ready to embark on a journey of learning, growth, and achievement. As we commence this academic year, it is essential to remind ourselves of our shared mission: "Together we strive to educate all students to achieve at or above grade level."
This mission is at the heart of everything we do at Tijeras Creek Elementary School. We believe that with collaboration and dedication, we can provide an enriching and empowering educational experience for every student. To achieve this, we emphasize the importance of working together—school, family, and community—united in our commitment to the success and well-being of our students.
Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) play a crucial role in promoting a positive and respectful school environment. PBIS enables us to create a safe and inclusive atmosphere where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Through teaching and reinforcing appropriate behaviors, we strive to cultivate responsible and caring individuals who exhibit respect, kindness, and responsibility in their interactions.
We firmly believe in the power of collaboration among various stakeholders, including parents, teachers, staff, and the wider community. Our success in realizing our mission is dependent on our collective efforts. Your involvement, support, and engagement in your child's education are vital elements that contribute to their academic achievement and overall well-rounded development.
Tijeras Creek Elementary School is dedicated to providing multi-tiered support to all students. We recognize that each child is unique and may have diverse learning needs. Our approach involves a tiered system of support that addresses students at different levels of intervention. This includes universal supports for all students, targeted interventions for those who need additional assistance, and intensive interventions for a smaller group requiring specialized attention. By tailoring our approach, we ensure that every child receives the assistance they need to excel academically and personally.
We encourage you to actively engage with us throughout this academic year, attending parent-teacher conferences, participating in school events, and volunteering your time and expertise. Together, we can create an environment where every student thrives and achieves their full potential.
Thank you for entrusting us with the education and growth of your children. We look forward to an incredible school year ahead.
