Welcome to the 2022/2023 school year! It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I write
this letter of introduction to you as the new principal of Cascades Elementary. I am truly
honored to become part of the JPS/Cascades community.
On behalf of the Cascades Staff, I would like to extend a warm WELCOME to our new families
and WELCOME BACK to our returning families. We hope that you were able to relax, recharge
and have fun this summer with family and friends.
All of us at Cascades Elementary are eager and excited to begin what promises to be a "GREAT"
year as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous,
relevant, and build relationships. At Cascades, we believe everyone who steps through our
doors should have a positive school experience and are excited to be here!
As a staff, we look forward to fostering a home/school partnership to ensure the success of
every Cascades Viking. We recognize that our student's success is anchored in the support they
receive from home and school. Our home/school partnership and our collective responsibility
for our student's success will yield fruitful outcomes for the year ahead.
We encourage our families to become involved in our school community by joining our Cascade
PTO and Volunteer in a classroom. We are always finding ways to involve our parents/guardians
in our learning community.
We want to share a few important dates:
Open House - Tuesday, August 23. 2022 from 5:30 – 7:00. During our open house we will share
important information about our new arrival dismissal procedures for car riders and bussers.
Join us for a fun filled evening!
First Day of School – Wednesday, August 24, 2022 ½ day for students
Thank you for your continued support as we work together as a school community to ensure
success for all Cascades Vikings.
