Principal’s Message

Pascal  Principal Pascal’s Welcome Message

Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year at Tuckahoe Elementary, home of the Sliders!  I am excited to serve as Principal and work with all the members of our community.  Our staff works hard to provide an exemplary instructional program, and our focus is student success and meeting the needs of the whole child. We strive for students to experience a well-rounded program that helps them harness their uniqueness and strengths in a safe, supportive environment.

We have a dedicated PTA and tremendous parent support, and I encourage families to take an active role in our community activities. For more information on our PTA and how to join, please follow the tab on our home page.

As we embark on this year, my focus with staff and the community centers around building relationships, communication, and professionalism.  I strongly believe that by maintaining open, honest communication with one another, and treating each other respectfully as professionals, we are likely to develop relationships with one another based on trust and common goals.  I encourage parents to communicate with their children’s teachers as questions arise, so that answers and/or resolutions can be explored together.

We are always working toward improving our modes of communication.  The Tuckahoe home page is being updated more regularly, and staff members now have their own pages. Our official Tuckahoe Facebook page can be found at www.facebook.com/APSTuckahoe, and many staff members including Dr. Legagneur and I are posting to Twitter (@TuckPrinc, @TuckahoeAP). Our monthly Tuckahoe Times newsletter will be published on the first Monday of the month.

I look forward to working with the students, staff, and parents at Tuckahoe this year and building upon the successes for which we have worked hard. Have a great 2017-2018! Tuckahoe Rocks!

Mitch Pascal
