Welcome to Poinsettia Elementary

Principal's message  

Dear Poinsettia Families,

As the new Principal of Poinsettia Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome new and returning families to the 2022-2023 school year. This year we know that adventure is just around the corner and that our staff, students and families are ready to experience all that our school community has to offer. Our staff looks forward to hosting events including One Book, One School Literacy Event, Spring Art Night, and after school learning opportunities. I highly encourage all of our parents to become active members of our PTO. With your support, our staff and students can have amazing community building events, on campus enrichment opportunities, school supplies, and field trip opportunities.

In order to stay on top of all the events taking place at Poinsettia, please be sure to have an updated cell phone number(s) and email address(es) on Q Parent Connect to receive information via our Parent Square online messaging system. Lastly, don’t forget to visit our school website and add our social media platforms so you can stay regularly updated on current school news and upcoming events.
