Principal's Message



Dear Parents and Students,

This school year is moving right along! Thank you for realizing the importance of your child receiving a quality education. Working together as partners in education, we will see positive results in your child's academic performance. Please continue to work with your child on new skills and homework. We are asking parents to set aside time to read with your child daily. Please dedicate 15-20 minutes of reading each night. Allow your child to read to you and remember to ask questions to make sure your child understands what he/she is reading. We are focusing on developing “Strong Readers!” Please become familiar with expected Lexile Ranges by the end of the school year.

3rd grade – 520L to 820L

4th grade – 740L to 940L

5th grade -  830L to 1010L

We encourage parents to continue to check the daily communication folders. You are welcome to contact your child's teacher at 478-237-7266, if there are any questions about your child's performance on assignments or assessments.

Please complete the Georgia Parent Survey on our Facebook page or click here. Thank you for your participation in our Georgia Parent Survey as we respect your view. We value your input and are constantly looking for ways to make improvements to our school. Completing this survey will allow us to reevaluate our current practices and look for meaningful ways to increase student achievement for all students and enhance professional learning for our staff.  

If you have questions or concerns please contact me at vwatkins@emanuel.k12.ga.us or 478.237.7266. 

Thank you for partnering with us in your child's education



Valorie Watkins, Principal
