Principal's Letter

Greetings and Welcome Talala Families,


 I am so excited to leap into what I know will be an amazing school year.  I trust the summer brought lots of exploration to new things, people and places, as well at the anticipation of returning to the 2017-2018 school year.

 As you all are aware our start time is 9:00 am and dismissal is 3:35 pm.  I am opening the invitation to join our P.T.O at Talala!  Feel free to contact the office for those seeking to actively participate. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a soon-to-be member of the PTO, or a special event volunteer, you are encouraged to be involved!  Your participation in your child’s education coincides with a greater likelihood of both academic and social success, it is valued immensely.

 This will begin my fourth year as principal of Talala.  It is my goal to ensure a high-quality instruction, as well as provide an engaging and safe environment for your children. I would like to welcome our new staff members to Talala, we are very excited to have you join our team of exceptional   professionals.  I am very proud of our dedicated, driven, and devoted staff.  We will continue to strive towards excellence as we provide a first-class learning experience for our students coupled with a positive, highly-productive, and uplifting school community.

It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school.  You will receive consistent communication from your child’s teacher, monthly school newsletters, current information on our district/school web page as text updates from the principal using the Remind app.  If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

I am looking forward to furthering our work together as we move Talala Elementary over and beyond our greatest expectations.  Here’s to a spectacular new school year!



     Mrs. Michelle Johnson
