Principal's Message

  • Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Welcome! All of us at Daniels Elementary would like to make this a successful year for your child. Your active support and cooperation, combined with our best professional efforts will ensure academic success for all our students. I am proud of our staff, and I feel fortunate to work with such dedicated, talented teachers. I invite you to become involved in Daniels Elementary School, and I encourage you to visit. There is a spirit of cooperation and progress at our school that we would like to share with you.

    There will be many school activities that will help you become involved in your child's education. I encourage you to make these activities a part of your schedule. The home-school partnership is strengthened by your involvement. Please feel welcome to visit classrooms and to volunteer in them.

    The Daniels Parent Association (DPA) also invites all parents to participate in DPA activities throughout the year. 

    Not all parents or guardians can attend school functions, but all can show interest in their child's schoolwork by setting aside a few minutes each day to:


    • listen while your child describes school day activities
    • read to your child
    • listen while your child reads to you
    • help with homework
    • limit the viewing of television


    Please feel free to stop in and introduce yourself to me, or to ask a question about anything that concerns you. I look forward to working together as partners in learning.


    Leslie A. James, Principal
