Greetings Falcon Families,

Whether you are a new, or returning family, I want to warmly welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year. As I begin my fifth year as the proud principal of C.J. Hicks Elementary, I am beyond excited about the first day of school as well as the days, weeks, and months ahead. This school year promises to be positive and productive; and I am confident that we will work together to ensure that C.J. Hicks is a great place for everyone to work, learn, and grow.

To stay well informed throughout the school year, be sure that you create a Parent Portal account in Infinite Campus, sign-up to receive Remind messages, check your child’s red communication folder each Wednesday, listen to the Sunday messages, read The Falcon Flyer each month, maintain an open line of communication with your child’s teacher, sign-up for a parent-teacher conference each semester, and attend all school events with pride.

Research has shown that your child's regular attendance may be the greatest factor influencing his/her academic success. Please commit to sending your child to school on time each day that your child is feeling well. For your convenience, we have a before school program that opens at 6:00 am, with a fee of $30 per week. Car riders may enter the building beginning at 7:05 am. Our instructional day will begin promptly at 7:35 am. Being on time for school is the best way for our Falcons to be prepared for a full day of teaching and learning. 

Early checkout ends at 1:10 pm and dismissal begins at 2:10 pm each day. Please be certain that your child’s teacher is aware of how they will get home each day. It is safest when the afternoon mode of transportation remains consistent. Please determine if your child will be a car rider, bus rider, or attend our M.O.R.E. after school program. There is a fee of $75 per week for the M.O.R.E. after school program and the last pick-up is at 6:30 pm. To register for our before and/or after school program, visit the CJH webpage.

Throughout the school year, teachers will send a reminder when school supplies need to be replenished. Please visit the CJH webpage to access our school supplies lists by grade level. While there, please also take some time to browse our webpage and become familiar with it as we will keep the information updated regularly. If you have questions or concerns, please call the school first, and we will be happy to assist you.

Remember that today, and every day, is a great day to be a Falcon, I am proud to be your principal, and I love you. Thank you for choosing C.J. Hicks Elementary.
