Message from the Principal 

Welcome back! This is the beginning of my third year at Nowlin; while for some of you it is another year and for others it is your very first experience.We are a great community locally as well as an active learning community.  Learning needs to be our number one priority and we need to work together to accomplish this. We need to work together to increase our learning community by reading, writing and practicing math skills every night.

We will be implementing the WATCH D.O.G.S. program this year and hope to get all of our dads or significant male figures involved in the day to day running of our school.  The school PTO is also a valuable resource for parents looking for opportunities to volunteer. We will continue to implement P.B.I.S. as our school and classroom behavior management system.  As you can see there are many ways to become involved in the Nowlin Elementary community.
I look forward to meeting all of you through the course of the year. Happy 2013-2014 school year!!!

Ms. Rita Rauch
Nowlin Principal
