Principal's Message

Dear Bracker Parents,

Welcome to Robert M. Bracker Elementary School home of the Dolphins. We are proud of our dedicated, experienced, and highly qualified staff and enthusiastic learners!

It is our belief that it “Takes a village to raise a child.” As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us, the school and the community, must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for all our students. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.

With that in mind, we invite you to be an active participant at Bracker Elementary School.  Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.

It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. We will send home up-to-date information to you though the weekly “Monday Folder” and provide information on our website. 

If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email: ; by phone (520)377-2886 or stop in an see me.  I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.
