Welcome Starfish Families!
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! Since March 2020 our way of doing things has changed and we have had to make some adjustments to life during COVID-19. First off, I want to introduce myself. I am Walker Cates, your new principal at Supply Elementary School. I am excited to be a part of the Starfish family and have received a warm welcome from all the staff I have had a chance to meet. I am not new to the county. I have been an administrator at Town Creek Elementary for the past eleven years, three years as the assistant principal and the last eight years as the principal. Prior to that, I taught 3rd and 4th grade in New Hanover county. I love to watch children learn and grow and I am excited to get to know each of you and your children.
Things have been busy around the school this summer. Now that decisions have been made we are ready to begin the school year! All students will participate in remote instruction for the first four and a half weeks. Teachers will begin contacting the students in their class. Please be on the lookout for information to be added to Class Dojo and other information for your child to access their remote instruction. If your child was enrolled in a Brunswick County School last school year, they may keep the device they currently have to use for their instruction. If you are new to Brunswick County Schools or the device you have no longer works, you may come by the school on August 17th, 18th, and 19th to pick up a device. Please remember to bring the power cord as well.
Our usual Open House will not be able to take place at the beginning of the school year but each grade level will be hosting a Virtual Open House on August 12, 2020. Your child’s teacher will be contacting you to let you know the how and when to join the meeting. Teachers will share information regarding instruction during the school day, expectations for completing assignments and how to contact them if you need assistance. Student attendance will be taken and grades will be given along with feedback to the student and parent to provide information about the student’s areas of strength and areas of opportunity.
For the safety of all staff and students, the front doors of the school will remain locked during the workday. If you need assistance you may call the school to schedule an appointment. New procedures will be put into place for students arriving late and those leaving early. Information regarding new safety procedures and precautions will be in the student handbook for your reference.
I look forward to meeting each of you and I want to say thank you for allowing us the opportunity to educate your child. Letters with your child's teacher's name and other important information will be mailed on Monday so be on the lookout!
Ms. Walker Cates
Principal, Supply Elementary School
