Welcome! It is my privilege and honor to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year.  I am looking forward to an outstanding year of learning and growing with our students and working with our professional staff and you, our parents and community members.  I am very excited to be returning to the the Tiger community and am looking forward to all of the fantastic things that will take place this school year for your children.

My main goal on a daily basis is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe, comfortable, and supportive learning environment.  Working together as a team with our staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve his/her very best.  Every student is valued and worthy of our collective best efforts, and through our teamwork, we can together watch each child grow to their fullest potential in every aspect of their lives. 

Communication is critically important to the success of this and every school year.  Should you have questions, need assistance, or would like to discuss something important to you or your child, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I will do my best to communicate clearly and effectively, and I ask you to please utilize our various methods already in place (email, website, flyers) to stay updated on all of the wonderful opportunities provided at Little Tor throughout the year.

To that end, if you have not already done so, I encourage you to become a member of our Parent Teacher Association.  Our PTA President, Mrs. Stacey Gosman, along with the PTA Board and many dedicated volunteers, support our children and our school community through a number of programs, school events, and family-oriented functions.  These events enrich our students’ lives, and provide meaningful, fun opportunities for them to grow and learn. 

I look forward to working collaboratively with you, your children, the staff, and the Little Tor community to ensure that the school year is a fun and successful learning experience for everyone.

Best wishes for a memorable, positive, and fulfilling school year!

Dr. Matthew Younghans
