Greetings,

Welcome to the Eutaw Primary School's website! I'm looking forward to a phenomenal school year that will be filled with lots of learning and growing. One of our ultimate goals for the 2016-2017 school term was to increase reading proficiency for each student. Throughout the year, our students were challenged academically and socially through various classroom activities and school wide events.  As a result, our third graders made a 23% gain in reading and a 36% gain in mathematics on the ACT Aspire Assessment. Likewise, according to the Dibels Next assessment that was administered in the fall, winter, and spring, growth was demonstrated in the area of reading for each grade level. Be sure to say congratulations to our students and the third grade teachers whenever you see them.

In addition to our faculty/staff members placing a greater emphasis on fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension, several events took place such as: the Pumpkin/Literacy Competition, Literacy Night, and Accelerated Reader Competitions. We look forward to collaborating with you as we plan for our upcoming events for the new school year. 

If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to stop by my office or give me a call at (205)372-1051. If you wish to be on a committee, be sure to let me know. You may also choose to utilize the suggestion box that is located in the foyer of the building. As always, thanks for your support, and I look forward to building a unified partnership with each of you. 

With best regards,

Sharon Jennings, Ph.D.
