Welcome to Anderson, A School of High Performance!


July 28, 2020


Dear Parents and Guardians,

I hope everyone in the Anderson Family is safe and well.  I am sure, like me, you feel that we are in some of the most difficult and uncertain times. This pandemic has caused isolation, financial hardship, illness and death around the world.

Regardless of our current status, we are still the Anderson Family, staying Anderson Strong! As you know, August 10, 2020 is the first day for students online. This week, your child’s teacher will contact you to make an introduction and to find out what tools, support and resources you may need for virtual learning. In addition, your child’s teacher will give you the laptop and consumable pick up dates and times. 

There will be several ways to communicate with you:  the CCPS website, Anderson’s website, individual teacher webpages, Facebook, Twitter, Google Classroom, Class Dojo and robocalls, just to name a few.  The Anderson website will be updated constantly, so please check the site several times during the week. We ask that you are patient with us as we adjust for the 100% Virtual Learning Environment; this is new to all of us!

Finally, in the Virtual Learning Environment, there will be three ways that teachers will deliver instruction:

Synchronous learning - refers to all types of learning in which learner(s) and instructor(s) are in the same place, at the same time, in order for learning to take place.

Asynchronous learning- instructors usually set up a learning path, which students engage with at their own pace… different spaces, times, etc. particular to each learner.

Unplugged learning- Students will not meet face to face with the teacher and may have to step away from technology to complete the learning task. For example, the teacher will give directions for an assignment or project and the student will complete work on their own time and pace.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.  The best way to contact me is via email as I am able to respond more quickly. My email address is  You may also call me at (678) 951-2659.

 Once again, welcome back and know that I am honored to serve as the principal of Anderson Elementary in this uncharted territory. It is a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, students, teachers, and other stakeholders care for each other and strive to build a positive relationship that support academic and social growth.
