Welcome To A New School Year!
 A Message from the Principal's Desk

Octavia Hopkins



Hello James Mosher Elementary Family!

Welcome to a new and exciting school year! I hope you had a wonderful summer break, filled with opportunities to learn and grow. After serving in the role of Managing Principal during the previous school year, I look forward to my role as permanent Principal and commit myself to giving the very best I have for this phenomenal school community. The staff is thrilled that you have entrusted your children’s education to us. We will make every effort to help your child achieve academically and socially this year. It is our goal to create an enriched learning environment that engages each student. Of course, we need and welcome your support and cooperation. You play a key role in the academic success of our students; therefore, communication between the school and parents is critical.

James Mosher Elementary School has an excellent teaching staff with a wealth of knowledge. The staff is dedicated to building a safe, compassionate community of lifelong learners who are scholars, creators, critical thinkers and problem solvers. We continue to be committed to doing our part in ensuring your child achieves academic excellence; and we look forward to working with you to guarantee that our goal is achieved.

As the leader of our James Mosher Family, I strongly believe that every child can learn and achieve the highest level of academic success with the proper preparation and support. To ensure a successful school year, please:

Make your child’s prompt attendance to school a priority –



Make sure your child wears his/her uniform EVERYDAY


Allot time for reading and practicing basic math facts with your child on a nightly basis


Our instructional program will be far more effective with your active participation. Please send your children to us well behaved, on time, equipped with the proper materials, and ready to learn. We will send them home to you prepared to meet the challenges of the future. Your presence is welcomed and greatly needed! Together we will make this an awesome year!
