I believe our students should be enthusiastic and creative thinkers who can use available resources and technology to solve any problems, which they may encounter now or in the future.
As principal of Dr. Robert B. Ingram Elementary School, I believe success in school requires thoughtful organization and commitment from all stakeholders. Careful planning and good relationships between home and school can make your child’s experience in school an enjoyable one for all.

I encourage you to see yourselves as active partners in our learning community. Therefore, I ask that you stay informed of school events throughout the year and embrace volunteer opportunities.
There is no doubt that when home and school work together, we can make a difference in our children’s education, and ultimately their lives. Let’s all make a commitment to give our children our very best. Feel free to contact me any time with your comments, suggestions or concerns. Please know that I am honored to serve you and your children and look forward to working closely with parents and students to create a positive learning environment at Dr. Robert B.
