Principal's Corner

Greetings Ram Parents!!!

I want to officially welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year for Charles F. Elementary School!!! I hope you and your family had an enjoyable summer with the opportunity to refresh before the start of this year. I want to thank each of you for getting our scholars registered and ready to learn. I am looking forward to a great partnership with you and our scholars. For some of you, this is your first year as a Ram Parent while others are returning parents. Thank you in advance for your cooperation, participation, and support.


Our overall school theme is To Infinity and Beyond: We L.E.A.D. (Love learning. Excel in all we do. Achieve goals together. Do what is right).  I am a firm believer there is greatness in each of us; I desire for each of us to tap into our individual greatness for the success of our school.


I am super excited about this school year where highly-effective teaching and much-needed learning will go forth daily. We will continue with our initiatives from the previous school year as well as implement new ones. I am eager about serving and supporting each of you as we embark upon another year of learning and growing together.

I look forward to meeting and working with each of you this school year. I want you to know that it takes ALL of us working together to make Charles F. Hard Elementary School better, stronger, and smarter. Our overall goal is to meet our scholars where they are and give them what they need—academically, culturally, socially and emotionally. We have high expectations for our scholars and expect them to Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Resourceful.

I encourage you to keep the lines of communication open, consistent, and positive with teachers, support personnel and staff. Let’s make this the best year yet. I am all in, and I am counting on you to be as well. If I can be of further assistance or provide you with additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me at (205) 432-3300 or email me at Again, welcome and thank you for being a Ram Parent!!!
