Dr. Raso, Principal

It is with great pride that I welcome you to Surrarrer Elementary School.  Our school is a positive learning community in which students strive to do their best academically while exhibiting good citizenship.  The purpose of this handout is to outline our expectations at Surrarrer Elementary School.  As we proceed through the year, please do not hesitate to call the school with questions or concerns, as well as with positive comments.  Communication between school and home is essential for a successful school year.  I look forward to working with both you and your child.
