Welcome to Joaquin Elementary!

The staff at Joaquin Elementary welcomes you and your family to the 2019-2020 School Year.  We are committed to doing all we can to make this school year a successful experience for every student.  We firmly believe that a home/school partnership is necessary for the success of all of our students. 

Learning is not always an easy process.  It involves sharing ideas, making mistakes, and attempting new experiences.  Learning involves hard work by the teacher, the parent, the principal, but most importantly the student. 

At Joaquin Elementary, we value and challenge each student and provide opportunities for success.  Instruction is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills.   Our students’ success is the center of all we do.

Research and experience show us that a parent’s/guardian’s involvement in a child’s education is directly related to his/her success in school.  To maximize your child’s success, emphasize the importance of education through the following:

  • Ensure that your child is at school on time each day.
  • Attend parent/teacher conferences and school events.
  • Monitor your child’s homework daily.
  • Expect and support positive behavior at school.
  • Read with your child or encourage your child to read daily.

I look forward to partnering with you to make this an exciting and successful year for our students.  Thank you in advance for your support and commitment.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (936) 269-3128 ext. 241 or

Your partner in education,
Sherry Scruggs
Joaquin Elementary Principal
