Message from our Principal,
To our Nixon Coyote Family,
I would like to welcome everyone to Dr. Nixon Elementary for the 2020-2021 school year! Whether you are a returning Coyote, or new to our school, we are excited to see you in August! Unfortunately, for the 20/21 school year, we might not be ablet to continue some of our great traditions such as Fall Festival and Chili Cook-Off to name a few. Don't worry though, as soon as social distancing guidelines are lifted, we will bring back those wonderful activities. We will continue to seek opportunities and ways to bring some fun to our year, and looking for new opportunities to engage not only our students, but parents in fun and exciting ways- even if they are virtual.
As we kick off the new school year, we want to encourage positive communication and collaboration amongst school, home, and community. My door is always open, and I welcome your questions, concerns, and feedback about school activities. Or communication modes may be different this year, we can accommodate you in persion- but by appointment only, or throught email, social media, or even ZOOM/WebEx videoconferencing. In addition, our Assistant Principal, when named, is also available to provide support. Our hope is to establish school-home partnership that is designed to meet the educational and social/emotional needs of all students.
We have many people on campus to help meet the needs of our students, such as our Military Family Liaison, Julia James; and our Parental Engagement Leader, Stephannie Young. They are here to help you and know how to connect our families to other great resources throughout EPISD and El Paso.
Wishing everyone a fantastic school year,
Principal, Dr. Nixon Elementary
Christine Miles, Principal
