Welcome to 12th Street Elementary

Welcome Letter from Mr. B

Dear 12th Street Family and Friends,

We would like to welcome you all to a wonderful year here at 12th Street Elementary School.  We are proud to say that 12th Street is home to nearly 550 students, from grades Young Fives through fifth grade.  Our wonderful staff is here to provide each child with an opportunity to grow and be successful academically, socially, and emotionally. We strive to meet each child’s needs, via a curriculum that provides differentiated instruction, along with creating a nurturing environment that fosters love and support of each other.  

Here at 12th Street, we utilize our P.A.W.S. expectations to create a positive learning environment.  These guidelines are the foundation for how we work and associate with each other in our 12th Street community.

Practice Kindness
Act Respectfully
Work Responsibly

We will continue to build our community, establish our traditions, and help our students learn and succeed at the highest levels possible for each child.  12th Street is an amazing place to be because of the commitment, dedication, and support that our parents, teachers/staff, and all stakeholders have invested.  If you have any questions or would like a tour, please contact our office at(269) 323-6900.

Darryl D. Blasingame (Mr. B)
