Richard Stone, Principal's Address
Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:


     If you are new to the Hazlehurst, Jeff Davis County area, welcome! You have just entered into a very special school at Jeff Davis Elementary.   Hazlehurst is a close-knit educational community that promotes the academic and social development of all students in a safe, friendly environment.   We will attempt each day to help you instill many positive qualities into your children.  We will do everything in our power at all times to ensure their safety.  I am honored and humbled to be the principal of this school, as this year will be my first year to serve this school in this capacity.

     Our dedicated staff at Jeff Davis Elementary serves approximately 700 students in grades 3-5. In addition to the core curriculum, the school offers gifted and learning support services, reading support, speech and language support, hearing itinerant services, guidance, and instructional support services. Jeff Davis Elementary students experience daily instruction in one of these specialty areas: art, music, physical education, library, and technology. Parents/Guardians are always welcome at our school. We view our parents/guardians as equal partners in providing our children with meaningful educational experiences. Further, we encourage you to become active participants in school programs and classroom activities.

     There are many ways to support your child, such as volunteering to help in the classroom, volunteering for the PTO or attending one of our many school programs. We certainly understand many of you lead busy lives, and it is often difficult to volunteer at school. Just as important as volunteering is a nightly routine of reading to your child, talking about their day, and getting them prepared for the next day of school.

I am thrilled to be part of such an outstanding team!   We invite you to join our community as we work together to best serve our students!  Please feel free to contact me at any time if you have a suggestion or concern.    I look forward to working with you and your children!
