Dear South Tamarind Families,

Welcome to a new and exciting school year!  I am confident your experience at South Tamarind will be rewarding and meaningful.  The South Tamarind staff and I are truly looking forward to working with you and providing students with the necessary skills to be successful.

I'd like to take this opportunity to express to you how excited I am to be the principal at South Tamarind!  My primary goal as an educator is to make certain each and every student is receiving a high quality educational program that will lead to both academic and personal success.  This will be accomplished through a safe, clean and organized school environment that focuses on the needs of students through the combined efforts of the South Tamarind school community. 

I would like to state I have an "open door policy" which means I invite students and parents to meet with me to discuss issues, concerns and ideas.  I strongly believe open communication is the key component to success.  Please remember I am here to offer you my support!


Rita B. Bayne, Ed.D.

Quiero decirles que tengo una póliza de "puerta abierta" lo que quiere decir es que invito a los estudiantes y padres a juntarse con migo para hablar acerca de cualquier preocupación o idea.  Yo creo muy fuertemente que la comunicación es la llave que lleva al éxito.
