Principal's Corner

Dear Parents and Guardians: 

Welcome to Fahari L. Jeffers Elementary School where every child will feel magnificent and rare every day. 

My name is Dr. Shawna Codrington, and it is a pleasure to serve you and your children as the Principal of Fahari L. Jeffers Elementary School for the 2023-2024 school year.

Teachers and staff have been working hard and are eager to meet you and your child/children! We will have a pioneering, historic year ahead of us, one that will be filled with learning, innovation, and joy! We look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces very soon! 

Our goal will be to ensure Fahari L. Jeffers is a 21st Century school where all students will be models of good character, embrace diversity, set high expectations, and are empowered to be confident and self-aware. We believe that the best education occurs in a school comprised of students, teachers, and families drawn from diverse backgrounds. With that said, we will strive to create a truly inclusive school: one where students and adults are welcomed and supported, and where all faces, voices, and experiences are reflected and valued.

We are excited for all of you to be contributing members of our new school community. We will strive to have parents and staff work harmoniously to create exceptional learning environments for children in a safe and welcoming atmosphere.

 I look forward to working with you to build and maintain professional learning community that fosters mutual collaboration, respect, and kindness. I believe that a trusting relationship and continuous communication between parents and the school is essential for student success.

As we progress through the year, information will be sent home via electronic flyers, school messages (telephone and email), our school website, school blog, and Class Dojo. Stay up-to-date, check-in and follow our journey via newsletter-style updates on our blog.

Thank you for trusting us with your children. 

We look forward to our partnership in making Fahari L. Jeffers Elementary School a place of educational excellence where all children will achieve.
