Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Community Members,

As your newly-appointed principal, I am very honored and excited about continuing the legacy of strong leadership at Barksdale Elementary.  My goal is to continue to hold our students to high standards of success and expectations while building strong partnerships with our families and the community.

Throughout the school year, there will be many opportunities for you to come work and play with your child at school. Please visit our website, review your child’s communication folder, and listen out for phone messages for upcoming events and activities.

I look forward to working with you to continue the great things we have going at Barksdale!

Warmest regards,

Dr. Jill Murphy
