Title 1 Annual Meeting/Open House

Please join us on Thursday, September 26th at 5:30 p.m. for our annual Title One Meeting and Open House! We have valuable information to share with you about our school, how we help your child and what you can do at home to enable your child to be as successful as possible! All students that attend Open House will earn a point for their house! Let’s see which house has the most show up!

Welcome New Students!

We welcome all our new students to Caldwell! Registration hours are 7:30 am – 9:00 am Monday thru Friday each week.

Volunteer Background Check Fee to Remain at $25

The Polk County School Board has decided that the fee to cover volunteers’ background checks, as well as their badge and handbook, will remain $25 through the end of the calendar year.

Polk County Public Schools will be using more extensive volunteer background checks as part of our security measures to protect students and staff. The district will incur an additional charge for the statewide and national background checks.

However, through the end of 2018, the cost to volunteers will remain $25. We are exploring other funding sources to help offset the cost of background screening for volunteers on an ongoing basis. More information will follow.

For more information on volunteering with Polk County Public Schools, please visit our website: www.polkschoolsfl.com/getinvolved.

2018 – 2019 House Champions

Congratulations to the students in the House of Sans Peur! They are the House Champions for 2018 – 2019!

Welcome To Our Family!

Caldwell Elementary staff are committed to giving every child on a campus a powerful day of learning. We love to create engaging experiences for our students and you will regularly see our staff dressed in costumes, playing games, singing and snapping pictures with our students!

We believe in telling our story about the magical and powerful things happening on campus during the day. You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the positive things we are doing with our school family.

YOU are a part of our story! Share your positive stories and help others see how Caldwell is positively impacting children and our community!

Our staff and students are each a member of a ‘house’. Each house brings a different strength to create ONE SCHOOL. During the year, each house can earn points for their house and we recognize a house leader at the end of each 9 weeks.

The Forte House means STRONG. Their color is black and their symbol is a fort.

The El Mejor House means THE BEST. Their color is grey and their symbol is two thumbs up crossed.
