    A Message from Ms. Halcott

    I’m excited to be a part of the Trimmer family as the Assistant Principal. I am dedicated to helping teachers, staff, and students have a wonderful school experience and look forward to supporting our fourth and fifth grade students. My goal is that every student, every day feels safe, happy, loved, and an integral part of our learning community.

    I have been an educator since 1999 and feel blessed to have a career that I love. Being an educator inspires me to grow myself in order to best support our Bulldogs. I have always strived to promote a love of learning amongst our students. 

    I look forward to getting to know all of our students and their families. Success in school requires a partnership between school, community and home. Please let me know how I can help you!

    With Bulldog Pride,

    Assistant Principal, Trimmer Elementary School
