Principal Sarah Brennan

Welcome to Tiger Country and welcome back to the 2021-22 school year!  I am delighted to serve the Tynes Elementary community as your principal.

At Tynes Elementary we provide quality instruction in a safe, orderly and nurturing environment.  We maintain high academic expectations for all students and work to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves, one another, and their community.  

We are a comprehensive pre-k to sixth grade school, and our students are provided with appropriately rigorous grade level instruction in English Language Arts (ELA), mathematics, science and social studies using the adopted Clay County curricula.  Our resource team provides instruction in art, music, technology, media, and physical education.  In addition, we offer a variety of clubs and activities including chorus, track, and safety patrol to allow students opportunities to have leadership roles in their school community outside of academics.

The Tynes Elementary area is booming with growth, but the feel on campus is warm and welcoming.  We are committed to Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and work to help students grow into lifelong learners and responsible citizens.  You will see and hear the phrase Tiger P.R.I.D.E. all over our campus.  Tynes Tigers know this acronym stands for Positivity, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Effort.  Students and staff members are recognized for demonstrating these traits.  Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is an important part of your student’s education.  Students from K-6 learn important life skills such as self-regulation, goal setting, and conflict management.

Another unique characteristic of Tynes Elementary is our high percentage of students who are connected to active duty military.  We have a full time Military Family Life Counselor (MFLC) through the Department of Defense who works to support our students and their families in all stages of deployment.

We are excited to continue to collaborate with our students, parents, caregivers, business and faith partners, and the community to educate our children.  We look forward to welcoming visitors and volunteers back into our building and to establishing an active School Advisory Committee (SAC).
