Meet Our Principal

Dear Tucker Families,

Welcome to our Tucker Elementary School Website! We hope you will find the information you're looking for on this page. We also have an active Tucker Elementary Facebook page where you will find information, updates, and all of the fun and exciting things going on at Tucker! Please like and follow us on Facebook @tuckerschool.

Tucker Elementary is made up of outstanding students in grades Pre-K through 8. Our faculty and staff are dedicated, caring professionals, who love and support one another as both friends and colleagues. Tucker is also blessed to have a fantastic PTO that supports the school in many ways. They are a creative, dedicated, and fun group of parents who would love to have you join them. You can message them on their Facebook page, Tucker Elementary School PTO, or email ashland.willis@choctawtribalschools.com.

Tucker Elementary is a 2020 National Beta Club School of Merit and is accredited by Cognia through the Southern Association of Colleges & Schools (SACS). Our school is a special place with warm and friendly teachers, students, parents, and staff, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be your principal. I believe in working collaboratively with staff, students, parents, and community partners in order to continue the success Tucker Elementary has achieved in past years. We provide an environment where the Choctaw heritage is taught, promoted and celebrated. Our district motto states, “Alla Momat Ikkana Chih” (“All Children Will Learn.”) We want to help each child to reach his or her fullest potential!

(As parents and educators, we must form a strong partnership to ensure that all of our Tucker Elementary students receive an exceptional education. I look forward to working with you this school year and many school years to come.)
