    Blair Family,

    On behalf of the staff, I would like to welcome you to W. A. Blair Elementary School! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure the success of our children. We are excited that your family has selected us to help your child reach his or her full potential. 

    During my time in Dallas ISD as a teacher, instructional coach, assistant principal and principal, I have witnessed the important developmental changes that children undergo during elementary school. Children become more autonomous, transitioning from "learning to read" to "reading to learn" during this short, yet significant period of their lives. 

    As principal, it is important for me that my staff, parents, and students become partners in this educational journey. I believe that it truly take a village to accomplish the best possible learning outcomes for our children and I am grateful for the opportunity to partner with you during this journey.

    Thank you for supporting your child's success at school, in the classroom, and through our parent organizations (PTO). Let's all build upon greatness by continuing our commitment to making a greater effort towards communicating with each other. If I can ever be of assistance, please email or call me. 

    With Panther Pride,

    Tenisha Allen, Principal
