    Dear Spicer Family,

    Welcome to John D. Spicer Elementary home of the COLTS! This is my eleventh year to serve as principal of Spicer Elementary. It is my continued goal to lead our students and staff  to academic and social success. The teachers and staff are dedicated to providing the best for each of our students. That, coupled with the partnership of parents, makes for a successful learning environment for our students. Our website, Facebook page, Peachjar and Twitter are just a few ways to find our what is going on in your child's school, as well as in the district.

    If you are a new or returning family to Spicer, I hope you take every opportunity to be involved in your child’s education. Our PTA is a driving force at Spicer. Don’t underestimate what your involvement and membership in PTA can make in the culture of your child’s school. There are also many volunteer opportunities. Be on the lookout for e-mails from your child’s teacher, as well as the PTA newsletter. You can even join our Spicer Elementary Facebook page for the latest and greatest news about your child's school.

    It is a pleasure and a privilege to serve the community of Spicer Elementary.  I look forward to getting to know new students and their families, and reconnect with everyone that has returned. This school is a great place to make lasting memories and relationships.

    Serving students and families in BISD.

    Dr. Cheryl Waddell 

     Proud Principal of John D. Spicer Elementary
