Meet the Principal
July 24, 2013
Dear Parents and Guardians:
It's hard to believe but it's that time of the year again - the beginning of a new school year. Welcome back! And while you aren't part of the teaching staff you are just as important to your children's education as we are.
Your children receive the best education when you and our dedicated teachers work as a team. It's a parents enthusiasm, support and involvement that inspires children to do their best; and a teacher's ability to teach what they need to learn. Together we can achieve wonderful things.
There's a lot of excitement ahead of us, including new teachers to meet, new books to read, new friends to meet and new skills to master...and I look forward to you sharing in those exciting times. As principal of our school, I know how fast time goes by. One year your child's in 1st grade and seemingly in the blink of an eye they're in middle school, or in their senior year of high school for that matter.
In closing, I encourage you to fully embrace the moment and urge you to take the time from your busy schedule to become familiar with our school, as well as create a homework-friendly home environment that will allow your children to excel.
Thank you for your commitment to your child's education and I look forward to seeing you on August 5th from 5pm to 7pm for Open House. During open house you will receive lots of important information including: class assignments, bus routes, lunch information, and instructional information for the New Year.
Don’t forget! We are encouraging the students to wear uniforms this year. All Pre K through 2nd grade students will wear Khaki pants, shorts, or skirts and gold polo style shirts. All third through fifth grade students are encouraged to wear khaki pants, shorts, or skirts and royal blue polo style shirts.
Remember school begins on August 7th at 8:00 am. If you would like your child to have break, please be sure to have them at school between 7:10am and 7:30 am.
Happy New School Year!
