Principal's Welcome

A Note from the Principal:

Welcome back for the 2020-2021 school year. I am excited to begin this school year even though it may look differently than any year before. Let me introduce myself to those who are new to our building, I have spent my entire professional career here beginning as a fifth grade teacher then serving as the Instructional Coach and now principal. It has always been my goal to build lasting relationships with students and parents of this school. To build upon that, the theme for this school year is “One School, One Family.” Our goal is to establish lasting relationships with students and families.

Last year was a successful year for our school because our students and staff worked hard to achieve their goals. This success was achieved through lots of hard work, dedication and persistence. Beyond our academic success, our Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) team has crafted a list of specific behaviors for each area in our school to teach to our students. These behavioral expectations are meant to teach our students to Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe in every area of the school including the bus. As a school, we strive to challenge our students to reach new heights in their educational experience. We will build upon our success and look to achieve greater heights this year.

Parents, your support and involvement are vital to your child’s success so I encourage you to come join us throughout the year at school events, lunch or even sign up to be a classroom volunteer. We welcome your suggestions that will help our school become greater!

Again, I am thrilled to serve the Panther family this year and appreciate your support! The staff is looking forward to a successful year and building of relationships! Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of any assistance to you.
