As we prepare to kick off the beginning of the 2015-16 school year, I’m certain that our students are experiencing many emotions….excitement for new teachers and friends, melancholy for the end of summer vacation, perhaps apprehension about the unknown in the upcoming grade level, to name just a few. I think back to my own childhood, remembering how September would bring much ado with new school clothes, book bags, lunchboxes, and the anticipation of the homeroom assignment letter! While much may have changed in the educational landscape with new standards, teacher evaluation systems, PARCC assessments, and the like…much remains the same. I sincerely hope that this time finds your child filled with hopefulness for the new school year, that our families are winding down this summer with the not-too-distant memories of a wonderful summer, and that each and every one of our students comes back to school knowing that our staff of passionate educators is ready and waiting to help make a difference in their lives.
We are INSPIRED, UNITED, PREPARED…..Soaring to Excellence!
See you on September 8th!
Lisa Hannah, Principal
