A Note from Mr. Shaffer

Dear Worcester Family,

I hope this message finds you safe and in good health! Thank you for your support, patience, and kindness! Together, we will overcome the challenges of today and create a brighter tomorrow.

I met with our teachers and staff yesterday morning. Although our meeting was virtual, it was great to see so many of the smiling faces who make Worcester a great place for students to learn and grow!

Please know we all miss our students and families greatly! We thought you might enjoy seeing us too. If so, please click below to access special messages from several members of our team.

With Sincere Thoughts,

Principal Shaffer (and the Worcester Team)

Let's Remember to be the "I" in KIND

Today, I promise to do my best.

I will make safe, respectful, and responsible choices.

I will have a positive attitude, include others, and be a kind friend.

I will be a good role model.

Encourage, Empower, and Inspire

Thank you to all of the Worcester BEEs for encouraging our students, empowering our families, and for inspiring me each and everyday!

There any many lessons that can be learned from the honeybee. For me, the importance of community and working together for the greater good is the lesson that resonates most!
