Welcome to the 17-18 School Year!

Dear North Pointe Rocket Families,

As principal of North Pointe Elementary, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year! I am excited to begin my 3rd year as principal with this amazing campus

. We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms. It is our mission to be the trailblazing leader in character driven education, to instill mutual respect for diversity, foster social responsibility, and facilitate self-directed learning to achieve personal success through a learning community distinguished by a safe and nurturing environment, meaningful relationships and community partnerships and we look forward to partnering with you to achieve it. We set high goals, and we work hard to achieve them.

Our staff at North Pointe Elementary is a community of professionals. We all—teachers, administrators, school counselors, support staff and the many others working with us—are collaborating to create a safe, supportive, welcoming learning community where all students are treated fairly and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Families and other community members play a critical role as partners in supporting both your students at home and work in the schools. We look forward to working with you throughout the year to make important decisions that impact both your child as an individual and the school as a whole. As a start to this partnership, we hope you will read with your student every night and take advantage of opportunities to become involved on the campus.

North Pointe Elementary is a wonderful learning community. I feel so privileged to be a part of it. This is a very special place, and my staff and I appreciate the trust that you’ve shown in us by sending your children here every day. We will do our best to ensure they have a fulfilling, happy and safe year.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at 281-284-5900 if you have any questions or concerns. I am looking forward to a great school year!
