Upcoming Principal Chats

In an effort to gather feedback from our families, I will be holding three virtual "Principal Chat" opportunities. The purpose of these meetings is to solicit answers to the following key questions:

  • What programs and/or systems are working well at this school?
  • What do you hope to get out of me as a leader?
  • What are some of the roles that parents can play in supporting the improvement of the school?
  • What is the one thing that you would like to see happen before the end of this school year that would let you know the school is moving in the right direction?

Please see the dates and times below. Hopefully, one of these opportunities will accommodate your schedule. I look forward to "seeing" and listening to everyone!

  • August 3, 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
  • August 3, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • August 5, 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

To join these meetings, please use Google Meet information below.

While you may be tempted to ask questions about our return in the fall, I would like to keep the focus of these meetings on developing our long-range partnership and the success of our school.

As additional information becomes available about what the upcoming school year will look like, I will communicate that information to you in a timely manner. Please continue to trust us with your most valuable assets, your children. We will continue to ensure they have a safe and nurturing school environment, regardless of the setting.

Thank you for being our partners in education.

We will have a bin located at the front of the building to return any library books you may have. You can return books Monday - Thursday, 8:30 - 3:00.
