Hi families! This year, I am working to form a committee of families to participate in our Patrick Henry Parent Support Group. My goal is to meet with parents once a month virtually. I will provide an agenda to discuss current events about Patrick Henry and upcoming events within the community. I want to create a safe space for families to have an open discussion for better understanding in how to create support between school and home. If you are interested in joining, please contact the main office or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Keep the school and all of its students and staff safe at all times
- Manage the Leadership Team
- Evaluate all staff
- Nurture relationships with stakeholders
- Manage the school budget
- Provide professional development and coaching
- Set goals for the school's academic growth
- Develop family relationships and support children's safety and continued learning at home
Some of my favorite parts of the day include:
- Building relationships with students to make sure they always feel safe and welcome at Patrick Henry
- Observing in classrooms to see the learning happening first hand
- Supporting teachers with big or small tasks such as purchasing supplies, making copies, subbing in classrooms, or providing treats to let the staff know I care about them
- Checking in on the attendance of our students and staff to challenge everyone to be at Patrick Henry as much as possible for their learning, growth, and development
A few highlights from this year include:
- Leading professional development with our staff and making sure they feel like they are part of a mission to give our students the very best every day
- Creating a new Teachers' Lounge for our staff to have a place to relax and prepare for their lessons
- Opening two new preschool classrooms with two new preschool teachers who already love Patrick Henry and our students
- Celebrating the first day of school and welcoming all of our new and returning families back to Patrick Henry
- Treating the Patrick Henry staff to not one but two free Cardinals games already!
- Welcoming parents and families back for in-person Open House!
- Seeing our students already show reading and math growth on the STAR assessment
- Welcoming grandparents into Patrick Henry to celebrate Grandparents' Day on September 12th
- Celebrating the incredibly hard work of our staff and students that led to our two recognitions as a Missouri Green School and one of America's Healthiest Schools
Congratulations, STAR Winners!
