Welcome Back Alexander Elementary Parents, Guardians and Community,
The beginning of the year always holds such excitement and promise, and for us it is an annual rite of passage where we open our doors and share with you our hopes and dreams for the coming year. As principal of Alexander Elementary School, it is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for the 2018 – 2019 school year. We are all excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our Mission to build a community that embraces, engages and empowers everyone, every day. Additionally, we strive to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and interest to be college and career ready.
At Alexander Elementary we have great teachers who spend hours planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. Our teachers support students with research based best practices. We work together to analyze academic data to determine current skill levels and to set goals for both school and student growth.
We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together to insure success for all our students. We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible. As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all must work together to insure that our Scholars reach their potential.
With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Alexander Elementary. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the PTO, special event participant, or member of one of our school communities, you are encouraged to be involved! Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school coincides with a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.
Your commitment to insuring that Alexander Elementary remains a successful and caring community school is awe-inspiring. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and families each day. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal. Please stop by and say hello! Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
