Welcome to a new school year!
I am so excited to be principal at this great school. The staff and I are ready to begin our year and have high expectations for our students. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors; staff, students, and parents, are excited to be here. This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment.
Our theme for the 2015-2016 school year is "At Schallert, we are “OWL”some learners." The staff members of Schallert Elementary are excited about preparing our students for the road to college and beyond. At Schallert, we are committed to working tirelessly to provide challenging educational opportunities for children each day. But to be successful, we need your help. You are a special and unique part of our learning community. Collaboration with your child's teacher is a main ingredient to a healthy and successful year. In addition, there are many ways in which you can participate in school. Volunteering to work in the classroom, chaperoning field trips, becoming a member of our PTA, and assisting with many activities, are just a few things that you can do to make a difference. This year we are really emphasizing students being in school. Our attendance last year was 93%, and this year we want to increase that to 95%. Attendance is extremely important and if your child is not in school, they are not learning what they need to know in order to be successful in the next grade level. Please help make attending school a top priority in your home.
Schallert Elementary students deserve the best. I am passionate about my mission as principal, and I will make decisions that are in the best interest of your child. At the end of the day, our job is to continue to strive for excellence and make Schallert Elementary School world class.
If I can ever be of assistance, please call or email me. It is through being a collaborative learning community with consistent, honest, and open communication that I can best serve our students. Thanks for the opportunity to serve our GREAT community as we welcome each of you. Have a fantastic year!
