Principal's Message

  • Dear Parents and Guardians,

    It is with great enthusiasm that I extend a warm welcome to everyone! At the heart of my educational belief is the power of a strong partnership between school and home. My most meaningful and lasting successes have happened as a result of coming together with families in a spirit of collaboration, mutual respect, and shared responsibility. It is in this spirit that I invite you to lean into us as a fellow partner in your child’s educational journey.

    Building strong relationships is the cornerstone of everything we do. We understand that every child is unique, and it is through open communication, trust, honesty, and understanding that we can tailor our support to meet the individual needs of each student. Your insights, feedback, and active involvement are invaluable in shaping an inclusive, engaging, and enriching learning environment for all. We believe in celebrating not just the achievements, but also the efforts, growth, and resilience of our students. Together, let us create an environment where every child feels valued, supported, and inspired to excel.

    Throughout the year, I look forward to embarking on this journey together, hand in hand by meeting with you during parent-teacher conferences, through volunteering opportunities, at PTA-sponsored events and meetings, or by simply dropping by for a chat, I encourage you to actively engage with us and be a part of your child's educational experience.

    Thank you for entrusting us with the privilege of shaping the minds and hearts of your children. 

    With warm regards,

    Andrea Thares
