Time is flying by for me in my fourth year as Erie Elementary Principal. Life is a busy blur, particularly during the holiday season! I’m sure many of you parents feel the same way. As the holiday season approaches, I hope you share my goal of taking some time to reflect, being appreciative, and having some meaningful time with family and friends. In education, we are thankful for the opportunities to impact young lives. Our students are the reason we’re here. Their academic achievement and progress is the school’s mission.
At Erie Elementary we have much to be thankful for. We first thank our parents. We appreciate your support and the encouragement you offer your children at home throughout the school year. Thanks also to our Parents’ Club for the many purchases they make for teachers during the school year and for sponsoring the December Secret Santa shopping activity for our students.
As we approach the mid point of the 2013-2014 school year, Erie Elementary teachers continue to work hard in order to teach to the new Common Core State Standards. We will continue to forge ahead by increasing our use of technology for future PARC assessments and teaching.
Lastly, as we enter this season of giving, think hard about your gifts to your children. The greatest gift—the gift that keeps on giving—is education.
Yours in Education,
Erie Elementary Principal
