I am indeed honored to be appointed as Principal at Modern Knowledge Elementary School. I feel truly blessed to be the instructional leader of such an awesome school community. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the MKES-Elementary School community. I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty years. During this time, my experiences include teaching elementary and middle school, being a high school assistant principal, an elementary school principal and a superintendent. I am a husband and father of three adult children and I therefore understand many of the hopes and dreams that we all have for our families and the importance of getting a quality education.
All our staff are eager to begin what we anticipate being an exciting year. Our goal is to continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant and builds relationships. 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. In addition, it is my responsible to ensure that your child is in a safe and nurturing learning community.
Our building theme for the 2017-2018 school year is "Community and Collaboration." Webster.com defines a community as a "unified body of individuals, people with common interests living in a particular area." Each family in this community has its own interest. Each parent is the personal advocate and cheerleader for his or her child. We both share the desire for your child to receive a quality education. Therefore, it is imperative that our community embraces the idea of doing whatever it takes to ensure the academic growth of our students. As a professional learning community, we are committed to working tirelessly to provide challenging educational opportunities for children each day. But to be successful as we can be in our learning community, it is crucial that our school team work closely with you. Collaboration with your child's teacher is a main ingredient to a healthy and successful year. Open communication is vital to ensure a successful home-school partnership throughout the year. Parental involvement is an important aspect of every child's education and is the primary factor in a students' success in school. Therefore, know that we are committed to working with your child and look forward to an exciting new school year!
