Dear School #5 Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Oceanside School #5.  I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of community involvement and academic success.  

I have been dedicated to the field of education for sixteen years with a specific concentration in literacy development, the teaching of writing and character development.  My most recent administrative experience has been shaped by six years as an elementary school Principal and two years as an Assistant Principal.  Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue the
legacy of success established at Oceanside School #5 by building a strong relationship with parents, students and community partners. We will focus on character education initiatives, Common Core skills, and the use of data to drive instruction to increase students’ achievement and provide challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.
All of us at Oceanside School #5 are eager to begin what promises to be the best year yet.  As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors is thrilled to be here.  It is that attitude that will enable us to create a fun and dynamic learning environment.  My door is always open and I welcome your input.  Please feel free to stop in, call or email me to discuss any concerns,
suggestions, or ideas to help make our school the best!  

As part of my Principal’s entry plan, I will email out a survey to all parents within the next few weeks.  The survey will gather feelings and input about School #5 so that we can create an action plan to make our school the best learning environment for the students.

Please carefully read the enclosed School #5 Parent Information Packet, which contains details about opening day, our school procedures, and other important information.  Grade 1 parents will receive another letter shortly, outlining specific procedures for the first few days of school.


I look forward to meeting our amazing students on the first day of school, September 1, 2016.
