Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! I hope you have enjoyed a relaxing and fun-filled summer. As we begin the year, I am eager to meet our new and returning students and families (in person and remotely!), and to continue supporting the great work that is taking place at our school. I am committed to upholding and promoting our school’s vision: “Going above and beyond to empower children to own a dream and reach their star potential.” As principal, I view my role as working with our Stellar community to provide a safe, positive and productive learning environment for our students. My heart is to see our students surpass their potential, through a variety of learning opportunities, both in and out of school. My main goal is to have our school foster a love for learning and instill a desire, within our students, to make a positive difference in their local and global communities. I believe strongly that a solid working partnership with our students and their families is a key to educational success. I welcome you to stop by to share questions, concerns and celebrations at any time. The support of our families and community, combined with the commitment of our outstanding teaching staff, is what makes the difference between a good or an exceptional educational experience for our students. Please know that every staff member in our building recognizes how fortunate we are to work with you and your children. We thank you for this opportunity and invite you to join our family and be an active part of Stellar Elementary. Together we will encourage students to define and work towards their dreams and help grow tomorrow’s leaders.
