Hello Highland Park Students and Families!
Welcome to another terrific year at Highland Park Elementary. This is a very special place with students of all abilities and characteristics that make it a rich environment in which to learn. In over 20 years in education, I have not worked with a more caring group of teachers and staff. They all strive to ensure that each student achieves their academic potential while attending to the entire well-being of each student. We also have challenging school goals to reach, but we make sure to have fun along the way. Last year, Highland Park students demonstrated solid gains in our SOLS and I look forward to that same effort this year.
We are a school that appreciates strong support from our Congregations in Action and PTA organizations. We would not be as strong without either group and we love their involvement. Traditions supported by these groups such as our Walkathon, Fun Day, Talent Show and countless activities give Highland Park it's special character.
I am excited about another amazing year here for 2016-17. I find joy in greeting students each morning, seeing them challenged to learn new things daily, and sharing together in our successes. I am grateful to be a part of this community of learners.
Welcome again and never hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments or kudos,
