First and foremost I would like to welcome everyone to the 2017/2018 school year. I never grow weary of the first day back with teachers, Open House, and, of course, the first day of school with our students. This year has been great! We have a wonderful group of students, parents, and staff. Every event that we have already had and those yet to come are only accomplished with collaboration from all of us. Based on the success we have had so far with events like Grandparent’s Day, Kindergarten Parents are Teachers, Too workshop, and homecoming, this year promises to be the greatest ever at Sallas Mahone.
Second, I would like to extend my appreciation to everyone. Thank you to our parents for the trust you demonstrate each day by allowing us to educate your children. Thank you to our teachers who work so hard to ensure that ALL students are learning in a safe environment. Thank you to my assistant principals who complete their numerous duties and responsibilities with such dedication and loyalty. Thank your to our academic coaches who provide our teachers with such useful professional learning.
My pledge to all of our parents is that we will roll up our sleeves and work every day to make sure that your children are receiving the best possible education so they can become the best they can be. We are constantly striving to improve and are never satisfied with the status quo. Our instruction is rigorous and is constantly examined along with our data to ensure that we are providing all students with a wonderful educational experience. Please do not hesitate to call my assistants or me if you are ever in need of our assistance.
