Dear Pennoyer Families,
As your principal, my hope and vision is to continue to grow opportunities for our students in and out of the classroom, and hear and incorporate the many voices of our parents/guardians so Pennoyer is a special place that truly reflects our community. I believe that a vibrant education goes beyond just academics within the classroom walls. At Pennoyer, I continue to plan on promoting and supporting social emotional growth and functional/life skills that our students can leverage far beyond our walls and bring with them to build upon throughout their lives.
As principal of Pennoyer, I am dedicated to making sure our students feel safe and supported each and every day, while building and nurturing their capacity to find the joy in learning. We want our students to take risks, learn to problem solve, be responsible and respectful citizens, and be able to think both creatively and critically. We know that every single student has the ability to thrive in the right environment and with the right opportunities, and at Pennoyer, I’m so lucky to have a talented, passionate, and dedicated staff that puts kids first and makes our school the success that it is day in and day out.
During the school year, I plan on continuing to keep open lines of communication and collaboration with all of you. I will be sending out weekly newsletters every Friday to keep everyone informed and connected. Our theme continues to encapsulate the values I hold in high regard…Connect - Collaborate - Celebrate. My pledge as principal is that every stakeholder embodies this as part of our Pennoyer community. We need to connect with students, staff, and families in and out of the classroom, collaborate with one another and work as a team, and take time to have fun and celebrate our successes and individuality that makes us who we are.
I wish nothing but the best for everyone this school year!
