It is that time of the year when summertime is beginning to wind down, most of student registration is behind us, and excitement is filling the air with the thought of the new school year approaching. I hope everyone had an amazing summer filled with enjoyable times, incredible memories, and some much needed relaxation. It is hard to believe that in just a few short weeks our building will be filled with students and staff that are ready to embark upon the 2014-2015 school year.
Our exceptional staff has been enthusiastically preparing for opening day to ensure that our children have an unbelievable year. The custodial staff has been working day and night to clean and beautify our school; our maintenance staff has been working on remodeling projects and installing new security measures; our office staff has been organizing and preparing materials that keep the school running smoothly; and our teachers and teacher aides have been in all summer setting up their classrooms for the first day! The entire staff shares the goal to create a safe, clean, nurturing and empowering environment for our children and they have definitely been successful in achieving that goal!
On a personal note, I want to express how excited I am to begin this year as principal of White Oak Intermediate. I’m looking forward to getting to know many new names and faces along the way. By working together, we can make this an exceptional year!
