I moved my family to the Elmwood district several years ago when I accepted the position of Elementary Principal in August of 2006. While familiar with the daily operations of an elementary system, I was naïve to the operations at a rural setting. I am still in awe of the community at Elmwood.
The people of this amazing community give unconditional support to me and the elementary staff. Countless hours are put forth on behalf of the elementary staff and we are reducing the gaps in achievement. Our strategies are research based and our tactics are calculated. We have seen the data and I am proud to tell you that we are making improvements and addressing growth in the areas of Math and Reading. Children are the focus of every decision that is made in my office. Those strides are being made by the support that is given on behalf of this child centered community. Therefore, it is with great urgency that I ask, plead, and beg you to consider your children…our children when you vote on Nov. 5.
They deserve the best opportunities that we can provide. If you disagree with the way things are being done, please attend a board meeting. Many of the questions or concerns you may have could be addressed there. Voting no won't answer your questions or even punish those that you think are making poor decisions. Voting no only hurts the students that attend Elmwood and have come to trust and know this community that we live in. Your "yes" vote gives our kids the education that they need and deserve. It tells our kids that you are willing to make an investment in their futures. That you believe in them! Please say "yes" to the children!
