Teachers, principals, and parents working together as an educational team to provide the best possible education for our children is a very important task. The efforts of the teachers in the classrooms and the leadership of the principal in the school are very important in this effort. In order for schools to do their best for the students several factors are needed. Many of these are things that need to be nurtured and supported. Some are always considered to be a work in progress.

A viable curriculum that is rigorous and relevant is important. Learning to set appropriate goals and working to achieve them provides success. Inviting · parents and community to be involved in discussions and decision-making for the school encourages ownership. Providing children with a school that is safe and has an orderly environment requires planning and a daily effort. Encouraging teachers and staff members to demonstrate a high level of collaboration and professionalism is the duty of the school leader. These are all important ongoing efforts made by our school leaders.
