I am so excited to be the new principal of Ft. Pierce Magnet School of the Arts. Prior to my appointment here, I served as the principal of Bayshore Elementary for 6 years and I am looking forward to working with you and your children.
It’s hard to believe but it’s that time of the year again – the beginning of a new school year. Welcome back! You may not be part of the teaching staff here at Ft. Pierce Magnet, but you are just as important to your children’s education as we are.
Our children receive the best education when you and our dedicated teachers work together as a team. It’s a parents enthusiasm, support and involvement that inspires children to do their best; and a teacher’s ability to teach what they need to learn. Together we will achieve wonderful things.
There’s a lot of excitement ahead of us, including new teachers to meet, new books to read, new friends to meet and new skills to master…and I look forward to you sharing in those exciting times. As a parent myself, I know how fast time goes by. One year your child’s in 1st grade and seemingly in the blink of an eye they’re in middle school, or on their way to college.
I encourage you to fully embrace the moment and urge you to take the time from your busy schedule to become familiar with our school, as well as create a homework-friendly home environment that will allow your children to excel. We invite you to become a member of our PTO, our School Advisory Council or to volunteer here at Ft. Pierce Magnet School of the Arts.
Thank you for your commitment to your child’s education and I look forward to seeing you in the very near future.
