Dear Country Club Community
It was love at first sight. What a wonderful elementary school tucked in between Blue Fox Way and May Way. A real treasure. I feel so lucky to have been principal at Country Club. What a very special community - the wonderful staff, supportive parents and families and best of all fabulous students. I have so enjoyed getting to know you and work together to bring the best educational experience possible for your student.
We have accomplished so much in these past two years! Changes in instruction with Common Core; piloting the new Smarter Balanced test (replacing STAR); the integration of technology with the 1:1 iPads and increased use of the mobile laptop labs; our efforts with increasing school connectedness through Soul Shoppe, fundraising for the Wheelchair Foundation, Chinese sister school partnership; bringing the community together with our Campus Beautification.
Our Cougar Ed Fund, School Site Council, and PTA boards are vibrant. We have increased volunteerism and continue to support essential programs such as computer instruction, technology, art, library, character education; our gardens, Rainbow, and teacher grants. Through your generosity, we have a beautiful marquee, funds for a new sound system in the MPR and 40 beautiful microscopes for our science lab.
It is a true joy to come to school every morning and work with our wonderful dedicated staff – from our custodians, secretaries, support staff, science, PE, and music teachers and of course, our classroom teachers. Every day they come prepared to provide the best in educational opportunities and to provide a warm, caring classroom community for your child. I am so impressed with their capacity to embrace change and to reflect on best practices for the implementation of Common Core.
Most of all, I have loved getting to know our students. It is a joy to interact and celebrate with them every day. They are a wonderfully diverse, intelligent, inclusive, delightful student body. This is truly the best part of my job.
Thank you for all that you do in supporting all of our students. We all contribute in so many ways. I so appreciate it. Your support is what makes the difference at Country Club. From leading a Breakfast Book Club; to leaving work early to attend School Site Council meetings; to just shooting hoops out on the playground before school; to helping your child with his/her homework, it all makes
It is said that when the best and brightest come together, amazing happens. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of Country Club Elementary School, truly amazing!
