Our School

Message to Students and Families:

I am very proud to be the principal of New City Elementary School. I look forward to welcoming and working with all of you, and providing another engaging, meaningful year!

Our mission is to foster a safe and nurturing learning environment where students develop self-directed, independent, secure and responsible traits. Within this mission, we are dedicated to helping children grow a love for learning, a curiosity of the world around them and the ability to find solutions to questions in order to grow socially, emotionally and intellectually. The New City Elementary School staff is an extremely dedicated group of professional educators who successfully work collaboratively in making New City a very special place for students. Their enthusiasm and commitment for educating students is inspiring and exemplary, and I feel privileged to call them colleagues. 
As principal, my job is to be the educational leader of our school. I have found that being proactive and visible on a daily basis in classrooms helps students understand that I value their growth, safety and needs. I want students to understand that my position includes being involved in their learning and well-being. My goal with my colleagues is to show strong leadership in the areas of professional development, school improvement and curriculum which encourages staff members to experiment with new philosophies and take ownership of key school initiatives. This has resulted in a school community where learning is the cornerstone for students and staff.

I am always open to feedback from families and members of the community, as we believe in a spirit of continuous improvement in all aspects of our school. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
