Welcome to Greenwood Elementary School, "Home of the Soaring Eagles". In my fifth year as principal here at GES, my goal is to establish and maintain strong relationships with the students, staff and community, in order to provide an engaging learning environment. I believe that a student's education is extremely vital to their success and it takes a strong collaboration between the students, staff, families, and community stakeholders in order for this to take place. While the beginning of the school year will look much different than a normal year, with students learning virtually, we look forward to moving forward with instruction and providing the most robust academic program possible, while students are initially working from home. The one-to-one device initiative will allow students to interact with their teachers regularly and view online lessons, all while using state of the art technology. Once students return for face-to-face instruction we will be incorporating new procedures and protocols to ensure everyone's safety and success. We are blessed to have an amazing staff here at GES, who are actively engaged in professional development and college coursework to ensure the instruction they are delivering is rigorous and incorporates current strategies, techniques and technology. Together, with our amazing staff, we are committed to working hard to help your student be successful and have a wonderful experience! I look forward to working together with everyone this school year and I can't wait to share more about the fantastic things we have planned!
