Dear Mascoutah Elementary School Families and Friends!
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! It is a privilege to serve as the Assistant Principal at Mascoutah Elementary School. Our school is a top notch school in Illinois, and I am proud to be a part of it and the community.
Mascoutah Elementary School has an outstanding reputation in this area. Our school has enthusiastic students willing to learn, supportive families interested in their child's education, and a dedicated staff committed to meeting our school vision...
"Engaging every student...every day...
in quality learning opportunities."
I would like to encourage each family to stay involved in your child's education. I know that most families have busy schedules. Many parents and families do not have spare time to volunteer in the classroom. However, you can still help us! Please be sure to take a few minutes to read to and with your child every day. I have found that most people enjoy having someone read to them (even when they are a good reader). Next, please take a few minutes to ask your child about the best part of their day at school, and maybe even something that was challenging for them or something that they would like to know more about. Finally, please help your child organize their things before bed each evening. Go over papers with them, check homework if needed, and discuss any important information coming home from school. This help in organizing and setting up for the next day can pay huge benefits for your child as he/she grows into Middle School, High School, and college. It is never too early to start helping and teaching organization.
If you have a question or concern, please contact your child's teacher first. The teacher can resolve most of your questions and concerns. If I can help in any way, please contact me. I am always glad to help you.
This will be another exciting year at Mascoutah Elementary School! I am looking forward to school starting on August 17th, and meeting new families and seeing our friends from the last school year.
