On behalf of the dedicated staff of Penson School, I would like to welcome you to another school year. It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to return to Penson after a seven-year stint as Principal of Wembley Elementary School. I have many positive memories from my first two years at Penson and have even had the chance to talk with some former students. I look forward to working with you, our students, and staff to make this year a super year for everyone. I urge you to keep communication open with staff and myself to serve our students best, as we know issues arise from time to time throughout the year. Keeping in contact and sharing information is important and we look forward to hearing from you.
A current project is developing a Penson Student/Parent Handbook, which will provide a one stop shop of information that will help put us, home and school, on the same page. After a review and approval from Parent Council, we will refine and make sure to deliver copies electronically and paper copies for those who request them.
It is my personal and professional opinion that schools have a responsibility to offer students a variety of educational opportunities and we have scheduled some new and exciting presentations/programs for students during this school year. In time, they may become part of how we do business here at Penson and enhance the creative opportunities students experience here.
Feel free to contact staff, including myself, with any questions and concerns. Working together allows our students to become the BEST they can be socially, emotionally and academically.
