Greetings Arbor Station Elementary Family,

 

Please allow me to welcome you to the start of the 2021-2022 school year!  The administration, faculty, and staff are looking forward to an outstanding school year and we know it will be the best one yet!  I continue to be honored and excited to be a member of the Arbor Station Family.  As your principal, I look forward each day to strengthening the relationships that I have begun building with all of you.  While I have always eagerly anticipated the beginning of the school year, this August is particularly meaningful because it will mark the beginning of encouraging Covid-19 data. Effective June 7, 2021, masks are no longer mandatory in Douglas County School System buildings.  We will continue some best practices associated with Covid-19, such as hand washing, sanitizer stations, direction signage, and non-essential visitors will continue to have limited access to the building.  

 

We are proud of our efforts to engage the whole child. By providing Specials instruction in the areas of Physical Education, Music, Art, and STEM the regular education experience is enhanced for our students.  All of our teachers work together to provide meaningful classroom learning opportunities that connects to real world experiences. They know and understand their students, strengths, challenges, and passions while striving for a positive school experience and love of learning. We are committed to meeting all of our students' needs. Our students’ unique needs and experiences are a vital part of what makes Arbor Station such a wonderful place to be. The effort to meet each child’s needs for growth socially, emotionally, and academically is ongoing and intentional. We will continue to integrate student engagement through programs, such as Road Runners, Art and STEM Clubs, Intramural Football and Basketball Teams, Student Council, Safety Patrol/Flag Team, Winter Chorus, Jr. Beta, Math Team, Soap Box Derby, just to name a few.

 

It is our goal to provide excellent services to the community in which we serve and to meet the needs of all students.  We promote collaboration and continue to seek ways to improve our parent engagement programs.  I encourage you to become active members and participate with our parent activities throughout the school year. Some of the opportunities will include, PTSO meetings, Parent Class Conferences, Literacy Night, STEM Night, Paint Night, Father/Daughter – Mother/Son Valentine’s Dance, Real Men Read, Social Studies and Math Nights, Fall Festival, Bear Run, Movie Night, plus much more.

 

Your feedback is important to us in achieving our goal as a School of Excellence.  Therefore, I solicit your suggestions for school improvement and encourage you to stop by, email or call and share your ideas with me at any time. We look forward to an exciting new year of continued collaboration where our motto is “Every student, every day, no matter what, because EXCELLENCE is the only option”.
