As we end the 2017-2018 school year I would like to thank everyone for their hard work. This year has gone so fast! Each of you has taken risks in your learning that have made you not only better students and scholars but better people. Those risks have allowed all of you to “fail forward!” The ability to “fail forward” gives you the opportunity to learn from your mistakes and pivot in a direction towards success. Each of you should be proud of your year here at Eastwood. I love being your principal on a daily basis. I hope I bring as much joy to your daily lives as you bring to mine. It is my job to make sure that you have everything you need to be as successful, and I hope I provided that for you.
To the parents, as always, my door is always open. Communication is the key to any successful partnership. I hope we have established a powerful partnership for your student. The influence you have on your young dolphin is immense and I know you take that responsibility very seriously. I don’t see obstacles as something that might stand in our way but learning experiences that make our relationships stronger. The teachers and I are here for you in any situation that may arise, and want to make sure you can always feel free to discuss issues openly. You have done a wonderful job raising your child and I want to express our thanks!
To the tireless Eastwood teachers and staff, words cannot express the awe that I am in each day regarding the work that you do for all that grace our halls. Students and parents tell me on a daily basis how pleased they are to have you in their lives. You make my job easier each day because of how great you are with the students of Eastwood School. To say “thank you” is just not enough sometimes.
In closing, I leave you with my favorite quote, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit!” Be excellent Dolphins!!! i will see you when school begins again on Thursday, August 30th.
