Dear Modern Knowledge Elementary Families,
Welcome to the 2022/2023 school year! I am so pleased to begin a new school year as your Elementary principal. We will continue the learning journey we began last year. It was indeed challenging in the face of Covid restrictions and continual adaptations, but we persevered as a community. In the end, we thrived as we learned to work together and turn adversity into strength. This year, we will highlight our literacy program, with a focus on bridging any gaps and accelerating the pace of reading and writing for all students. We will also be carefully tending to the social and emotional needs of students, ensuring all children are well-supported and nurtured. As always, MKS will be a place where students will have fun!
At the Elementary School, our goal is to provide students with an enriching educational experience that focuses on high academic standards in a joyful environment, while giving students opportunities to develop as healthy social beings. All staff at the Elementary School are committed to the school’s mission of developing respectful, responsible, global-minded citizens that contribute to creating a more peaceful world. Our teachers promote this with engaging lessons aligned to the AERO Standards and that provide students with opportunities to build 21st Century skills.
In addition to literacy development, we will continue our focus on building a positive culture where all members of the community are valued and honored. As a staff we value taking the time to get to know each individual student in order to provide them with the best educational experience. We also want to provide parents with multiple opportunities to become involved and to support the incredible learning journey in Elementary. To that end, I always welcome your input and contribution to MKS!
I am so grateful to be part of this amazing community. Your support of our learning programs makes it all possible. Together we will make 2022/23 our best year yet!
