Dear Modern Knowledge Elementary Families,
Welcome to the 2019/2020 school year! It is a privilege to be the principal at Modern Knowledge Elementary (MKS). I have spent 14 years working as a teacher, teacher coach, and assistant principal in the United States. Last year, I served as the assistant principal at MKS Elementary and I am excited to be able to continue my work with the MKS family in this new role.
At the Elementary School, our goal is to provide students with an enriching educational experience that focuses on strong academics, while giving students opportunities to develop as learners. All the 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 do this work by implementing engaging lessons that are aligned to the AERO Standards and that provide students with opportunities to build 21st Century skills.
This year we also will have a strong focus on building relationships between students, teachers, and parents. 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 work that is going on during the school day.
I look forward to working with each of you this year in order to ensure that your child has the best possible experience at MKS!
Congratulations to elementary classes 4-1, 4-2, and 2-3 for their amazing National Day Competition submissions! Special thanks to Ms. Merelda, Mr. Hennie, and Ms. Endwell for inspiring your students to celebrate Bahrain. These fantastic slide and video creations will be added to our website soon for all to enjoy, and the students and teachers will be awarded some special prizes for their efforts!
