Welcome Letter from our Principal

Hello Parents and Guardians!

As I begin my first year as Principal of McDonald Elementary, I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your children.  We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to assure they are met. All of us must work together in an extended family environment to ensure success for all students.

I encourage each of you to be an active participant in your child’s learning.  Our doors are open and we strongly support parental involvement.  Whether you volunteer, become a member of PTO, have lunch with your child, or attend a special program, it increases the likelihood of your child’s academic and emotional success.

I am thankful for the opportunity to serve your child and this community and look forward to getting to know each of you.  Let’s build a strong relationship to empower every child with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become the best they can be!
