Welcome to Maryland Avenue Elementary School! I am excited to be beginning another year with the Maryland Avenue community as your Principal! I would like to extend a warm welcome to our returning families, as well as many new families.
Maryland Avenue is a wonderful learning community with a tradition of excellence. I feel privileged to be part of a dedicated staff like this, one that is focused on and committed to student learning. I intend to continue to support and contribute to the learning environment we have in place.
We believe that educating a child is truly a partnership between home and school. There are many ways you can help your child be successful in school, including communicating with your child’s teacher on a regular basis, supporting classroom expectations at home, reading to or with your child at home, and helping with homework. We invite all parents to be involved by joining our P.T.A., attending school functions such as Back-to-School Night and Open House, and attending conferences. Parents can also help out by offering to serve on the School Site Council or English Learner Advisory Committee. Volunteers are always welcome at Maryland Avenue. Our goal is to work together to ensure student success.
Maryland Avenue is proud to be a PeaceBuilder school! As PeaceBuilders, we notice hurts, give up put-downs, right wrongs, praise people, seek wise people, and help others. Throughout the year, we also emphasize developing specific character traits such as respect, responsibility, trustworthiness, citizenship, and fairness.
My door is always open. Please feel free to stop by or contact me with any questions, praise, or concerns you may have.
