Principal's Message

Dear Families,

Welcome to the start of the 2021-2022 school year!  Over the past few months, Mr. Fleming and I have worked hard to prepare for the return of our students and staff and we could not be more excited!  

We believe  that a strong partnership between home and school leads to our students’ success.  We look forward to fostering our established relationships and creating new ones with our first time families.  Early elementary grades are an integral time in any child’s life and we will work hard to provide a kind, inclusive, collaborative, and engaging learning environment for all.

We look forward to a remarkable school year with our dedicated staff.  Over the summer they have taken some much needed rest, but they have also participated in their own personalized professional development opportunities to increase their own knowledge and skill set that supports our children’s learning.

Everyday, we are fortunate to enter this beautiful school and see the learning and joy that exudes in our hallways and classrooms.  This week we are welcoming our new families and kindergarten families for self guided tours of the building in small groups.  It is our hope and plan to set up time during the fall semester to invite our returning 1st and 2nd grade families to view our beautiful building.  Again, we thank you for your partnership and support. Let’s make this a great 2021-2022 school year! 

With Spartan Pride,

Dr. Markle

Mrs. Catherine VanVooren, Principal
