Principal's Corner - May 2014

Dear Families,

I recently learned that I will be leading learning at Highland Park until the end of June.  Seattle Public Schools has assigned me to be the principal for K-5 STEM at Boren for next year.
     

I love the students and families of Highland Park!  You will be in my heart and mind for years to come.  Much hard work and planning remains to be done this year.  I will continue to invest myself in that work, and supporting the transition of a new principal to Highland Park.  Chris Cronas, the principal of Wedgwood Elementary and former assistant principal of Eckstein Middle School, will be the new principal of Highland Park, officially starting July 1.  However, Mr. Cronas will begin transition activities at Highland Park during May and June.
    
The Washington State Measure of Student Progress (MSP) will be given at Highland Park for our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders April 29 through May 2.  Please make sure your children are well rested, have eaten breakfast, and are at school by 8:35 am at the latest (8:20 if they are eating breakfast here).
    
Highland Park Families are encouraged to participate on upcoming Highland Park hiring committees.  Hiring committees are a great way to support your school community (see details below).

Principal
