• As we prepare for the 2019 – 2020 school year, I remain committed to providing an educational environment that supports a tradition of excellence, by focusing on student’s academic success in a culture that is safe and nurturing.

    As I begin my second year as Principal at EPIC Alternative Elementary School, I am filled with enthusiasm and excitement. During the 2018 – 2019 school year, we experienced several successes, as well as, identified opportunities for growth. Some of our successes include: 1) a reduction in Chronic Absenteeism 2) an increase in Academic Achievement, and 3) an increase Academic Growth. As we pause to celebrate these successes, we cannot stop there. We will continue to provide our students with high-quality educational experiences that are engaging, challenging, and innovative. Some of the identified opportunities for growth include: 1) bridging the achievement gap in our subgroups, 2) increasing student-centered activities, and 3) developing partnerships with stakeholders to increase community awareness.

    I am confident that we will continue to excel with the collective efforts of our students, parents, community leaders, and faculty and staff.
