I hope your summer was restful, exciting and everything you wanted it to be. It is always fun to listen to the children talk about their summer and the great times they had. We look forward to welcoming you back to school and seeing all of our students and their families. We hope that you will feel a part of our school family and come and participate in all we have to offer and take an active part in your child’s education. We are excited to see you and collaborate together in your child’s educational experience.
I hope you will join us on the first day of school for our PTA Coffee on the Green. It is a great time to meet new people and connect with people you may not have seen in a while. Please get to know PTA and Eagles Booster Fund. They have a lot to offer and being involved at school is great for your child.
We look forward to beginning the year with all our technology in place all raised courtesy of our Academic Boosters Eagles Fund. Our students will engage in 21st Century learning in the computer lab and the classroom. New projectors have been installed in every classroom over summer and we look forward to incorporating them in our new lessons with students.
Neil Armstrong is committed to children and their academic and social wellbeing. We hold high expectations in our teaching and learning, placing high importance on student engagement though creativity, curiosity, communication, critical thinking and collaboration. Character development plays a key role in our student’s education. We focus on respect, empathy, responsibility, trustworthiness, fairness and citizenship.
Our common core curriculum is an important piece of our educational shift working on our new reading units of study, science curriculum and much more.
We believe that together we can create a wonderful experience for our children built on rigor, relevance and relationships. We hold the philosophy that Neil Armstrong students are all our students, not just those in our own classrooms. We are very excited to see you back!
Principal, Neil Armstrong School
