A Message from Our Principal

Good Afternoon Parents,


As many of you have likely heard, last week, the School Board confirmed me as Principal of Neil Armstrong Elementary for the upcoming school year.  I wanted to reach out to you to introduce myself and share the honor and excitement that I have for this opportunity.  I look forward to joining your school community, which is both strong academically and rich in tradition.  


I had the privilege of meeting some of you during Tuesday’s meet and greet and I hope to become acquainted with many more of you as we approach this new school year.  The warm greetings combined with the energy in the room yesterday morning were overwhelming.  I feel so lucky to be able to partner with the kind, enthusiastic, and committed parents that call Neil Armstrong their home. This was a fantastic initial experience for me and I want to say a big thank you to our current Principal, Lorna Monteith, and our PTA for putting on this event. 


Neil Armstrong Elementary students are building the foundation for their academic careers while simultaneously establishing connections with one another.  The character they develop, the friendships that thrive, and the positive relationships they build with each other and with caring adults will serve them now and in their future.  It is my top priority to work with our faculty, parents, and students to help create a safe environment for all students to experience this positive growth in their time as Eagles. 


I’m excited to work with the faculty of Neil Armstrong and to learn of the experiences that they bring to our campus. Supporting our teachers is a priority of mine that I take very seriously. I will work every day to communicate that message to our teachers through words and actions; I will work to build strong relationships with our staff and provide support to them in any aspect necessary.  Teachers work hard every day to provide students with opportunities to grow and learn; it is my job to support them at every turn.


Finally, parent involvement is critical to the success of Neil Armstrong Elementary School.  I will look to the parent community to be involved in the education of their student as they develop and grow as young people.  Whether this involvement is through PTA, Neil Armstrong Education Foundation, campus volunteering, or working on various committees, the opportunities are endless and I look forward to meeting with all of you as we embark on this journey together


Thank you for your time and support. I look forward to working with all of you soon!
