Principal's Monthly Message
May has arrived already! What a school year this has been for me. As a first time principal I have learned, and continue to learn many lessons. However, the greatest lesson that I have learned this year has been the power of good people working together with a common purpose.
As a teacher I would often hear administrators talk about how wonderful it was to be able to go into so many teachers classrooms to observe all of the wonderful teaching that was taking place. I was able to do this a little as a teacher and I enjoyed it each time I had that opportunity. However, now I get to do this on a daily basis and I can confirm that what the other administrators were saying was true. I want you to know that we have teachers at Woodruff that give their all for the kids of our school. I am so pleased with the effective practices that I see our teachers implementing with your children each day. Beyond that I have been approached frequently by our teachers and support professionals to celebrate the achievements of students in and out of school, and to share concerns for their well being. I have learned this year more than ever the amount of effort and care that we have for your children.
Another group of great people are our Woodruff parents. I hardly had a year as a teacher when I didn’t have parents that were willing to come in and volunteer in my class. I appreciated the services that parents gave and came to the understanding that without parent involvement the school experience isn’t as rich as it is when involvement is present. Again, this year, I have come to the knowledge that we have so many wonderful parent volunteers. There are those that come in weekly, daily and some just a couple of times a year. Regardless of the amount the efforts they give have an amazingly positive impact on our students. I know that it isn’t easy to do this type of service, and never is it convenient. I am convinced we have the greatest parents in the valley here at our school. When we work together as parents and educators our children are the winners, and the Woodruff students are definitely winners in our community.
The last group of good people are the students. I loved teaching in the classroom and I have missed it very much this year. However, I have been able to get to know the students so well this year. I have been able to call families every afternoon to celebrate the achievements of our students or to talk about concerns. I have gotten to know them as I say good morning or goodbye to them as they come and go each day. I have been able to teach them during their class times as I go to different classes and take over for the teacher to teach myself for an hour or two. I have been able to talk to them while eating lunch with them and while seeing them both in school and in the community, such as at the rec center for the indoor soccer league. I am struck that each child in this school has so much potential for good in their lives and I am privileged to work with them each day. Their enthusiasm for life and to improve their knowledge each day is a source of motivation for me. It keeps me feeling such hope for their future and gratitude for the present.
I know that as a school we will always be on the path of improvement. However, at Woodruff we are surrounded by the best people group of people this world has to offer to achieve our common goal, student success and happiness. Thanks to each of you for this school year, it has been incredible.
