Principal's November Message

November is an important time for us to all reflect on our blessings.  I am certainly thankful for the many blessings in my life, including working with amazing teachers, phenomenal support staff, student leaders, and a wonderful community. 
In visiting classes, it is wonderful to see teachers and students engaged in activities that capture learners’ attention and support purposeful engagement throughout the building.  Kindergarten and 1st grade classes celebrated 50 days of learning! Students and teachers dressed up in 1950s gear, learned about 1950s versus today, and engaged in a host of activities to celebrate many of the skills students have acquired during the first 50 days of learning!
Our star staff strives to provide activities to enrich the learning environment, support student learning, and bring us all together.  We continue to hold monthly All Pro Dad and iMom breakfast chats.  We came together as a community during our annual Fall Festival.  We enjoyed good food and fun times at our partner spirit nights.  I would like to thank our PTA, and the host of teachers, staff, and volunteers for making each of these spectacular!  I can tell you that the Andover staff – all of us - enjoy interacting with you during these events!
This month, we have several activities planned, so don’t forget to check out our calendar of events and our monthly newsletter.  If you would like to plan even further ahead, please check out our school website.
As we approach the Thanksgiving Break, I would like to share that I am aware of the awesome privilege it is to be the principal of this school, working with such a dedicated staff, wonderful students, and supportive parents.
