Dear Parents and Loving Caregivers,
It is with great enthusiasm and excitement that I write this letter welcoming you back to the start of a new school year! I am honored to be the principal of Wing Elementary School and look forward to working together to advance the achievement of all students. During my time as an educator, I have had the opportunity to serve various communities as a teacher assistant, special education teacher, founding member of a new school, and assistant principal. Working together, I am confident that we will continue to provide our students with a truly rigorous and enriching school experience.
The elementary years are critical times for children. What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their growth and development. My goal as principal is to provide leadership that will facilitate a school environment that is safe, encouraging, and fun for your child to receive the best possible instruction and encourage them to become lifelong learners.
I believe that all children can and will learn to their greatest potential in a positive, nurturing environment. I think it is essential to encourage our students to understand their mistakes and obstacles are a part of life, but how students persevere, learn, and grow from these difficulties will encourage them to develop into successful adults and lifelong learners. I look forward to spending time this year getting to know and learn from staff, students, and families at Wing.
I believe in the importance of two-way communication and encourage you to reach out if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas throughout the year as my door is always open to the school community. If there is anything I can assist you with, please let me know.
Catherine Glaser, Proud Principal
