Principals Welcome

Dear A.C. New Parents and Guardians,

I hope that you and your student(s) have had a positive start to the school year and are looking forward to an exciting year ahead of us. The beginning of the school year is one of my favorite times of the year. The school halls are alive with energy and enthusiasm as students see their friends again, share summer experiences with their teachers and embrace all of the great opportunities the new year has to offer. As the new principal, it has been extremely rewarding to witness this enthusiasm when I meet and see students experiencing learning in and outside of the classroom. We started off the year with every student participating in our very first KNIGHT CAMP, with the goal of every student learning about CHIVALRY, KINSHIP, and VALOR and what it means to be an A.C. New Knight. Many students have reported a positive experience and I am confident that KNIGHT CAMP has contributed to a positive start for our students that will allow for success this year.

I look forward to continuing this positive culture and climate as we progress into the school year.  As we look ahead to the rest of the school year, I would encourage you to “Like” our Facebook page and continue to check our website for information on the different activities and events. One important dates to mark on your calendar is our first parent meeting-Thursday, September 20th. You will receive information about our campus vision and goals and information about the campus safety plan.  Our focus this year will be Leading in Learning for staff and students. We believe that every person in this building should always be growing and learning.

One of our goals this year is to increase this average to be about 97%. We are working to increase attendance because research has shown that attendance has a major impact on student learning. If too many absences occur, it results in too much lost learning time in the classroom. We certainly understand that students will get sick and need to stay home occasionally. The important thing is to get your student to school as often as possible. Thank you for all of your effort and support to ensure your student attends school on a daily basis. We look forward to a fantastic year at A.C. New! If we can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate in contacting us.
