Welcome to Hempstead Elementary!
It is truly an honor to serve as principal of Hempstead Elementary. This year marks my 12th year as an administrator and I couldn’t be more excited to be serving the Hempstead community and leading Hempstead Elementary to accomplish great things.
My mission as principal at Hempstead Elementary is to ensure that we continue to put our students first. Here at HES, we believe that all students can learn, and it is our job to support our students to reach their fullest potential. This school year our theme “Oh! The Places You’ll Go!” will emphasize the importance of the social-emotional well-being of our students as well as an excellent educational experience. Our goal is to ensure that our students become collaborative learners, critical thinkers and community contributors.
Throughout the school year, your child’s teacher(s) and I will continue to make a special effort to stay in touch with you. Students will have excellent teachers at Hempstead Elementary; however, the key to healthy, happy and successful students is the positive involvement of parents and families. Please ask your child about their friends and teachers. Get involved as they complete their school assignments or seek your help on special projects. Encourage your child to read at least 20 minutes every night. I am confident that your child will demonstrate greater motivation as you continue to show interest in their academic and social experiences.
I look forward to working with you as we partner together to give your child an excellent elementary experience. My door is always open and I encourage you to call or stop by at any time and for any reason. I am committed to being here for your children and will do everything I can to ensure your child receives the best educational experience while at Hempstead Elementary.
Let’s work together to make this an excellent school year! One Town, One Team, One Goal!
