Dear Parents and Families of Rock Hall Elementary School,

I am so excited about leading Rock Hall Elementary School into the 2016-2017 school year. Mrs. Atkinson and I are here at RHES Monday through Thursday from now until August 12, 2016. We will resume a five-day office schedule after August 12, 2016. I look forward to meeting the students and getting to know all of you.

I want to tell you a little bit about my background, and my educational experience. My husband and I live in Galena and have for many years. Although I do not have children of my own, I view each of the students as “mine” when they are at school. I am an active volunteer for the Galena Volunteer Fire Company and have been for 25 years. I have been an educator in Kent County Public Schools for about 24 years. I spent the first 14 years in the role of Speech Language Pathologist serving in various schools including Rock Hall Elementary, Rock Hall Middle, Millington Elementary, Worton Elementary, Galena Middle and Kent County High School. I have been a Principal at Millington Elementary School for almost 10 years. I believe in the potential of each student and how we can work together to make all of them high-achieving successful individuals. We can all make a difference with each student we come in contact with everyday. I will continue to teach and reinforce the PBIS expectations, “Rock Hall Elementary Students are Safe. Respectful. Responsible.”

I will send a newsletter in the beginning of August with important dates and events. The first day of school is August 29th for students in K-12.

Over the years, I have worked in partnership with the school PTA. I am looking for PTA Officers to complete the Executive Team for the 2016-2017 school year. Thank you to Mrs. Whyte for agreeing to continue on as Treasurer! We are looking for President, Vice-President, and Secretary candidates. I will work closely with the PTA plan a wonderful school year.

Please join me for an informal “Meet and Greet” on Monday August 8, 2016 from 5:15 pm until 6:00 pm on Main Street near the Rock Hall Village. I will be easy t0 find, as I will be wearing a RHES t- shirt and have balloons to identify where I am. Stop by and say hi!

I also plan to be in town for the Pirates and Wenches 5K run/walk, which begins and ends at Rock Hall Elementary School on Sunday, August 14, 2016. Proceeds from this community event will help the Kent County Character Counts program.

I look forward to meeting, and working with all of you this year. Please contact the school if you have questions or need further information.
