Dear McLoughlin Families,
I hope this letter finds you well. It is with excitement that I welcome you to the upcoming school year! As a principal, summertime is always a great time to reflect on what’s important and plan for the coming school year. I believe deeply that education is an empowering force in our students’ lives, and that McLoughlin students deserve the very best. I take my role in providing the best experience possible for our students very seriously.
I know that as families, you want the best for your students as well. The McLoughlin staff is dedicated to working tirelessly to create a culture and atmosphere where your students will thrive socially, emotionally, and academically. We will do this by continuing to improve in our three main focus areas:
Culture and Climate – We will work to create a safe, supportive, and caring environment for your students to come to everyday, so that when they’re here, they can focus on learning.
Rigorous Curriculum – We will be dedicated to providing a rigorous curriculum that will prepare your students for high school and beyond.
Instructional Excellence – We will dedicate ourselves to being the best educators we can be, utilizing best practices and current technology to help students succeed, and creating meaningful and engaging learning experiences.
By working together, I believe that we can deliver on our vision of excellence. Please take a close look at all the info in this letter as there are some key dates including 6th Grade Orientation and the VPS GoReady event. I look forward to working with all of you this year.
