On behalf of the staff of the Global Leadership Academy at Barbara Bush Elementary, I would like to welcome you to an outstanding school year. We are excited that your family has selected us to help your child reach her/his full potential during this critical time in his/her life.
During elementary, children undergo important developmental changes and become more autonomous. They transition from "learning to read" to "reading to learn" during this short, yet significant learning period of their life.
It is my belief that parents are the first teachers of their children and play a central role in their child's education. I invite you to participate in open, honest and continuous communication with your child's teachers. This would ensure a successful and healthy home-school partnership that would promote accelerated learning for your child. I encourage you to tell our teachers about your child's needs throughout the year so that he or she benefits from "THE BEST" educational experience possible.
As principal, it is important for me that my staff, parents and students become partners in this educational journey. I believe that it truly takes a village to accomplish the best possible learning outcomes for our children and I am grateful for the opportunity to partner with you during this journey.
Thank you for supporting your child's success at school, in the classroom, and through our parent organizations (PTA). Let's all continue our commitment to making a greater effort towards communicating with each other. If I can ever be of assistance, please email or call me.
with Dolphin Pride,
Principal -Dina M. Jammer
