I am pleased to welcome you back this school year! I would like to extend a special welcome to all new families joining Arlington Heights this year and welcome back to all of our returning families as well! I am honored to be returning as your principal. Our mission at Arlington Heights is to work together to allow our students to DREAM big, to CREATE ideas that will INSPIRE and PREPARE our students for success in college or a career and life. My vision, as the principal, is to ALWAYS put kids first! My belief is that all students can learn. As educators, we need to discover how each child learns in order to differentiate our instruction to support diverse learning styles. In a collaborative effort, we want children to thrive in all ways possible. My hope is that all children will LOVE school and nurture a learning environment that is    positive, safe, warm, caring, as well as a fun place to learn and grow.


    Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community, and this is the MOST important now, more than ever. It truly does take a village and at Arlington Heights we value teamwork and collaboration! Education is a joint venture and Team Arlington Heights greatly appreciates the support you provide for your children at home and at school to help them meet their learning goals.

    We hope you will find that Arlington Heights Elementary School is truly a place where learning is joyful and children delight in coming to school.
