Be a Leader a Jacksonville Heights!
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! As the principal of Jacksonville Heights Elementary School, it is an honor to be a member of this great community. The wonderful collegial partnership between all stakeholders of Jacksonville Heights helps provide the best academic experience for our students.
This year, we will continue to focus on two main goals:
Goal 1: By consistently providing opportunities for students to own their learning and demonstrate their understanding in all content areas, we hope to continue to increase student achievement and engagement.
Goal 2: By implementing school wide positive support systems that address the social and emotional needs of families, students, staff and faculty, we hope to increase the engagement and success of all stakeholders.
To reach our 2017-2018 goals, our school theme will embrace leadership using the principals outlined in The Leader in Me by Stephen Covey. Students will be taught and will practice the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This will empower our students to make positive, effective, and responsible choices by introducing and reinforcing the 7 Habits. Your child is about to embark on an exciting journey and our hope is that you will ask your child how he/she is doing along the way!
Jacksonville Heights encourages your parental involvement as we work together as a team. Your involvement is essential to your child’s success. Thank you for your support and please feel free to visit and volunteer! This is going to be a fantastic year!
