Mrs. Sarah Swanson
Dear Kindergarten at Pleviak Families,
Welcome to kindergarten! I want to extend to you and your family a very warm welcome to Kindergarten at Pleviak. Kindergarten is an exciting time when children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. It is a time when children will acquire new skills both academically and socially that will enhance their ability to learn in many ways.
This is my second year as the principal and I am honored to be here at Pleviak. My goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy and safe so they learn as much as they can!
I have been devoted to the field of education for 22 years. I have worked as a teacher, literacy coach, assistant principal and principal. I will spend time getting to know your children as I visit their classes throughout the day. I will celebrate their successes, small and large. I will encourage them every day, and let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community.
Not only am I excited for your child to be here at Pleviak, but I am also looking forward to the work we will do together. “It takes a village to raise a child,” and the Pleviak staff and I will be here to work with you every step of the way.
Once again, I am privileged to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned to Kindergarten at Pleviak. I look forward to getting to know you and your children. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments and/or concerns. I am easily reached at email@example.com.
