A Message from the Principal
Welcome to the 2012-2013 school year! My name is Kerry Boren and I am the Principal of Letford Elementary School. Welcome to our school! I say our school, because shared dedication and commitment are what makes our school one that focuses on learning and continual growth. Letford is a dynamic school because of parent participation and staff enthusiasm.
I am a Principal that believes that all children can and do learn. It is up to both educators and parents to facilitate and encourage that academic and social growth. As of this year, I have had 24 years in education. I savored and learned from each teaching and administrative position. While I continue to grow and expand my own learning, I share and apply what I have learned to help everyone in their own growth. I have an open door policy, one that warmly welcomes parents, students and staff in sharing, problem solving and celebrating.
Letford’s mission statement is “Letford Elementary School believes that we, together with the community, will develop responsible, lifelong learners through a challenging and safe learning environment”. The mission statement is reviewed on a continual basis to ensure that we are meeting the children’s needs. Every decision we make, whether it be through the PTO, school leadership team or student council is based on our mission statement.
I am proud to be a part of a community that believes in partnership and focuses on the children. I welcome any input or ideas and truly enjoy being your school Principal. I would like to encourage you to spend time at Letford Elementary School and experience the quality teaching and learning that is taking place daily. There are numerous opportunities to involve you in the lives of our students by attending performances, concerts, PTO Meetings, BAC meetings and awards assemblies.
Enjoy your school year.
