It is my privilege and honor to join Wenonah Elementary School as the newly appointed Principal for the 2015-2016 school year. Wenonah is a place where strong connections are made between the home and the school and where parents and educators partner together to develop the whole child. I value these characteristics; I am excited to help continue moving Wenonah along the path of excellence.
This year's theme is "Moving in the Right Direction." We will continue to focus on student achievement, highly effective teaching, and continuous school improvement.
This year we will work towards reinstating our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). My goal is to establish a vibrant, dynamic PTO that supports our teachers, staff, students, and families, and makes Wenonah Elementary School a place of excellence. One of the greatest gifts that you can contribute to your child's education is by being involved with our school. I highly encourage you to get involved at any level that you can.
An essential component of a successful school is a strong partnership between home and school. As your principal, I pledge to communicate and work with you to be certain that decisions are made with our students' best interests in mind. I look forward to a long partnership as we work together to create an engaging and rigorous learning environment for all of our students; I am confident that together we can make Wenonah an even better place for our students to learn and grow.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve your families in this role.
With warm regards,
Tonya Cook Carter, Principal
