Welcome parents to the 2021-2022 school year! On the behalf of the Pittman Elementary Leadership Academy’s staff, I am beyond honored to welcome you to an exciting new school year as the principal! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our scholars achieve their highest potential. This year, you will hear us refer to students as “scholars.” As a leadership academy, we will focus on building leaders. We want our scholars to know they are more than just students. We will work to mold them into “leaders”. We will provide rigorous academics and intellectual activities. We will encourage them to become an expert in leadership; what it means and what it looks like.
To accomplish this, we know that a strong partnership with you will make a difference. As partners, there are a number of things we do together. We share responsibility for our scholars’ success. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that they attend school daily (arriving on time and staying the entire day). Monitor scholars’ completion of all homework assignments and read daily to help develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills. Let’s share in-school experiences that make you aware of your child’s school life. We will inform you if he/she needs additional support. We want scholars to know that we (staff and parents) have the same expectations for them to succeed in school and go on to college.
Please consider joining our PTA and/or volunteering at school. Due to COVID19, many of our scholars are behind academically, socially, and emotionally. We seek volunteers to help with teacher-led instruction support, reading with scholars, school-wide events, parent and community recruitment. We want to know your ideas or concerns. Together, we can guarantee our scholars reach their highest potential!
