Letter from Principal
Dear Musick Families,
Welcome to a new, exciting school year! I am honored to start my second year as the principal. For those who are new to the school, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am a product of Newark schools (Go Cougars!) and live in the community with my six-year old son, Ryan. Ryan plays soccer and takes swim lessons. He loves to be creative by dancing and making movies on the iPhone and iPad! Before I became principal, I taught at another Newark elementary school for 13 years. I love being around our students and being visible and accessible on campus.
Our staff, both veteran and new, has worked hard to get the year started off wonderfully. Join me in welcoming new staff members:
All of our staff welcome you in joining us in our year-long theme and focus: Leopard Pride. We are reflecting on what makes us proud, as educators and colleagues, and celebrating the pride in our work and on our campus. What makes you proud as a parent?
