Message From The Principal

Welcome from Principal Jessica Leonard - Grades TK-5

 

Dear WISH Community,

I am extremely grateful to be a part of a collaborative, enthusiastic, and caring group of students, families and staff. When children of all abilities learn together we teach them from the outset that all people have areas of strength and areas of need, we teach them to value all people, we teach them to challenge themselves, and above all we teach them that everyone belongs in a community.

In the elementary school, we keep the child at the center of everything we do. The high quality, differentiated instruction provided by our excellent teachers allows for students to participate in meaningful and engaging learning experiences throughout the day. WISH empowers and inspires our learners to reach their highest potential each and every day. Our highly qualified educators partner together to plan, teach, and assess each child. Each classroom builds a strong, inclusive environment together so that all students can grow and thrive here at WISH. Our school would not function without our valued parent partnerships. We know that a collaborative approach with all stakeholders is vital to improving student success. The partnerships built with families have led to a thriving and nurturing environment for children. It is such a joy for me to walk the campus and see evidence of all of the above things being played out in the day to day life at WISH!

My top priority as your elementary principal is to support a safe learning environment filled with enriching, rigorous curriculum.  I vow to promote a positive learning environment for all students by being a friendly and familiar face on campus, interacting regularly with students, staff, and families, and supporting teams to increase student achievement. I look forward to another successful year!

 Warmly,
Jessica Leonard
Principal
