Principal’s Message:  October 2020

The start of the 2020-2021 school year has been like no other.  We started the year and had a very successful first 4 weeks of school before having to implement a change to our delivery model, taking Suffield home for a 2-week remote learning session.  We cannot be more proud of our students, staff, and families for making this change and doing such a great job in making it successful. This year has presented us all with challenges and changes.  Learning how to adapt to them and move forward and upward is what we are doing here at Suffield.  

Although much has changed, much has remained the same.  Students are demonstrating great leadership skills and practicing the seven habits on a daily basis.  They have “Put first things first” as they have learned to navigate the ins and outs of remote learning.  Students have demonstrated that they are able to be proactive, coming to school each day, prepared to learn and grow.  Prioritizing and getting school work done first, before other at-home activities, has proven most effective for all learners.  By “synergizing”, students, staff, and families have worked together for student success.  All have realized that this year has required teamwork, and that’s just what all of us together have been able to do; thus accomplishing so much!  

Finally, we thank each of you for recognizing that we are “beginning with the end in mind” as we prepare for what is and could happen with learning throughout the school year.   We “seek to understand” so that we can support you and your family’s needs.  As always, we welcome your feedback and invite you to engage with the staff through email, phone calls, and conferences.  

Your feedback helps us to see things differently and provide opportunities for understanding, clarity, and growth.  

We look forward to continuing to work with you and your children as we navigate this school year.  Together we can accomplish so much more.  I am committed to providing a loving and caring environment for your children in which he/she may grow and develop.  By infusing leadership skills, into your child’s education, we are confident that we will continue to see successes each and every day.
