Mayberry… to create learners, creative thinkers, and leaders
Dear Mayberry Families,
Welcome to a new school year! I am excited and honored to be the principal of Franklin H. Mayberry Elementary School.
Kindergarten Orientation is scheduled for Monday, August 24, 2015 at 5:00 in the evening. I look forward to meeting the newest members of our school community and their families. As you may already know, the official first day of school is Wednesday, August 26, 2015. Letters regarding our new arrival and dismissal procedures will be in the mail soon. Also, be assured that the students will be practicing these procedures during the first week of school and should be very familiar with them by the end of the first full week.
One focus at Mayberry this year will be safety. We are committed to the safety of all members of our community, students and adults. In addition to revising our arrival and dismissal procedures, we are enhancing our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports initiative, revising and updating our School Safety Plan, and increasing our communication with families. Additionally, we will be working closely with our Family Resource Center as well as our School Based Health Center.
In addition to our academic goals regarding literacy, mathematics, science and social studies, we will also focus on fostering family engagement. Though our plans are not yet finalized, you can expect many invitations to join us in celebrating your child’s achievements, working alongside us to plan and achieve your student’s goals, and gathering information about how to be our partners at home. Our hope is that by committing to you, our families, we will see success for “every child, every day” at Mayberry Elementary School.
It has been such a pleasure to meet with so many parents and children over the summer. I’ve enjoyed getting to know all of you. I hope we can continue to meet throughout the school year. Please follow the link to the district website for more information, including the EHPS school calendar: www.easthartford.org.
Here’s to a successful school year!
Anne Axton-Jones, Principal
