Principal's Message

  • Ms Henderson, Pennington Principal

     

    September 1, 2021

    Dear Students, Parents, and Families,

    Welcome to the academic year of 2021 – 2022! It is an honor to share that I will serve as the new principal of the esteemed, prominent Pennington School! I hope that you took time to rest, relax, rejuvenate, and have some fun this summer. This academic year of 2021 – 2022 will bring new learning experiences, increased student achievement, times of joy, challenges, and accomplishments for our school community. My journey has led me to you and I am excited and grateful to experience this journey with you. Please be assured I share your dedication of demonstrating love, care, support, and high expectations while being their greatest advocate.

    Our theme for this academic year is “Rise Up: For the Whole Child, Student Achievement, Our Wellness, and Our Community.” Despite the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, together we will focus on the holistic needs of our children while working to close the achievement gap, increasing student learning and success. Let us act with the belief that all students are special, can learn and succeed. Our efforts to close the achievement gap will include but are not limited to:

    • Promote the social and emotional well-being of all students
    • Sustain a safe and positive learning environment
    • Implement research-based strategies and targeted instruction to increase student learning and achievement
    • Incorporate differentiated instructional strategies and interventions in our instructional practice

    We must remember to nurture our wellness so we are able to give our best daily. If our tank is low or empty it will be difficult to fully give to our students as well as our loved ones. In our work, let us rise up in service and commitment to the Pennington School community-at-large.

    With respect to health and safety due to the continuous impact of COVID-19 we must implement mitigation measures. All staff and students are required to wear masks while adhering to social distancing guidelines. Each class and/or office should have a designated area for PPE kits. We will adhere to mitigation measures as per our district’s guidelines and make adjustments should they be necessary. The safety and well-being of you and our students are of paramount importance.

    I am filled with joy in anticipating all that is to come for the betterment of our students and school community. Please know my door is always open for you. I truly welcome your ideas, perspectives, and positive input throughout the year. I look forward to working collaboratively to provide a world-class educational experience for our students to enable them to become independent and critical thinkers, who act with integrity, solve problems, become life-long learners, productive and responsible citizens prepared for their future endeavors and the ever-changing demands of our society.

    Respectfully,

    Ms. Thrusha A. Henderson, Principal
