Elementary School

It is with great excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you, the community of Capac, as the new elementary principal. I am extremely honored to have the opportunity to lead a school that is deeply rooted in a community with such rich traditions. I have been a dedicated educator for twenty years, with my most recent experience of being the Reading Specialist, as well as the School Improvement Team Leader, in Royal Oak Middle School. I also have experience working with struggling readers in a Detroit charter school. However, most of my career has been spent teaching students ranging in grades Kindergarten to Middle School, at Holy Cross Catholic School in Marine City. I am eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Capac Elementary School and begin working with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success in learning.

Along with the teachers, paraprofessionals, and staff, I will work diligently to continue building strong, positive relationships with students, parents, and community members. Together we will focus on utilizing data to drive instruction and make decisions that will ensure that each student reaches his/her highest potential. We will focus on character education, strengthen our Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS) and Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) programs and incorporate restorative practices in order to develop each child’s social-emotional well-being. We will also provide consistent implementation of the curriculum and continue to innovate and improve instruction in order to increase student achievement.

This year is going to be an amazing year, as we continue to provide a nurturing environment that provides relevant experiences for our students to help them make real-world connections. As your Principal, it is extremely important to me that everyone that walks through our doors- teachers, students, and parents- feels welcomed and excited to be here! This attitude will enable us to put our best foot forward and meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.

I look forward to working with each and every one of you to help each student at Capac Elementary School meet their learning goals and have the best, most successful school year ever!

Best Wishes,

 

Ms. Rachel Ward
