 I cannot wait to meet your child and watch him/her change and grow and learn. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your child's life.  My philosophy is open communication.  Please contact me whenever you have a question or concern.  I will do the same for you. Everyone’s input is important as we work together to create a school where all students can be successful. As a parent or guardian, your interest and involvement with your child’s education will promote a positive attitude toward learning and academic achievement. We have several tools to keep you updated throughout the year including monthly emails, teacher newsletters and our school website along with twitter. 

Thank you to all who are helping prepare for the new school year. Your commitment to ensuring that WYE remains a celebrated and successful school is awe-inspiring. I eagerly look forward to greeting students and all WYE families again. It remains an honor and privilege to serve as your principal.  Please stop by and say hello. Together, I know we will make this school year one of growth and achievement for all children.
