Welcome, Leopold families and community!
At Leopold, we will maintain high expectations for our students because we believe in the brilliance, talents, and abilities inherent in all of them. We recognize that providing a high-quality education is our best equity strategy. Therefore, we will continue to prioritize rigorous, standards-aligned learning through a culture of anti-racism. Consistent with the great teaching cycle we will work diligently and collaboratively to plan for the needs of all students. We will pause to reflect on our practices to ensure we are having the desired impact on student achievement. Additionally, we will make adjustments along the way when either our quantitative or qualitative data suggest. With the focus, intentionality, and relentlessness that our amazing staff brings to Leopold each day I am confident we will maintain exceptional learning environments for our students while also seeing them grow both cognitively and socially.
While I am eager to meet your children and begin working with them, I also look forward to the work we will do together. I am reminded of the words of Helen Keller who states, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” I am excited about the opportunities for genuine and authentic partnerships that will support teaching, learning, and an increased sense of community. I encourage you to contact us, offer feedback, or even arrange a visit.
I am thrilled to be embarking on a new school year with you all and thank you for the opportunity to work in service of your children and the community.
