Greenwich-Lenhartsville Elementary School Mission Statement:
Through the active involvement of our professional and caring staff, parents, and shared leadership, Greenwich-Lenhartsville Elementary offers all students a safe learning environment and a comprehensive educational program. We feel both parents and teachers have valuable talents, skills, and resources that can be used in a positive way to provide our students with a tremendous learning opportunity. In partnership with all stakeholders, we are dedicated to meeting the academic, social, and emotional needs of all our students.
Dear Parent(s) / Guardian(s):
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! We are excited to see all our students on the first day of school at Greenwich-Lenhartsville Elementary School on Monday, August 31. Whether you are a newcomer to our school or an “old timer,” we hope you will find this school year to be a memorable and exciting one.
Along with many other elements, we believe that cooperation and respect are essential elements to experiencing success. With that in mind, we kindly ask that you read this handbook thoroughly and discuss its contents with your child. After you have read and discussed it, please sign and return the acknowledgement page at the end of this handbook. You may then keep this handbook as a handy referral throughout the school year.
A great way to be involved is to become an active member of our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). Our PTO is a wonderful group that supports the learning and growth of our students in many ways. Information including meeting dates and times will be distributed to families at Back To School Night and is available throughout the year.
We hope to see you in attendance at least one PTO meeting between September and June.
We thank you in advance for taking an active role in your child’s education and hope you will continue to seek out more opportunities to be a part of your child’s educational experience. Please be sure to read your child’s classroom newsletters and check our school website and teacher websites often for upcoming events and information.
At Greenwich-Lenhartsville Elementary School, we believe that every child can and will learn. We hope you will join us in providing your child with those opportunities to learn and grow by being an active partner in their education. We are looking forward to working together with you and your child this school year!
Mr. Erin J. Anderson,
Principal, Greenwich-Lenhartsville Elementary School
