Principal Page: Greenleaf Elementary
I am proud to be the principal of such a caring, successful school. Greenleaf Elementary School provides an orderly, safe environment with high quality instruction and high expectations, where students experience rewarding, meaningful learning each day. Education provides us all with powerful opportunities, and you can find them here at Greenleaf.
Our students become independent, responsible, life-long learners. Through our Greenleaf CARES (Cooperation, Assertion, Empathy, and Self-control) school-wide expectations, students learn to make positive choices that affect their behavior and academic successes.
Besides the strong core curriculum that is taught in homeroom classes (reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, and health), Greenleaf offers specialist classes that enhance the learning that students do the rest of their day. Our physical education specialists, music specialist, art specialist, technology specialist and media specialist offer extended yet connected learning to the core curriculum, providing students other areas for continued successes.
The outstanding, enthusiastic, and caring staff at Greenleaf work collaboratively to enhance each student's educational experience. Each staff member brings a special set of skills that makes Greenleaf a dynamic place to learn. Providing a positive school climate, staff members build relationships with students and their families. We recognize and celebrate cultural differences while promoting our school community's unity.
We are proud of our school and the strong work we do with children every day. I welcome you to visit Greenleaf Elementary, where all who enter our doors feel welcome.
