Welcome Essex Public School Families!

Welcome to the School Year 2020-2021

 It is with a tremendous amount of gratitude that I continue as Principal of Essex Public School.  It is with pleasure that I continue to serve the students, staff, and parents of the Essex PS community in this capacity.  I am filled with optimism and resiliency as we begin this learning journey together for the 2020-2021 school year. 

The partnership between family and the school community is central to the success of all of our students in order to develop students who are resilient and capable of achieving to the best of their ability.  I believe that all students are capable of achieving high standards in a positive environment where each child's physical, social, emotional, and cognitive needs are addressed and supported. 

All our students are entitled to a nurturing and stimulating learning environment which builds upon strengths and addresses learning needs.  My experiences as a husband, brother, Teacher, Program Consultant and Administrator have taught me the importance of active listening as the foundation for building strong trusting relationships with students, parents, staff, and community partners. 

The Essex Public School staff is committed to each student as a whole child.  We have high expectations for your child(ren) and will plan, teach and assess so each of them can meet with success.  Staff give freely outside of their role to offer a range of extra curricular choices thanks to the commitment of our teaching and support staff.  Thank-you to the dedicated group of parent volunteers who run special events and fundraisers for our school.

Our Mission Statement reflects our beliefs and goals:

We welcome and support every child into a safe, stimulating and challenging environment.

We ensure students of all abilities achieve personal excellence. In partnership with parents and the community.

We empower each child to be confident, successful and contributing citizens in an ever changing global community.

I encourage parents and community members to be active participants in the education of our students.  Open lines of communication with your child's teacher is essential.  I look forward to continuing to foster the tremendous positive relationships I have developed at Essex PS and encourage others to stop by the office and introduce yourself.  You are also able to leave a voicemail message in my personal mailbox at extension 22005.  Together we will continue to make Essex PS the best place to grow, play and learn!  Together we are Home of the Phoenix – Where Excellence and Pride Soar!
