Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!
I am excited and honored to be the newly assigned member of the Emma C. Smith Elementary School Family. It is truly an honor and a privilege to lead a school with enthusiastic students, supportive families, and a dedicated staff. I am passionate about continuing the tradition of fostering a positive learning environment and empowering students to reach their full potential.
Teachers and staff are dedicated to creating a school community that prioritizes student-centered learning, effective communication, and the holistic development of every child. To that end, professional development opportunities will be available for teachers and staff to ensure they have the tools and support necessary to deliver high-quality education.
At Smith Elementary, we believe that every child deserves a nurturing and inclusive learning environment where they can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. I am committed to promoting a school culture that values diversity, encourages collaboration, and embraces the individual strengths of each student.
Cultivating a strong partnership with parents and recognizing the crucial role they play in their child’s education is extremely important to me. I aim to establish open lines of communication, encouraging parental involvement and collaboration to create a united front in supporting student success.
In closing, I am committed to leading Emma C. Smith Elementary School into a bright future, ensuring that every student receives the support and opportunities they need to flourish and thrive.
Mrs. Marni Angelo
