Principal's Message

Dear Alice Shaw Families:Jenee

The staff of Alice Shaw School welcomes you to our school community. We strive to ensure that the students receive a quality education that promotes excellence. To ensure student success, the staff, home and communities have unified to ensure that each student succeeds through quality programs. We continue to explore new educational ideas and trends to improve our effectiveness with children. We provide an environment where children grow to their full potential educationally, socially, and emotionally. We encourage all community members to visit our unique school and be active participants in the education of a child.

Our Parent-Teacher Associate (PTA) is a very dedicated group that helps to enhance the educational experience for all children. We invite you to get involved and enjoy the journey with us.

Thank you for making sure that your child is here and ready for school everyday. Attendance is important to all of us and important to your child's success here at Alice Shaw School. If a child misses too much school, it can have a detrimental affect on academic performance. We encourage you to call in when your child has to miss school and ask for classwork/homework so that he/she can make up the work that has been missed. Again, thanks for your help in this very important matter.

We are eager to join with you in providing the best possible learning experiences for your child. Together we will make this the best year possible for the Alice Shaw School community of learners.  If you have any questions or concerns, please stop by the office or email me.

Best regards,

Jenée Severance
