Welcome from the Principal

August 8, 2017

Greetings Staff, Parents and Community Members,

I would first like to express how honored I am to serve as the Principal of Imagine Foundations at Morningside. It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year! As Principal, my vision for our school community is to ensure every scholar is achieving at his or her highest level in a restorative environment. In order to make this belief true, I need your input, commitment, feedback and support.

Over the summer, the leadership and I will work tirelessly and with integrity to ensure that we are improving systems and structures to support high expectations and increased student achievement for all students. We are reflecting on the previous school year’s data as we determine new goals and priorities. As a school community, we are going to improve our students’ school experience by providing highly effective instruction, creating a restorative learning-focused environment and using data to meet the individual needs of students.

We are planning to provide justice to our scholars by differentiating the academic supports we offer them. We will offer strategic interventions for students who are not currently meeting grade level expectations to close the achievement gap for them within 3 years, daily enrichment for all scholars to practice how to think critically and prepare for the PARCC assessment as well as Talented and Gifted (grades 2-5) and honors (grades 6-8) classes for students identified as exceeding expectations.

As the beginning of the school year approaches, I am eagerly looking forward to partnering with you as we work to ensure every scholar achieves at his or her highest potential. In the sprit of fun, I welcome you to support the Imagine Foundations at Morningside community in every way possible so we can ensure the needs of every child who walks through the doors of our school are met.

Thank you for choosing Imagine Foundations at Morningside as your workplace and where you educate and your children. I’m confident that together we will make a positive difference for our students and school community.

Best,

Principal Johnson
