From the Principal
Greetings Team Arden,
Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! We are excited to welcome you and your child to Arden Elementary School. Our motto for this year is “Stronger Together” and that means as a school community we will work collaboratively to ensure success for all! Our primary goal at Arden is to further develop the skills and gifts of your child through varied learning opportunities in a dynamic learning environment! Success is the only option at Arden Elementary!
For your child to be successful as possible, we need your help as well. We encourage our parents and community members to get involved. We know that when parents are involved in their children's education, the quality of the school improves and children do better in all areas. In order for this to happen, we need you to see that your child is at school every day, emphasize to your child the importance of putting forth their best effort, and praise their efforts when they have done their best. Our promise to you is that as a school staff we will give our best effort for your child every day!
In closing, we are thankful for the opportunity to serve such a great community of learners. All of us at Arden Elementary are committed to bringing out the best in our students by setting high expectations for citizenship and academics. Our mission sums it up: “We are Arden Elementary, a leader in transforming lives through education, empowering all students to achieve their potential and dreams. I look forward to serving as your principal for an AWESOME year!
