Putnam Families & Community,
I am honored to be your Putnam Principal this 2019-2020 school year. This is a milestone, as I am completing my 25th year as an educator with EPISD and begin my 11th year as an administrator. I am excited to celebrate Putnam's 60th Anniversary this year and for what the future holds for our students. Putnam has been a cornerstone in our community and holds many wonderful memories.
Our focus is to prepare our students for the 21st century and develop them as independent learners. Putnam Elementary is leading the district with Dual Language as students develop their knowledge of both languages as they become truly bilingual and enrich their learning through the implementation of the Active Learning Framework. Through the use of these instructional frameworks our Putnam students will thrive in our society and promote the district vision.
The key to a successful year is direct communication coupled with a productive parent-teacher relationship centered by the student's progress. Along with this implementation and use of a proven Social Emotional Learning (SEL), which guide the stakeholders that lead your students both socially, culturally and academically.
I would love to see you at our “Coffee with Principal” meetings that we schedule on a monthly basis. This is your opportunity to share ideas or give your input on planned events or other projects you deem essential to our school community.
Looking forward to a very notable 2019-2020 School Year!
