Dear Leighton families,

It is with great joy that I share with you what an exciting time it has been for me in working with all of your children, as the new Principal at Leighton Elementary School. I have started to get to know some of our families and I am amazed at all of the good habits that your children have come to school with. It is a tremendous honor to work here and I hope that in the next few months I will get to know each and every one of you a little better. My promise to parents/guardians is to be visible and easily approachable. Another promise is to resolve any and all concerns you may have in a timely and effective manner. Please reach out to me with any concern that you may have throughout the year. 

Your support and encouragement during the year is very important to the success that your child will have while here at Leighton. Please READ every night. I know that life can be busy but practicing good habits at home will prepare your children for excellence when they are at school. Sending me your children each and every day with a smile on their face is the other key to overall student success. The staff members at Leighton are truly amazing. They will communicate with you through agendas/newsletters throughout the year and they want to know what your needs are. If your child is struggling with their work please reach out to us. We want all students to be Fully Prepared and Life Ready! Again, thanks to all of you for the warm welcome. Each day that I get to work with you and your child is a gift. Even on Monday mornings.
Together for kids,

Ms. Shore
