Dear Parents/Guardians:
I would like to take this opportunity to share my eagerness about starting my 3rd year as “your” Principal at Leighton Elementary School. I am excited to work with your child/children and our staff is committed to making Leighton School a place where all children can reach their full potential and in turn be fully prepared and life ready :0) I begin each year thinking about new beginnings, which are always a motivation for our staff, as well as myself, because we know as a Leighton Learning Community it is our job to inspire your child, in a way that leads them down a path of lifelong success, no matter where they may end up in life. Our families have great expectations of us and we in turn have the same for you. Please let us know if you need our help with anything. We will do our very best to meet your needs. We know that communication is the key to a successful classroom and overall school experience for your child. Please be present with us in this process. Our number is 315-341-2700. As most of you know I have two sons, both of which are very different. How and why is this important? I am so glad that you asked! Your children are “our” children during the instructional day. What they receive from one teacher/staff member can and will be very different than what they may receive from another. In the end it is these different experiences that will be the tools that your children will use as they embark on different stages in their lives. Please let our staff give your children all of these great experiences. As the summer winds down and the school year starts to unfold, please always know that I am available to meet with you. Please give me the opportunity to solve any problem that you may have and always know that if I can’t solve the problem, I will find someone who can. Success in school is always a team effort and it is always about our children and how we can help them become an active part of the community around them. I look forward to working with this school community during the 2018-19 school year and beyond. If you have questions or just want to say hello, please feel free to contact me at the school or simply come on in and introduce yourself. Together for kids,

Ms. Shore
