Welcome to a New School Year 2016-2017
We are very happy to have you join our family of learners. I am excited to meet each and every one of you personally so that we can begin to build our partnership in support of your child. At The Walter H. Crowley Intermediate School 5, there are also many other members on our team including teachers, administrators, and support staff who are all committed to your child’s academic success. We look forward to working together to make this a wonderful year of learning and growth for your child.
One of the keys to your child’s success will be your ongoing involvement in our school community. Throughout the year, you will have opportunities to meet your child’s teachers, attend information sessions as well as trips, workshops and event we host to celebrate our students success. We also need you to participate in the Parent’s Association and if you can spare sometime out of your busy schedule we will like you to volunteer to help us with the many thing we do in our school. I am available; if you have any questions need information, and to help you in any way possible.
Please feel free to come to my office call or email me when you need my assistance or just stop by to say hello. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you and your child get settled at school
