“Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.”
(William Butler Yeats)
Welcome to Calf Pen Meadow Elementary School. I have the privilege to serve as the interim principal of an amazing school community this year. Many heartfelt thanks to everyone who has welcomed me during the last few weeks.
At Calf Pen Meadow, our goal is to ignite a love of learning in every student. As a community we strive to foster meaningful relationships and build a safe, supportive environment that develops life-long learners who care and think deeply about their world.
In our school, students have access to an engaging and differentiated instructional program that is aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Our staff collaborates to ensure that all children can successfully meet the expectations of the curriculum and can achieve to their fullest potential. We must prepare each student not simply with the basic skills they need to be successful, productive citizens, but we must also spark a true thirst for knowledge in their minds. With a solid foundation from Calf Pen Meadow, it is our greatest hope that this spark will burn throughout their lifetime.
We also strive to foster deep and caring relationships with our students, their families and our greater community. Our active and involved PTA contributes in a positive and productive manner by collaborating with us to enrich our students' school life. These strong partnerships are a key to ensuring our students’ success and in cultivating the positive school climate we all have the fortunate opportunity to share.
Ginger Vail, Ed.D.
We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
