wheeler2Dear Commodore Students and Families,


    On behalf of our Commodore staff, welcome back to the 2023-2024 school year.  We hope you had a wonderful and relaxing summer break and are ready to return.


    At Commodore we believe every child can learn at high levels.  We do this with the dedication of a highly skilled teaching staff and school-wide focus on STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics.   Our students will design, program, experiment and create as they complete hands-on activities that will develop critical thinking skills that will benefit them across the curriculum.  


    In an effort to support these achievements we are committed to addressing the social emotional needs of all of our students through the use of PBIS and Restorative Practices.  Following our guidelines of success, we will work to ensure that all of our students will C.A.R.E., demonstrating they Can use good judgement, Act with kindness, Respect themselves and others, and Engage in their learning.  We will focus on developing the whole child, celebrate personal growth, and ensure that our students are college and career ready.


    Along with teachers and staff, we will continue to build strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners.  We will use multiple forms of communication including phone messages, our school website, and social media platforms.  Our amazing Commodore staff will also connect with you through our virtual platform, Class Dojo.  We encourage you to join our monthly Parent Coffee Hours, School Site Council, ELAC committees, and various Family Nights that will reinforce a strong home-school connection.


    As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors; teachers, students, and parents are valued and proud to be a member of our school.  My door is always open and I welcome your input.  Feel free to call or email me to discuss any suggestions, ideas, or concerns you might have.


    The Commodore staff and I are excited to get started and to work with you and your child to help them have the best year ever!
