On behalf of the faculty and staff, welcome to Highland-Goffe’s Falls Elementary School and home of the Huskies!
As the new principal at Highland-Goffe’s Falls, I am very honored to be able to work with the students and their families in this very close-knit and supportive community. We are fortunate and grateful to have many parent volunteers, and a strong PTA that strives to provide the students at HGF with extensive educational opportunities. It is through the partnership of parents, teachers, staff, and community members that all students will greatly benefit.
I also feel very privileged to work with a fine staff of people. As we are preparing to open our doors for a new school year, the custodial staff has been hard at work making HGF shine, the teachers have been excitedly preparing classrooms, and office staff members have been busy completing a lot of the behind the scene activities. Teachers and staff should take pride in their laudable accomplishments!
I would like to welcome the following teachers to Highland-Goffe’s Falls:
Kindergarten: Beth Demers
Grade 1: Mary McGrath and Rebecca Ayotte
Grade 2: Jeff Record
Grade 5: Kerstin Dumas
Music: Barbara Schwalbe
I am delighted that these individuals will be joining our community!
The 2014-2015 school year looks to be an exciting one as we will be focusing on strengthening reading, writing, and math skills, and integrating and increasing the use of technology as we prepare our twenty-first century learners for success. Highland-Goffe’s Falls School is a place where people are committed to providing each child with a valuable learning experience. It is a pleasure to be a part of this fine community!
