A Message from the Principal

  • cassie Dear Apollo Families:
     
    I'm delighted to welcome all of our students back into our building for the 2021-2022 school year at Apollo.

    Since March 2020 our school community has been scattered, with some of our students in the classroom and many more connecting remotely, and we're excited to see our hallways and classrooms once again filled with learners. Here, you will find a sense of family unparalleled in other elementary schools. Our diversity makes us strong, and it’s that diversity that makes Apollo such a special place to be.

    Please know that it takes much more than just our staff to enable success for our students; it takes a partnership between school and home. We encourage you to get involved in any and every way that you can this year.

    Don’t hesitate to contact me as the year progresses. It’s going to be an amazing year at Apollo!
     
    Your Partner in Education,

    Cassandra Schwartz
    Principal

    Estimadas familias de Apolo,

    Me complace dar la bienvenida a todos nuestros estudiantes a nuestro edificio para el año escolar 2021-2022 en Apollo.

    Desde marzo de 2020, nuestra comunidad escolar se ha dispersado, con algunos de nuestros estudiantes en el aula y muchos más conectados de forma remota, y estamos emocionados de ver nuestros pasillos y aulas una vez más llenos de estudiantes. Aqui, encontraras una sensación de familia incomparable a otras escuelas primarias. Nuestra diversidad nos hace fuertes, y es esa misma diversidad que hace Apolo un lugar tan especial.

    Por favor, sepa que se necesita mucho más que nuestro personal para posibilitar el éxito de nuestros estudiantes; se necesita una colaboración entre la escuela y el hogar. Les animamos a participar en cualesquiera y en todos los sentidos posibles este año escolar.

    No dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo a lo largo del año. Va a ser un año increíble en Apolo!

    Su socio en la Educación,

    Cassandra Schwartz
    Directora
