And a note about the future
On a personal note, after thirty-five years in education, the last fifteen as Principal at Barnstable-West Barnstable Elementary, I have decided to retire at the end of this school year.
I am one of those lucky people who enjoys his job and all the people I interact with on a daily basis. While each day may bring a new challenge there is also the opportunity to observe the growth and energy of my students (which is the reason I entered this profession in the first place). Yet, it is time for me to begin a new phase of my life. It is also a good time for a new leader to take the helm. BWB has only had three Principals in its fifty-eight years of existence. I believe that every organization can be invigorated when there is a leadership change; so too can BWB Elementary.
A search committee comprised of faculty, parents and other school system personnel will probably be put together in January. I will keep you apprised of details as they develop.
thank all for your past and continued support as we proceed to a productive and
positive rest of this school year.
The Mission of Barnstable-West Barnstable Elementary School is to promote academic excellence, integrity and respect for others; inspiring children to become lifelong learners and contributing citizens of the world.
