Dear Staff, Parents and Students,
It is my honor and privilege to welcome you back to a new school year 2017-2018 as your new Principal of Duncan Elementary School. I am sincerely excited to be here, to carry on the excellent things going on at Duncan Elementary, to enjoy the standing traditions of the community and school, and to bring my personal enthusiasm for education and learning.
I am a firm believer in empowering teachers to foster learning, inspire creativity, and improve student outcomes. Because of this belief, I plan to continue in path of excellence by giving my full support to the relatively new programs that have been put in place such as Accelerated Reader, iReady Math, AgriScience, Aquaponics, and other quality programs. I am very impressed with the teachers I have met because of the love for teaching and for kids they have expressed. This love is what I believe makes for an excellent school and amazing classrooms!
In an effort to improve the safety, communication, and comfort of this campus, there are several ongoing building projects that may take us into the end of the semester. We have been installing a new intercom system, emergency/fire alarm system, AC units in the main gym, new carpet in several classrooms, and a new shelving storage for the library, just to mention a few. I ask for your patience and understanding as we all work around each other during this time of improvement.
Please mark your calendar for the Meat and Greet which is set for August 17th– All parents are invited – FREE FOOD!! I look forward to meeting as many of you as I can. I have heard nothing but positive things about this wonderful event and I am hopeful that once again we will have a fantastic evening to kick off the new school year.
I hope you all had a great summer filled with activities, fun, and relaxation. It seems like summer break is getting shorter and shorter. Regardless, with so many new things to look forward to, it is always fun and exciting to start a new school year. Again, welcome back!
Byron Bolen, M.Ed.
