Dear Claremont Parents/Guardians:
It is with honor and great pleasure that I greet you as the new Principal of Claremont Middle/High School. My name is Angel Lewis and I am humbled and most appreciative to be part of the Claremont community. Throughout my 14 year educational career, the commonality of all my experiences has been the collaboration with others to provide the best possible education experiences for students. I intend to continue this best practice at Claremont to support the assurance of success for every Claremont student. In addition to my appointment, this year, we welcome Ms. Lesley Stepney, as Assistant Principal; whom is coming to us from Fallstaff Middle School and with years of experience in Baltimore City Public Schools that we anticipate will richly benefit our school community.
Great schools are the results of great staff and comprised of effective teams, so my primary objective will be to ensure that every student is receiving high-quality instruction and applicable related services from staff at Claremont. A team approach definitely is necessary to create and maintain the aforementioned desired learning environment. Subsequently, our theme this year is “We Are All on the Same Team”. With this in mind, there are some important events and dates upcoming for you to place on your calendar:
· Meet and Greet with Administrators: Friday, August 26, 2016 from 4pm – 6pm
· First Day of School: Monday, August 29, 2016
· Back to School Night: Wednesday, September 14, 2016 from 5pm – 7pm

Looking forward to meeting and collaborating with you! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas you would like to share.
Angel Lewis, Principal
