On behalf of the staff at Elementary/ Middle Alternative Programs – EMAPs- I am happy to welcome all of you to the 2016 / 2017 school year! We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We will focus on making our vision and mission the core of our daily work with children, teachers and parents collaboratively creating an atmosphere of excellence for all stakeholders. We are unwavering in our goal to create excellence in instruction as will be evidenced in a school where safety, respect, accountability and support are expected. I am honored and privileged to lead a dynamic community where teachers, staff, community, and students work together to cultivate an environment where students achieve and believe in themselves and where rigor, care, and resiliency are highly evident. Your input, feedback, and support will be critical to my leadership, the teaching and learning environment and above all to the success of your child in our school. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential.
Ms. Rosa Carmon
