Dear Truman Elementary School Families,

It is hard to believe that it is almost time to begin the new school year. Our staff have been working hard this summer preparing the building for your child’s arrival. The classrooms are bright and cheery, our floors are freshly polished, and we will have a newly installed sensory path for our students to use this year.

Please join me in welcoming our new staff members:

Ms. Peters and Ms. Szymanski are joining the kindergarten team from Martin Road. We also welcome Ms. Bala, our new reading teacher, from Martin Road. This summer we hired a new special education teacher, Ms. Shaver. We also have a new music teacher at Truman, Mr. Crecco. Ms. Zappia is joining our school as a speech therapist. Lastly, we welcome two new teacher aides to our building, Mr. Ahmed and Ms. O’Hara. We are fortunate to have some of the most dedicated educators I have ever had the pleasure of working with here at Truman Elementary School.

Early childhood education is a true passion of mine. As parents, you play the most important role in your child’s educational success. I am eager to work with you in building a strong foundation for your child to begin their educational journey.

Thank you for sharing your children with us. On behalf of the entire Truman faculty, we are looking forward to working collaboratively with you to continue the district’s goals for the 2019-20 school year. I am here to support you, so please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, suggestions, or concerns.

We look forward to welcoming you soon and wish you a wonderful rest of the summer!

Warm Regards,

Ashley Wakelee
