New principal joins Truman family

""Dear Truman Elementary School Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Truman Elementary School. I am honored to have been selected to join the Lackawanna City School District. Over the past eleven years I have worked as both a teacher and administrator, with my most recent experience coming from Buffalo Public School #17 where I served as the Assistant Principal. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Truman Elementary School, and to work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

The first goal I have set for myself is to get to know the students here at Truman. I will spend time with your children in their classrooms, during transitions, and in the cafeteria getting to know their personalities, learning styles, and interests. I will celebrate their successes, both small and large. I will encourage them every day and let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community. Please know that I will work tirelessly to ensure your children have the best possible experience while entrusted in our care.

As your Principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors - staff, students, and parents - are excited to be here. This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me with any questions or concerns you might have throughout the school year.

I am eager to begin working with our entire school community to help each student at Truman Elementary School meet their goals and have a successful school year.

Please stop by to say hello and introduce yourself. I look forward to meeting you soon!

Warm Regards,

Ashley Wakelee
Building Principal
Truman Elementary School
