Office of the Principal


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 are excited to welcome our students back into the building. While we realize that the beginning of this year may have you feeling anxious and uncertain, please know that the Truman team will work tirelessly to ensure that you child is safe, cared for, and receives the best educational experience possible.

Please join me in welcoming our new staff members:

Ms. Shairi is joining our team as our new 1st Grade English as a New Language Teacher. We also welcome Ms. Catuzza, one of our new Teacher’s Aides. Lastly, we welcome two new preferred substitutes to our building, Ms. Zapp and Ms. Courtney. Ms. Zapp will begin the year in 1st grade for Ms. Heinen while she is out. 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 2020-21 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
Building Principal
Truman Elementary School

We look forward to seeing you at your child’s meet and greet!
