It is my privilege and honor to serve as the Principal of Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School. I am looking forward to another exciting year of learning and growing with our students and working with our professional staff and you, our parents and community members.
My main goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment. Working together as a team with our staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best. We believe it is everyone's responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible. Every student is valued and worthy of our best effort.
As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us - the school and the community - must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for all our students. With that in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the PTA, or a special event participant, you are encouraged to be involved! Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child's school is directly related to a greater likelihood of academic success for their child.
If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child's teacher or me a call. I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family.
Thank you and kind regards,
Christi Butler, Ed.S.
