Message from the principal
When I walk through the doors of Mansfield Elementary School my heart beams with pride. I am so proud to be able to serve at a school filled with capable, dedicated employees and amazing students. The troubles of the world seem to fade as they are replaced with numerous acts of kindness. One such act was demonstrated by Mr. Davis, our evening custodian. Mr. Davis spent part of his Thanksgiving break cleaning and waxing the cafeteria floors. We all were in awe when we walked into the cafeteria last week…the floors were absolutely BEAUTIFUL. But, the kindness didn’t stop there. Ms. Pam Jones, driver of bus #132, graciously volunteered her time and energy to help beautify our school by decorating the Christmas tree located in the foyer. Though this may seem small to some, it has brought HUGE smiles to the faces of our students as well as our faculty and staff.
Our paraprofessionals continue the acts of kindness by reporting to school early to be on duty so that our students may begin eating breakfast. They also often spend time after school ensuring that Pre K and kindergarten students are safely escorted to their rides during car pickup. Mrs. Dickson, one of our 2nd grade teachers, has weathered the storm on multiple occasions by using her golf-sized umbrella to assist other teachers in getting their students loaded onto buses during heavy winds and rain. The kind acts extend beyond our school. Mr. Paul Loupe, a local Horace Mann agent, donated four bicycles to us. These bikes will be given away to 4 fourth grade students at our LEAP Parent Informational Meeting held on Monday, December 12, 2016 from 4:30-6:30 PM. Our teachers have been working extra hard preparing useful information that will help you prepare your 3rd or 4th grade child for the LEAP test that will be administered in May of 2017.
I have learned firsthand small things that we may take for granted have BIG impacts. I encourage you all to find a way to share a small act of kindness. It may be just what someone needs to brighten their day. I know that once we choose to work together, we can bring about positive and lasting changes to our school and our community. I pledge to assist in these efforts as I am always just a phone call/email/Dojo message away. I pray that we all have a wonderful week.
