Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! If you are a returning family, it is good to have you back and if you are new to Green Run, we are excited that you joined our family. The love and commitment of our staff and the academic excellence demonstrated by our children is evident to anyone that enters our school. All signs point to another incredible and productive school year. Our skilled and devoted teachers and support staff are already planning and preparing for your child(ren). The office team is devoted to registering new families, updating student files and ordering needed materials. Hard working and conscientious custodians have spent the entire summer thoroughly cleaning the facility.

Today, more than ever before, we need to support students with social and emotional learning (SEL), which offers opportunities to improve practices, teaching children to make appropriate behavior choices. SEL is a process through which children acquire and effectively apply knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions. These skill sets allow them to achieve goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish, and maintain positive relationships and make responsible decisions. SEL will continue to be one of our school-wide focuses.

The pandemic drew attention to economic and academic differences. Interacting with families during this non-traditional time made us realize the importance of the partnership that we have between school and family. Kudos for your resiliency, flexibility and always putting children first. As we prepare to ready students for the future, we will engage them by teaching with fidelity and effectively integrating systems of support such as Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS). This framework is intended to boost self-regulation and emotional wellness that will be carried on through lessons by teachers and the support of our entire faculty and staff. More information is forthcoming.

Our team will continue to embed critical thinking and collaboration across all content areas. We will remain laser focused as we meet diverse needs of our students often through small group instruction and across all grade levels. One of the greatest characteristics of the Green Run learning community is the genuine care and compassion shared between staff, students, and parents. Green Run Elementary is a place where staff and families come together to ensure that the children entrusted into our care grow to be productive, confident, compassionate, members of a global society.

Teachers will inform each family of the platform they will use to communicate with you and your family. I will send home newsletters and Alertnow messages throughout the year to keep you updated about events and share important information. Working together will make our school a great place to work, learn, and grow. I look forward to an amazing year!

Sincerely,

Dr. Sheila Wynn Principal

Green Run Families,

It is truly an honor to be a member of the Green Run Elementary family! As I embark on my fourth year at Green Run, I look forward to collaborating with you. I am very excited to hear students in their classrooms, hallways, lunch, and throughout the building! This year we will bridge students’ learning with previous and current skills to continue to ensure they are future-ready and successful. Social emotional learning will be integrated throughout the instructional day to support students’ needs. The social emotional learning will support students becoming future-ready for a global society. I look forward to another great year with the families of Green Run!

Sincerely,

Dr. TaShenna Wiggins
Assistant Principal
