Principal’s Message

August 2016

Welcome and or Welcome Back! - To all McPolin Elementary School Families,

Here we go everyone . . . and we could not be more ready or excited to the start of our best year ever at McPolin Elementary School. It is my great joy to be back at McPolin and starting my second year as principal of the “BEST” elementary school “IN” Park City. That is our on-going joke because we are the only Park City School District elementary school that is actually in the town limits of Park City. And yet . . .. No joke! Our goal and commitment is “Every Student, Every Day, NO Excuses!”

I want to use this letter for a couple of quick and important pieces of information. And there will be plenty of information to follow. What I know after 28 years as a PROUD public educator and a 15-year veteran administrator – it is all about communication, communication, COMMUNICATON. I encourage all families to immediately introduce yourselves to this year’s English and Spanish side teachers, and just as important, to get to know the school secretary, Sara Simmons. She is approachable, “all knowing,” and your inside voice to “all things McPolin.”

However, I further encourage you to build a safe, open, and on-going relationship with your child/children’s teachers. Create a system for how you can stay current with the teacher and classroom. Communication can be face-to-face as you come to school, phone calls, texting, e-mails, or scheduled meetings. My support for all of our teachers to manage all situations could not be stronger or more confident.

Research is a word bantered about in our society and “education” all top frequently. In today’s world there is an “endless” supply of “research” on just about anything. What I know, what I have witnessed, and what I fervently believe both as an educator and a parent is the more families and schools work together, the more students succeed. The “research” and evidence is indisputable. Here is just one example, eric.ed.gov/?id=ED315199: nothing more consistently indicates a student’s success than the support and positive involvement of the family with the school, the teachers, and the student. The best way to start that positive and supportive “involvement” is to have on-going communication.

My other “piece” of exciting information is about McPolin being a school-wide dual immersion school, the staffing to support the school-wide model, and most importantly the support from the Park City School District and Governing Board of the McPolin School-wide model. YES! We are a school-wide DUAL LANGUAGE IMMERSION SCHOOL with Spanish as the target language. YES! We are a four-section school. What is that Mr. Edmiston? That means we have four classrooms in every grade other than fifth grade, which is a two-section grade. What this further means is we have dedicated teachers to each grade – we no longer have teachers splitting two grades as well as “splitting” their efforts and their focus while doubling their work. Best of all is the impact the additional staffing has had on reducing class sizes. This year’s class sizes and the staffing are amazing. Please join the McPolin staff and share appreciations as you can with the district leadership – they are supporting students!

And with that I repeat my excitement and energy towards making this the best year ever for McPolin elementary students, families, and staff. Enjoy the rest of your summer and see you soon!

Sincerely,
Bob Edmiston
