Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones well and in good spirits! It’s very safe to say that my first two years as Principal of Elliott Street School are ones I will never forget. We have persevered through a global pandemic and have become an even closer school community in spite of physical distance. I am so proud of the collaboration, hard work, and dedication that has been exhibited by our Elliott family and I am extremely optimistic for what will come during the 2021-2022 school year. While we continue to face many challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the civil unrest in this nation, one important fact consistently remains true–the residents of our great city of Newark are resilient and possess the grit necessary to overcome any challenges we may face!
I am proud to announce that our Vice Principals Daniel Guerra, Emily Lamboy, Norma Ramos and Cristiana Santos are all back with us at Elliott this year! On behalf of our staff, we are extremely excited to begin the process of restoring normalcy for our students. This is something I did state at the beginning of last year, however we are much closer now to getting back to the world we used to know.
