Dear Eliot Families,

Welcome to the 2017/2018 school year! The Eliot school mission statement reads, “Eliot fosters a love of learning in a community where everyone matters.” As your new interim Principal, I will continue to work with staff and families to create a safe, joyous and inclusive environment here at Eliot school.

Eliot school is a vibrant and diverse learning community. In the fall we anticipate approximately 390 students. We have families from all over the world and students that are native speakers of German, Spanish and Chinese to name a few. In the fall we will welcome 73 new students in grades K-5. I know you will join me in welcoming them to our community.

Our teachers and staff are committed to helping meet student’s individual needs. Teachers employ a variety of techniques based on best practices to ensure students understand the curriculum. Small group instruction, individual conferencing and assessment are just a few examples of how teachers work with students. As you well know, having a strong teacher/parent partnership is an important factor to student success. Please be sure to reach out to our staff if you have any questions or concerns.

I can be reached at 781-455-0452 ext 328 or Karen_Bourn@needham.k12.ma.us if youhave any questions or would like to say hello.

Have a wonderful school year,

Karen Bourn
