Principal's Message

Welcome all parents and students to the new school year. I am very excited to be your principal for the 2017-18 academic year at Extera 2nd Street. It is my hope that as the year progresses you will get to know the staff, the programs and the policies we offer at Extera 2nd Street are intended to improve academic outcomes and build a strong school community. It is the goal of the staff at Extera to work with you to create a rich learning environment for all students. Student success is a shared responsibility between the school staff, students, parents, and the community. In that effort, I believe that we can best achieve this by working together while always doing what is best for our young scholars.


Together we can accomplish anything, and our community will benefit from our collective action. It is my hope that you will meet any challenges with determination and excitement and celebrate all that makes everyone special. Education is a joint venture between school and home. As we work with our students to help them learn about the world around them through the curriculum, site-based learning experiences, and daily learning opportunities, we very much appreciate the support that parents give their children at home as they strive to reach their learning goals. The foundation of a successful school is the cooperation between the students, staff, parents and community. We value parents as a essential partners as we strive to improve learning. Your contributions are invaluable to the school through volunteer time and support of school activities. I look forward to working with you and developing a relationship that will assist in the growth of your child/children.
