As many of you are aware, I am expecting a daughter to be added to our family over Spring Break. She is expected to arrive on April 3rd. As a result, I will be going on maternity leave for the remainder of the school year. I will be returning for the second half of the summer to prepare and plan for the 19-20 school year.
During my absence, an interim principal has been assigned to support our school. The interim principal's name is Mr. Aaron Moore. Mr. Moore was a principal at Mountain Park Elementary up until 2004 in Fulton County Schools. After his work in Fulton, he moved to Dekalb County Schools where he worked in both the elementary and middle school settings. We had the opportunity to meet and I can assure you that he is a kind, approachable leader. After spending time bragging on our amazing staff, students, and parents, we toured the school where he was able to meet many students and staff. His email will not be set up until his official start date on April 8th. His email will be firstname.lastname@example.org. Below is a letter that Mr. Moore has prepared to introduce himself to all of you:
"It is with great honor that I introduce myself, Aaron Moore, as the substitute principal of your school while Ms. Malekebu is on maternity leave. I am a retired educator with 29 years of service to the Atlanta, Fulton and DeKalb school systems. In my roles as teacher, administrative intern, assistant principal and principal, I have always attempted to rely on the expertise of the people I worked with. That reliance will continue with my assignment at Haynes Bridge Middle school. I look forward to working with all of you and to finish this school year strong! I also look forward to meeting with students, parents, and staff in the coming months and if you have questions, please feel free to contact me."
If you have any questions for me, please reach out by the end of this month so I can get back to you before I go on leave. I will officially say farewell for this school year—-next week :)
