Message from the Principal

Dear Students, Parents, Neighbors, and Community Members,

     I am honored to accept the appointment as the new principal of George W. Childs Elementary School.  The school has a wonderful reputation for hard-working, respectful students, committed and supportive parents, and active community members.  These first three months at the school have shown me that these reputations are well-earned.

     I bring a reputation as a dedicated and demanding leader, and as an advocate for our children.  That reputation was also earned.  I expect the most from my students and staff.  High self-esteem doesn't come from half-hearted efforts.  Hard work will give you high self-esteem, and the world will respect you for it.

     I expect our students to bring the PSSA scores back to the top levels where they belong.  I expect them to participate in a multitude of challenging academic activities as well as enriching multi-cultural events.  When our students leave Childs School, they should have their hearts and brains filled with significant memories for a lifetime.  They will be ready for success in high school, college, and life.

     Feel free to schedule a tour of our lovely historic building and see our precious children hard at work.

 

Sincerely, 

Dr. Eileen F. Coutts
