Message from the Principal

Greeting Students and Families: 

Welcome Back to the 2014-2015 school year!  I am honored to serve as the Principal of Russell H. Conwell 

Middle School. It is a privilege to lead this learning community during a time of incredible change and 

dearth of resources in the School District of Philadelphia.  However, knowing that the reason we are here is 

to cultivate the students makes me excited about the tremendous possibilities that we can accomplish 

together on their behalf this year! 

Last school year Dr. Hite, our superintendent charged us to “Create a Culture for High Achievement.”  This 

year he continues the focus in Action Plan v2.0 of “Making Schools Great!”  One of the goals is to ensure 

that every student graduates and is prepared for college and career.  This aligns with our current mission: 

 

A Challenging Educational Program 

Inspiring students to achieve intellectually and personally 

Caring and respectful individuals to guide the students 

Developing students who are resilient, equipped and socially responsible 

 

Again this year, we will accomplish this urgent task through a stimulating and comprehensive program 

despite the drastic cuts.  It is still our responsibility to ensure the safety of our students, develop their talents 

and watch them soar! 

I believe that genuine collaboration with students, parents, guardians and teachers fosters ownership of a rich 

school culture.  All of us supporting our Conwell kids to do well at school and in their lives is the 

responsibility of all of us.  I am blessed to have been selected to serve this community again this school year, 

and I pledge my commitment to work together as we strive to fulfill our district’s vision.  I look forward to 

getting to know you and your child this year.  Communication, patience, respect and cooperation will be the 

key to success for all at Conwell. 

 

The foundation of our future accomplishments will be to continue to provide our students with academic 

experiences that are rigorous, relevant and build lasting relationships. It is important that everyone who steps 

through our doors –teachers, staff, students, parents, and community members - are excited to be here! This 

attitude will allow us to embrace and meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive and nurturing 

environment. I look forward to continuing the Conwell legacy with our current students! 

 

 Sincerely, 

 

 

Erica M. Green
