Message From The Principal
To All Parents, Guardians, Caregivers, and Students,
Welcome to the 2013 – 2014 School Year!!!
As the Principal at The William H. Ziegler Elementary School, I am pleased to welcome all new and returning students to our school. At Ziegler, we are dedicated to provide an outstanding instructional program and a positive learning environment that will effectively meet the educational needs of all its students.
My vision, for Ziegler Elementary School, focuses on a learning environment where all learners, children and adults, grow and succeed. Where teachers value and accommodate diversity of cultures, languages, learning rates, and types of intelligence. I will provide the required leadership to insure that all staff members work to support our learners, and expect the very best, because we believe in them. This year I am proud to announce that we are a Leader In Me school. The Leader in Me paradigm sees that every child is capable, every child is a leader.
At Ziegler Elementary School, we recognize that all students deserve the opportunity to develop their potential in order to establish and grow as responsible citizens in our community.Finally, families are recognized as necessary partners in the process of learning. At Ziegler, we support parents being involved at school and value their input in decision-making as we collectively work to create the very best learning opportunities for all of our children. Hope to see you soon!!!
All the Best.
Eatiquette Comes To Ziegler
The School District of Philadelphia (SDP), Vetri Foundation for Children, and the Independence Blue Cross (IBC) Foundation will launch the Eatiquette Program — which equips schools to prepare and serve cooked from scratch nutritious meals to children, and educates students and parents on the importance of nutrition. Serving more than 500 students at Ziegler, Eatiquette is essential to the “Eat Right” component of the IBC Foundation’s Healthy Futures program, a $3 million initiative focused on improving child wellness in the Philadelphia region.
