Principal's message

Dear Parents and Community,
Welcome back to the 2014-15 school year! I hope you had a restful and relaxing summer. Over the summer, I had the opportunity to reflect on the successes of the past year and to anticipate what lies ahead. I must say that I am very excited about the upcoming year!
At the beginning of every year, Principal’s and teachers, just like students, are excited for the first day of school and have their own set of butterflies. We want the year to go “just right”! We start the New Year with a set of goals that usually have something to do with self-improvement. I hope as we "ring in" the new school year that you will join me in setting some goals to improve student learning. Our expectations for our students at Wildfire are always increasing. Great schools can never afford to rest on our laurels and not continue to strive for increasing excellence.
Over the summer I read two great books about improving teaching and learning in the classroom. The first one was Teach Like a Pirate by Dave Burgess about increasing engagement and creativity in the classroom and the second was Quiet by Susan Cain. Quiet was about teaching and developing leadership in the shy or introverted child, which make up 35-50% of our student population. It is critical that we provide a complete learning experience for all of our children.
As we journey through this year, I hope to work with you to keep standards and expectations high and provide engaged and creative classrooms in alignment with our district’s plan of innovation in teaching. It is of the greatest importance that our students never feel that they cannot achieve to the highest standards.
Once again, Welcome Back! And thanks for choosing to be a part of Wildfire Elementary School in Paradise Valley!
Sherry Stillman
