Dear Adelaide Families,
It is with great pride and excitement that I am Principal of Adelaide Elementary School. I have over twenty-three years of educational experience spanning grades K-12 as a teacher, school counselor, and a Dean of Students. This will be my third year as Adelaide’s School Principal. Prior to being Adelaide’s School Principal, I had a year of successful leadership as an Assistant Principal at Sequoyah Middle School. I am excited to bring my skills as an educational leader to your son’s/daughter’s school and to collaborate with you as a partner in education to ensure your child’s success.
Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Adelaide by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. We will focus on character education initiatives through Positive Behavior Intervention Support, Capturing Kids Hearts, fostering a nurturing safe environment for children, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted English Language Arts to increase students’ achievement, by providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.
The diverse student population at Adelaide Elementary School provides everyone with an awareness and appreciation for all cultures. The Adelaide staff are passionate, dedicated educators who set high standards of achievement for our young scholars and firmly believes that ALL our young scholars can be successful. We are determined to guarantee rigorous engagement in literacy, writing, math, and science, and provide individualized opportunities for student growth. To ensure this happens, we collaborate regularly around student learning, challenge one another, and seek to continuously improvement in teaching and learning. We set high expectations for ourselves and our young scholars, and work together in the process of achieving those expectations.
Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!
Michelle L. Frank
