Mrs. Tamika Taylor-Ivory
I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2018-2019 school year! Summer has come and gone, and we must move forward with many exciting changes to follow. We have been very busy this summer preparing for the arrival of our students.
I am privilege to have the opportunity to return this school year as your principal and I feel honored to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, our wonderful students, and all of the supportive parents.
This summer, our teachers have been preparing for teaching the essential knowledge and skills required by the state of Ohio. They have attended professional development trainings and are prepared to implement many new strategies to differentiate the instruction for all our student's needs. Our teachers have been working hard in preparing their classrooms and lesson plans that promise to make for another exciting and productive year at Miles Park School.
As demands and complexities of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to ensure that our children reach their potential. We believe that all of us- the school and the community must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for all our students. We believe it is everyone's responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful and responsible.
It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school. Up-to–date and additional information will be sent to you through weekly "Friday Folders" and will appear on our school website. We will continue to use our telephone "school messenger" for reminders of upcoming events. We invite you to be an active participant at Miles Park School. Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the PTO, special event participation or member of one of our school community, you are encouraged to be involved!
Inclosing, 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. I look forward to seeing many new and familiar faces on our first day of school.
-Mrs. T. Taylor-Ivory,
Miles Park Principal
