It is an honor to be the Principal of Narcoossee Elementary and I look forward to a great year together. At Narcoossee, we ensure high levels of learning for all students. Thank you for visiting our website and becoming an active participant in our school. This year will be the best one yet, as we continue to foster a growth mindset in which ALL students can learn. We will build relationships with our students, parents, and community members and we invite you to become an active member of our school by joining our School Advisory Committee (SAC) and Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).
In addition, we encourage you to volunteer with Osceola Adults Serving and Inspiring Students (OASIS). You should sign up as an Oasis volunteer as soon as possible so that you can chaperone field trips or help our school throughout the day. Applications must be re-submitted every year.
Remember to continue checking our website for important dates or events. If you have any questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us and schedule an appointment. This will help all of us make better use of our time and ensure that you will have time to voice your concerns and share your ideas.
During the month of January, our school is focusing on reviewing Habits 1-4. Please take time at home to discuss these Habits with your child and talk about what each of them means and how these Habits can help each of us be more effective in all we do.
Habit 1 — Be Proactive (You're in Charge)
I am a responsible person. I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods. I do not blame others for my wrong actions. I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.
Habit 2 — Begin with the End in Mind (Have a Plan)
I plan ahead and set goals. I do things that have meaning and make a difference. I am an important part of my classroom and contribute to my school’s mission and vision. I look for ways to be a good citizen.
Habit 3 — Put First Things First (Work First, Then Play)
I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I say no to things I know I should not do. I set priorities, make a schedule, and follow my plan. I am disciplined and organized.
Habit 4 — Think Win-Win (Everyone Can Win)
I balance courage for getting what I want with consideration for what others want. I make deposits in others’ Emotional Bank Accounts. When conflicts arise, I look for third alternatives.
