Principal's Message

sinclair.jpgGreetings from Marengo Elementary School where we are committed to support self-directed, life-long learners as they grow into resourceful and productive citizens! Our school is a place where children are at the core of everything we do. Staff, students, and families are dedicated to providing quality work which is engaging, results in students learning meaningful content, and encourages every student to take risks in their learning and to use higher level thinking skills to increase academic achievement. It is my job as an educational leader to ensure that all our energies are focused on this vision and that students at Marengo develop the self-esteem and positive character needed to participate fully in our community of learners. 

Our teachers and staff have tremendous passion for the students and families at Marengo. That is evident as you walk around the campus and witness the many ways in which families are involved in the education of their children. Parents are our partners. We treasure and embrace all the ways families contribute to the success of our students: helping with homework, assisting teachers, working with the PTA, keeping children safe on the playground and at pickup, and sending their children to school prepared and excited to learn! 

Marengo professionals work diligently at using current research as well as collaborative conversations to strengthen our instructional program. Teachers work as a team to provide student-centered learning using developmentally appropriate curriculum and instructional strategies. We value the process that allows us to make decisions together while respecting our unique strengths. There is no one right answer, but we strive to find the way that leads to optimal student learning. 

Marengo Elementary School is a professional learning community that celebrates success while always challenging ourselves and finding ways to make our school even better. We care deeply about each other and foster that respect and compassion in the lives of our children. Whether we are focused on academics, behavior, or social interactions, goals are established, often met, and then new goals are set to respond to the needs of our children. This is the continuing cycle of our work. We recognize that we are all growing in this ever-changing world and are committed to being life-long learners.
