    Dear Students, Families and Community,

    I am honored, privileged and truly excited to lead McNab Elementary School. As a professional educator for more than 25 years, I can say that this year will be a different year, and I couldn’t think of better hands to be in other than with your teachers, staff and the community at McNab Elementary School.   

    As we enter the 2020/2021 school year, I look forward to working shoulder to shoulder with each of you to elevate McNab Elementary to new heights of academic achievement and community recognition as we work through the challenges of virtual learning.  Know this, your teachers have been preparing throughout the summer to create a seamless process from our beautiful school to a “Top Notch” virtual classroom. 

    McNab Elementary will continue to provide students with a safe, caring and engaging school atmosphere that will focus on learning, academic achievement and providing a sound foundation to build upon their educational journey. 

    As you will see, I am a firm believer in tailoring our educational tools to meet the individual needs of each student as much as possible. Furthermore, I am firm believer of parent involvement and community involvement and encourage you to be proactive using teacher websites, social media, and contact information to remain connected to our school and be actively participating in your child’s education. Children benefit greatly when parents/guardians take an active role in their child’s education. It has been proven that when students have parental support at home, they enjoy their learning and school life even more. Student’s attitude and perception of school improves as they develop more self-confidence on their road to becoming life-long learners and solid contributors to our community.  Now more than ever we need this parental engagement as we navigate in our virtual world. 

    Please do not hesitate to reach out to me for any assistance you may need.  I look forward to meeting everyone just as soon as we are permitted to come back to our beautiful campus.  I wish everyone much success this school year!  Stay safe and stay well. 


    Your proud principal,

    Dorys Palacio
