    Dear Students,

    Families and Community, I am honored, privileged and truly excited to lead McNab Elementary. As a professional educator for more than 20 years, I can proudly say this is the pinnacle of my career, and I couldn’t think of a better place to continue my career in education.

    As we enter into the 2019/2020 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.

    My first priority and commitment is the safety of our students. McNab Elementary will 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.

    As a parent who helps their children succeed academically, they will gain a sense of pride in their children as well as in themselves. Being an involved parent demonstrates to your child that you sincerely value their education.

    I look forward to meeting you. I wish everyone much success this school year.

    Dorys Palacio

    Proud Principal
