Principal's Message

  • Howard JonesParents and students,

    Greetings and welcome to the 2021-22 school year!

    We are looking forward to having your child join the Wingate Oaks Family as we embark upon a 100% in-house instructional school day. I am excited as I begin my 1st year as principal and about the wonderful opportunities in store this year!

    I look forward to working with the remarkable staff and the entire learning community here at Wingate Oaks Center.

    My goal is to establish relationships with all parents, students, faculty, and staff, as well as to support and enhance the dynamic programs here.

    I also want to assure you that your child will receive the best social, emotional, and academic support available.

    I believe that all children have gifts/talents, and we as educators must provide guidance and support to ensure all students are achieving their maximum potential.

    I realize that our communities are experiencing unprecedented times, as we all continue to navigate through this pandemic.

    My staff has prepared the campus to receive students and we are implementing procedures that are necessary in protecting the health and well-being of all students, teachers, and staff.

    We require strict adherence to CDC guidelines, including physical distancing and PPE.

    So, gear up for an outstanding school year. I look forward to meeting you all. I’m only a phone call away and my office is always open to all stakeholders.

    Best wishes and looking forward to a successful and productive school year.


    Dr. Howard F. Jones
