    Greetings, Glades families! It is an honor to be serving as your 6th grade assistant principal. My vision for our school community revolves around our school's three core principles to engage, educate, and elevate. 

    Engage: I am committed to fostering a school environment where students, teachers, staff, and parents feel connected and valued. Through open communication and collaboration, we will work together to create a positive and inclusive learning environment that encourages active participation to help every child be successful. 

    Educate: Education is the heart of everything we do. At Glades, we pride ourselves in providing high-quality and innovative teaching practices that inspire a love for learning for all students. One of our goals is to empower our students through knowledge and acquisition of life-long skills to reach their full potential and become competent citizens.  

    Elevate: As we embark on this educational journey together, my goal is to elevate the overall academic and personal growth of each student. By implementing targeted support, embracing new ideas, and continuously improving our practice, we will ensure that every student can thrive and succeed. 

    If you ever have any concerns or feel the need to speak with me, don't hesitate to pick up the phone or stop by the school.

    On behalf of our staff, I am happy to welcome you to our school! It is my pleasure to serve as your 7th grade assistant principal for this year. I am excited to support you and your child during this school year. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.

    We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she: 

    1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience 

    2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers 

    3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills 

    4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life 

    5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject 

    6) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college 

    If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, please feel free to contact me or discuss them with your child’s teacher. 


    Sincerely, Eric D. O'Neal
