Principal's Message

Mrs. Merrie Maxon - Principal 
Mrs. Merrie Maxon


On behalf the of elementary faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. We are extremely excited about the ensuing school year and appreciate your partnership in education. 

The summer provided extraordinary opportunities for students to participate in enrichment opportunities, our garden to bloom into a dynamite space filled with vegetation, and the preparation of our building so that it is ready for our doors to open with the impressive cleaning that leaves the building sparkling. We are looking forward to having the building filled with students and the joy that they bring as they enter each day. We want our students to run into school every day and drag their feet when they head out.

We hope to see you at Open House on Wednesday, September 19th, for PreKindergarten, Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades from 6:00-7:30pm and Thursday, September 20th, for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades from 6:00-7:30pm. This is an opportunity for families to come and learn about the classroom expectations, the curriculum and learning opportunities your child will be presented with, and a chance to meet the teacher. It will also include an opportunity for students and parents to journey together on a scavenger hunt to find and learn about the happenings beyond the classroom and all of the different special areas classrooms. I look forward to seeing all of the new faces and all of the familiar faces at our Open Houses!

As we embark on the new school year, which is just around the corner, I am eager to pursue excellence and joy in learning with each and every child who we are fortunate enough to learn with! Thank you for partnering with us in education, as you are your child’s first and longest teacher. As always, I can be reached at or by calling (716) 934-2603, ext. 1100.
