I am very excited and feel extremely fortunate to be a part of the amazing staff at Crim Primary School! As principal, my main goal is to ensure that every student is provided the highest quality of education possible in a safe and supportive learning environment. Working together as a team with our dedicated staff and parents, I am committed to helping each student achieve their very best.
The faculty at Crim are outstanding educators who work hard and are passionate about teaching. Staff are highly committed to providing the most rewarding education possible and making the process of learning an enjoyable experience. Our staff prides itself on student success and continues to move forward through thoughtful planning, maintenance of effective curriculum, and powerful partnerships with both parents and community members. Crim faculty and staff are motivated to work collaboratively to raise achievement of students and maintain the excellent reputation that Crim School proudly holds in the community.
Our motto is “Work Hard, Be Kind.” At Crim, kindness permeates our hallways. We promote respect, responsibility, and reflection at Crim. Students are encouraged to become responsible citizens in their behavior, work, and attitude. Students are recognized and recognize others for displaying admirable character traits. We strive each and every day to appreciate others and value the differences we bring to our school.
Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community. Education is a joint venture and we greatly appreciate the support you provide for your children at home and at school to help them meet their learning goals. We are fortunate to have a wonderful PTO who provides many opportunities that enrich our students and strengthen our school community. The more our school and families are joined as partners in education, the greater our chance for success.
We have so much to be proud of at Crim Primary School. There is a very rich history, and I am humbled by the opportunity to serve the Crim Primary School community. I look forward to working with you and your children during what is sure to be an exciting school year.
