Dear Haviland Families,

I am excited and honored to welcome each of you to our Haviland School Family! Our dedicated staff care deeply about their students and foster an environment of excellence by setting high expectations for learning, utilizing research based strategies and continuously strive for improvement. Students are encouraged to become life-long learners who persevere, develop a strong work ethic, and are not afraid to take a risk. We are a proud Leader in Me School and embody the 7 Habits in creating a culture of caring, responsibility, and respect in which all students thrive.

Your child’s education is a joint venture between home and school. A strong home-school partnership is essential to maximize student learning. We need to work together to empower children with the intellectual, creative, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically and socially successful. As we work with your students to help them achieve greatness, we very much appreciate the support that parents give their children at home.

The Haviland parent community is wonderfully supportive and volunteer countless hours to support our students. We invite you to become an active participant in our school family whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the PTA, or participate in special building events. Your contributions are invaluable and we encourage you to be involved! Research on schools clearly demonstrates that parent participation in their child’s school has a positive impact on academic success.

I look forward to working with each of you and developing a partnership which will assist in providing the best possible education for your child. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely,

Michelle Sullivan
