New Enter and Exit Doors

The doors students use to enter and exit our school building
have been changed for the new school year.

Students in Grades K, 4, and 5
will use the doors on the Front Patio | A-1

Students in Grades 1, 2, and 3
will use the door in the School Yard | A-2

Teachers will meet classes outside each morning and
walk them out each afternoon.

Beginning Friday, September 16th, we will have School Spirit Fridays!  Students and Faculty are encouraged to wear navy blue to show their Shoemaker Pride.  We will be selling school spirit wear in the next few weeks.   It will be an online sale with the option of shipping to you or school delivery.  We are excited about some of the new styles we chose.  In addition to the beginning of the year sale, we are also planning a school spirit sale for right before the holidays. 

Show Your Shoemaker Pride!

Welcome To The Captain William G. Shoemaker Elementary School

February 29, 2016

Dear Shoemaker Parents,

It is with great excitement that I write this letter to introduce myself as the new principal of the Shoemaker Elementary School.  I am honored to continue the great work that Mrs. Riley has been doing for 6  years at Shoemaker.

During the few weeks since my appointment, I have been spending time at the school and attending events getting to know the daily routines as well as meeting teachers, students, and parents. It has been very enjoyable and I have been able to see many of the structures that have brought success to the Shoemaker School. I am looking forward to continuing the development of these relationships now that I will be at Shoemaker full-time. 

I have worked in the city of Lynn for the last 12 years at a variety of grade levels.  I have experience working with students in all elementary grade levels including ELL students and students with disabilities. I taught grades 2, 3, and 4 but regularly worked in all classrooms during my time as Curriculum and Instruction Teacher.  During the last 3 years, I served as Program Specialist at Harrington School where I worked with teachers to support their classroom needs as well as the day to day running of the building with the principal. 

I look forward to getting to know you and your children better as I support their teachers, and the Shoemaker School as a whole.  I truly believe we are all part of the team that will lead to success for your children.  I encourage you to stop in or call me to discuss any questions or concerns you may have now, or at any point in the future.
