Welcome To The Captain William G. Shoemaker Elementary School

Effort Counts!  Try Your Best! You can do it!

We hope that every child succeeds and we will encourage all of our students to try their best at all times.  Effort is the key to success.  You can help out by encouraging your children to try their best in all that they do.  Working together we can help each child make progress toward the attainment of learning standards as well as their own personal dreams.

This year we will continue to send communications electronically as much as possible in addition to paper notices.  Check the website periodically.  I will try to post all notices that we send home from the office.  Also many teachers do a weekly or monthly newsletter to keep you informed of what is happening in the classroom.  We will set up the classroom pages so that we can post each classroom newsletter as they go home. 

The PTO is looking to spread out the volunteers so that a small group is not doing all the events.  Many parents are working and need to take time off to work a school event.  If everyone helps at just one event, any one parent is not becoming burdened with making it all happen.  Watch for more information and think about on which event you would like to help.  

We are all here for your children. Please let me know right away if there is something that is not sitting right with you or you have a question.  Most times it can be fixed or cleared up rather quickly when we put our heads together to problem solve.  Remember if I do not hear from you I may not know there is an issue.  Many times I am already aware of an issue and working on it.  Thank you for your patience when it takes a while to work some things out.

Sincerely,
Patricia L. Riley
Principal

Important Message From Principal Riley
November 24, 2015

Dear Parents,
It is with very mixed feelings that I have decided to retire at the end of February.  It has been very difficult coming to this decision.  I still love what I do and love being here at Shoemaker.  However, I need to retire while I can still do the things I want to do in my outside life.  Retiring mid-year is a very thoughtful and purposeful decision.  It is not what is good for me; it is what is good for the school and my successor.  Being a principal is very complex and it is difficult to come into the position on July 1 when school is closed and staff is not around.  Every year we change some things and maintain others, but we need to see what is working and what needs to be changed.  By coming in mid-year, my successor can get to know Shoemaker and be able to make these decisions ready to open a new year in September.  It helps to make the transition smoother.

As you know we added the Integrated COACh program this year and it is really going well.  If I thought at all I had to be here all year to make sure things were going well I would have done that.  The transition has been great.  The teacher teams have really formed partnerships and work incredibly well together.
A decision has not been made as to who will take over the principalship at Shoemaker.  I have spoken with Superintendent Latham and am confident that her choice will be made in the best interests of Shoemaker students and families.
It has been a pleasure to serve here at Shoemaker.  I will miss watching your children grow and learn throughout their elementary years but will think of them always.  I tell people that our Shoemaker students are so kind and empathetic.  It will be them that I miss the most.  You should be very proud of them!

Fondly,
Pat Riley
