Students Meet Their Teachers at Thursday Open House

Parents and children came to Siler City Elementary School to meet their teachers Thursday, August 21st.

Students greeted school staff and each other and checked out the places where they will spend much of their days.

The annual open house at Siler City Elementary gives students and their families the opportunity to meet the teachers, tour the building and reconnect with each other before the school year begins.
Dr. Lawrence Savage Named Principal of Siler City Elementary

Dear Siler City Elementary Family:
 
Dr. Larry Savage photoDuring today's Board of Education meeting, Dr. Lawrence Savage was approved as the new principal of Siler City Elementary School. Dr. Savage was selected from over 20 applicants for the position.  He holds a master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), and he served as an ESL teacher for 13 years. Dr. Savage has also held central office leadership positions supporting ESL and mainstream teachers. Upon completion of his doctoral degree in 2012, Dr. Savage sought a school-level administrative position in order to work more directly with students again--his true passion.  Dr. Savage's administrative work at the school and district level coupled with his extensive experience with language learners and his knowledge of dual language programming in particular will serve him well as he partners with teachers, staff, parents, and community stakeholders at SCE to push students to new heights.
 
I have the utmost confidence that SCE will have in Dr. Savage and Mrs. Murray another phenomenal administrative TEAM! Together, they will ensure that the school continues to be a great place to work and learn.
 
A transition timeline and details about a time to meet Dr. Savage will be forthcoming.

Estimadas Familias de la Escuela Siler City Elementary:

Durante la reunión de hoy del Consejo Educativo, el Dr. Lawrence Savaje fue aprobado como el nuevo director de la Escuela Siler City Elementary. El Dr. Savage fue seleccionado entre más de 20 candidatos que aplicaron para el puesto. Él tiene una maestría en Enseñanza de Inglés como Segundo Idioma (ESL por sus siglas en Inglés), y se desempeñó como profesor de ESL durante 13 años. El Dr. Savage también ha ocupado puestos de liderazgo en la oficina central de un distrito escolar en apoyo de maestros de ESL y maestros regulares. Al terminar su doctorado en 2012, el Dr. Savaje buscó un puesto administrativo a nivel escolar con el fin de trabajar de nuevo directamente con los estudiantes - su verdadera pasión. El trabajo administrativo del Dr. Savaje en la escuela y el distrito, junto con su amplia experiencia con estudiantes de idiomas y su conocimiento de programación bilingüe, en particular, le será muy útil a medida que se asocia con los maestros, el personal escolar, los padres de familia y los miembros interesados de la comunidad de la Escuela SCE, para llevar a los estudiantes a nuevas alturas.


¡Tengo la mayor confianza de que la escuela SCE tendrá en el Dr. Savage y la Sra. Murray otro equipo administrativo fenomenal! Juntos, ellos se van a asegurar que la escuela sigue siendo un gran lugar para trabajar y aprender.


Enviaremos muy pronto el horario de transición y los detalles acerca de cuando conocerán al Dr. Savaje.
