Dear Etna Road Families,
My name is Tanisha Brown and I am extremely excited to introduce myself as your new Etna Road Elementary Principal. I have spent my entire career at Etna Road , serving in many capacities. I have been a classroom teacher, Literacy Coach, Title Teacher and Student Intervention Coordinator. I am looking forward to continuing to serve the Whitehall community in this new role.
While 2020 proved to be a difficult year, our staff, students and community are resilient and ready to make the 2021-2022 school year great! Our staff will continue to embody the words of our vision statement by providing a nurturing, safe and stimulating environment, where the focus is on the child. In a building that is filled with sights and sounds of joyful learning, where we celebrate and appreciate the uniqueness of each individual.
At Etna Road we encourage our students to SOAR like eagles every day by following these principles:
S = self control
O = on task
A = accountable
R = respect for all
We recite the Etna Promise every day on the announcements with the students:
I believe I can be a good student.
I believe I can achieve.
I believe if I work hard, I will succeed.
Therefore, I will work hard each day to do my best.
I can SOAR
I will SOAR
Please be sure to join your student's Class Dojo and log into the Parent Portal through Infinite Campus. These are great ways to track your student's progress and communicate with their teacher. We look forward to working with you this year!
