Under the leadership of Principle, Aaron Rose, Erickson Elementary has set a new standard for excellence in education. I am a volunteer in Mrs. Jan Duncan, a second grade teachers class. I have watched how gentle, yet authoritative she is. She works diligently daily with the children, even giving those who need special attention what they need. Under Mrs. Duncan’s tutelage I have watched the growth of the children entrusted to her care. The school is doing their part in the education of the children that attend Erickson. They can’t do it alone. Parents have an important role to play. Parents must reinforce at home what the children are taught in school.
I have also watched the interaction between the staff. They are professional at all times. Everyone I come in contact with has a smile and they say good morning to you. As a volunteer I enjoy being a part of this excellence. The atmosphere at Erickson Elementary is warm and inviting for staff, parents, children and volunteers.
Next Thursday, January 30, 2014 I will post a statement from Principle, Aaron Rose about his vision for the school.
