Principal's Corner

September 2018

Greetings BOES Bobcat H.E.R.O’s,

Welcome to another adventurous year at the Barack H. Obama Elementary School.  At the close of the 2018 academic year, Superintendent Gray assembled a team of district and community stakeholders to participate in a strategic-planning meeting.  The team was charged with transitioning the district from the building stages of our previous Brighter Future goals to the next level of Performance, Passion, and Purpose.  Using past data and goals, the team reviewed the information and established five SMART goals for our district.  The goals’ concentrated on the area(s) of innovative practices, academic excellence, community & parental engagement collaborative communication and accountability.  In support of these goals, BOES has aligned our initiatives and actions to the five domains.  

This year, we will continue to support our previous initiatives and have introduced several new ones to enhance the educational program.  Our student STEAM, music, and art programs have been enhanced to provide students with an optimal learning experience.  Our art and music teachers both have 21st Century teaching and learning experience; a prerequisite skill for college readiness.   At BOES, we are working on improving our communication with our Bobcat families and community at large.  Our quarterly newsletters, monthly calendar updates, and weekly reminders keep everyone informed of school functions and other upcoming events.   

At Barack H. Obama Elementary School, we support positive behavior through praise and recognition.  Obama Behavior Intervention or OBI (pronounced ‘Oh-Bee’) is our behavior program which applies to building administration, staff, students and the community.  We urge Bobcat family members to always offer praise before making an observation or applying an intervention.  The purpose of our work is always; to build, not destroy.  Our theme at the school is, At BOES, we are H.E.R.O.’s: Helpful, engaged, respectful and on-task.  I look forward to meeting our parents and community members in the near future.  

We are ready, we are BOES!  

Proudly Yours, 

Reginald Mirthil, Principal/Lead Teacher
In 2019 it is BOES Forever!
