Welcome to Nags Head Elementary School and the 2019-2020 school year!
I am excited and honored to work with the staff, students, and families at Nags Head Elementary School! The NHES staff is committed to providing the very best educational opportunities to prepare our students to be globally competitive. Our staff creates a positive learning environment with high expectations for all. We build upon a solid foundation of basic skills with emphasis on using higher order thinking skills.
We strongly believe that the parents/guardians of our students are partners in the education of the children. Cooperation and communication between the school and home play a major role in the academic success of our students. Additionally, we appreciate the generosity and support of our community business partners. Their continued support plays an integral role in recognizing the academic achievements of our students.
As a Professional Learning Community, we work cohesively together as a collaborative team to meet the needs of our students. The entire staff is focused on student learning. Systematic interventions are provided to ensure all students receive support and enrichment to meet their individual needs. The three R’s - Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships, are the driving force behind all of our lesson planning and activities.
As part of our character education program, we embody the philosophy, “If it is to be, it is up to me.” Working together, our goal is for all students to achieve their maximum academic potential.
We are committed to “Riding the Wave of Success” for every student at NHES!
My door is always open. Stop in, call, or email me. I am here to do whatever I can to ensure your child has an exciting, challenging, and productive year at NHES!
