Principal's Message

Dear Ginter Park Elementary School Community,

It is with great humbleness and enthusiasm that I greet you as Ginter Park’s new Interim
Principal.  As we enter this new school year, we will look closely at our student achievement data and
ensure instructional methods are meeting students’ needs in order for every child to succeed.
In addition to continually striving to reach higher levels of academic achievement for every
child, we will not forget that each student is a whole child with interests, dreams, and untapped
potential. What does this mean to you? I am asking for each family’s support to make sure that
each child attends school every day, and also takes advantage of opportunities to participate in
before-school and after-school activities.

I invite all stakeholders to become active participants in school activities as we endeavor to
enhance our overall school climate. Your presence makes a difference and we welcome you to
Ginter Park!

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. My door is always open!

Sincerely,
Alida Williamson Smith
