Leona Cox Families:
My name is Heather Drew and I am very fortunate to serve as the Principal of Leona Cox Community School. Leona Cox is a place where strong connections are made between home and school and it is also a place where all staff members are committed to helping children Succeed Every Day! Our staff is excited to help continue to move Leona Cox and its students along the path of excellence.
I believe that one of the most important aspects of my work as the Principal of Leona Cox is continuing to build meaningful relationships with students, families, and teachers as well as with the greater Leona Cox Learning Community. This being said, it is very important for me, as well as Mrs. Toledo, our Assistant Principal, to be in the hallways, classrooms, on the playground and in the lunchroom building relationships with your child(ren) throughout the year. I have found that kids really appreciate a person who genuinely invests in them by listening, learning alongside them, and by being fair and consistent. In addition, it will be particularly important for me to make sure that you and your child feel safe and respected at our school. If you ever have a concern, please do not hesitate to call the main office or email me. I believe open communication is very important in a school, and for this reason, I will always encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher, to a member of the office staff, our assistant principal, or to me with any questions you may have.
At Leona Cox, we have many things to be proud of and I look forward to working as a TEAM. Our TEAM building begins at our first community event: What’s Your Win? assembly with guest speaker, Jeff Eben, on August 22nd at 8 am. Please be on the lookout for more information regarding this event as well as other family events. I look forward to meeting you and thank you in advance for continuing to provide support in this amazing learning community! Let’s keep our kids reading, writing and problem-solving throughout the year! I look forward to seeing you on August 22nd at the What’s Your Win? assembly.
Principal, Heather Drew
