I am very excited to begin my fourth year as principal at Our Lady of the Wayside. Our Lady of the Wayside is a remarkable school community with great things in store for its future. As a school community we will continue to strive to be a healthy Catholic environment that provides a high quality education for its students. Through the advancements of our computer labs and the introduction of portable technology carts with projectors and document cameras, we are making quick strides to improve our use of technology as an instructional tool. Our teachers will continue to be encouraged to learn and grow as teachers as they take advantage of professional growth opportunities. Our greatest strength as a community is our ability to collaborate and come together to support one another. Through the continued dedication of the parents, teachers, staff, and parish community we will continue to improve ourselves and bring our school’s Strategic Plan to fruition.
