Dear Maize South Elementary Families,
I am pleased to welcome you back to the 2020-21 school year! I would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining Maize South Elementary this year and welcome back all of our returning families as well! MSE is home of the Wolves! I am honored to be your new principal. Some of you may know me from previous years as your assistant principal. I want to also welcome our new assistant principal Mr. Chalashtari (the kids call him Mr. C.). My vision, as the principal, is to ALWAYS put kids first! My hope is that all children will LOVE school and nurture a learning environment that is positive, safe, warm, caring, as well as a fun place to learn and grow.
I recognize the circumstances that surround this school year is not what we expected nor hoped for, but with your help we will ensure your child’s success. We look forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. Our teachers understand that part of our children’s success relies heavily on the support offered both at school and at home and realize that a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education.
One of the greatest characteristics of the Wolf Pack is the genuine care and compassion shared between staff, students, and parents. Maize South Elementary is a place where staff and families come together to ensure that the children entrusted into our care grow to be productive, confident, compassionate, members of society. I look forward to an amazing year!
With warmest regards,
Carrie Thrash, Principal
