Ms. Ryan's Principal Message
"EDUCATION IS THE KINDLING OF A FLAME; NOT THE FILLING OF A VESSEL."
Welcome to our school, Macy Elementary, ‘Home of the Soaring Eagles.’
In 2016/17, Macy is on a course for a productive and wonderful year and maintains its place as a most respected campus in our community. We continue our work as a top achieving school within California.
Macy is one of five elementary sites in the Lowell Joint School District. We maintain an average enrollment of 540 students and operate 18 self-contained classrooms, (kindergarten through sixth grade). The campus has a resource center and two district special day classes. Macy’s English Learner (EL) population is ‘small and scattered’ and all teachers are certificated to meet the needs for developing English proficiency in students.
As we turn towards a new year in 2017, the Macy families and staff reflect on having received the 2016 California GOLD Ribbon School Award and the 2010 California Distinguished School Award.
At Macy, the teachers work diligently to uphold the rigor of our academic program and to this end; students are challenged to embrace their full learning potential. Teachers implement lessons found in the District Patriotic Guide; where social responsibility and good citizenship are emphasized in order to foster a strong appreciation of America’s great heritage. This knowledgeable and energetic staff excels in all professional requirements and teachers work with a spirit of collaboration as they share ideas and strategies with enthusiasm.
The social well being of the children is of great importance to the staff and I. We operate several programs specifically designed to promote the emotional welfare of these terrific kids and when we return from the holidays; Macy will be launching our newest program entitled, “Dude Be Nice!” DBN Week will support the positive climate and culture already found within our walls and in January, students will participate in activities which recognize those who need a kind note, a laugh, or a friend on campus. Staff members who would otherwise go unrecognized for the service they provide, and the selfless manner in which they provide it, will likewise, be honored.
The school theme this year taps into a common phrase used by the entire Macy student body during our monthly award’s assemblies and in classrooms too; this is, “Macy Ohana – No one is left behind, or forgotten.”
Thank you, one and all, for joining us in our journey this year! Together we are making a tremendous difference in the lives of our children, each and everyday!
Macy Fun in the Rain!
