June 15, 2015


Dear Parent/Guardian, Students, Families, and Community Members,

Next month we will begin the 2015-2016 school year.  I am excited to introduce myself to the Foose Community as your new principal.  I have served in the Harrisburg School District in various teaching and administrative roles over the last ten years at Rowland Academy.  I am eager to bring my dedication to learning and social growth to the students and teachers at Foose.  I have been planning with your dedicated staff to ensure we have a safe, enriching, and enjoyable school year for all of our students.

I look forward to collaborating with you to provide additional enrichment activities and events through the PTA and community partnerships.  Please look for additional communication throughout the year on our website, in the mail, and through the Global Call system. I look forward to meeting you this fall!
