Dear Lannoye Elementary Community, Parents and Students,
My name is Peggy Goddard and I am honored to be selected as your new principal! I welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year and hope you are settling into a healthy routine!
It is very evident that Lannoye’s success is the result of your continued partnership with school and district leaders and the many quality teachers and support staff who work here. You have my heartfelt gratitude! Having been in education for the past 13 years as a teacher, instructional coach, school improvement specialist, and principal, I know firsthand the amount of effort and commitment that goes into such a partnership so that we can provide students a safe and engaging place to learn.
Winston Churchill once said, “There is nothing wrong with change as long as it is in the right direction.” With that said, I want you to know that I intend to honor the history of Lannoye and will hold sacred the work of the many that have contributed to Lannoye’s positive reputation and exceptional performance. I am so excited to begin work toward realizing my dream of leading a school that is highly collaborative, progressive, and has the potential to serve as a model school for other districts.
My number one priority is to build relationships and to understand the current reality of Lannoye and its vision. You will find that I am down to earth, a great listener, and will work tirelessly as an advocate for students. I look forward to getting to know you and your child(ren).
Your Partner in Education,
