Dear Wolf Canyon Elementary Families,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year. My name is Mathew Shy and I am extremely excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Wolf Canyon. Wolf Canyon enjoys a rich history of academic and cultural excellence, and I’m so happy to be part of its future.
As I make this transition to Wolf Canyon, I’m aware of the anticipation and eagerness that accompanies new leadership in any organization. I know change can provoke both excitement and anxiety. It’s my goal to spend the first several months learning about our school and all of the moving parts that make it flourish.
I will be making extended visits to each classroom to introduce myself and find out what makes each child so special. Additionally, I will be taking the time to hold meaningful sessions with each staff member to understand their interests and how I can best support their work with our children. In that same spirit, I would like to get to know every parent. Besides meeting you at drop off and pick up, I look forward to meeting you all at future coffee chats, PTA events, School Site Council meetings, English Learner Advisory Committee meetings, and other amazing activities and events on campus!
Once again, I am honored to serve as the instructional leader of Wolf Canyon. I look forward to meeting each of you.
We have a great year ahead of us!
Our office opens on Thursday, July 12. Office hours are from 8:00-4:00pm. Please feel free to call or stop by if you have any questions.
Class lists will be posted on the wall ball courts (playground) on Friday, July 20th @ 6:00 p.m. Please join us from 6:00 – 7:00pm for the annual “Meet the Teacher” event.
