Dear Green Gables Families,
It is with great pleasure, excitement, and optimism that I welcome you to the 2021-22 school year. I am thrilled to serve all of you as your principal for the 6th year at Green Gables Elementary (23 years total in Jeffco).  

As we plan for a return to school, our focus will  be to ensure that: 
Every student, every day feels connected, every student, every day feels safe, and every student, every day feels challenged by new learning experiences. Our Green Gables School Mission is for everyone to have the opportunity to lead, learn, and grow...TOGETHER!  Our students will also continue to learn habits of character to become effective learners, ethical people, and contributors to a better world. 

#BetterTogether is Jeffco’s theme this year and this will be woven throughout our school year as we recover from a global pandemic and continue to work in partnership to serve our amazing students.  I am excited for this theme and believe that we are better together!

As our staff returned last week, we kicked off the theme of “Better Together” and explored important concepts from a book by Jon Gordan and Kate Leavell, titled Stick Together.  They  include the power of:  belief, ownership, love, consistency, inclusion, connection, and hope. These are powerful concepts to strive for. Leading, learning and growing together Involves celebrating successes, persevering through challenges, and overcoming obstacles. 

This year, together, we will continue to build strong foundational skills for our students while working towards transforming the student learning experience as connected to Jeffco Generations.

I look forward to an exciting school year and value your partnership in the work of serving our students. 

With Gratitude, 
Suanne Hawley, Principal
