Principal's Message

Dear Cleveland Elementary Parents, Students and Families:

I am truly honored to be the acting principal of Cleveland Elementary School! This is my third year in the Allentown School District and my 10th year in urban public education. At Cleveland Elementary, we believe in the importance of parents, teachers, and community members working together to help our students reach their highest potential. As a community school, we provide a wide variety of partnerships, programs, and services for our students and families. We are very proud to be able to say that over 47% of the student body attend at least one of our many afterschool programs! In addition, last year we had over a 330% growth in family and community engagement from the prior year! Cleveland Elementary School continues to nurture the unique talents and abilities of each of our students. Our students are engaged in instruction and experiences that result in a love for learning, problem solving, and working collaboratively with one another. I look forward to building and continuing to build positive relationships with our students, families, and the school community!
