It is such a pleasure to start year two as principal of Raymond S. Kellis High School. As a reminder of my world, I have two boys who are 9 and 13 that continue to challenge me in every way. They are a continual reminder and driving force for me to provide the best possible learning environment. Now more than ever, it is imperative that all our children have an opportunity to be successful in an ever-changing world.  My focus is that Raymond S. Kellis High School will continue to rise to those challenges and thrive so much so that it is an educational experience that is sought out by families throughout the state.  For me, it starts with the 3 C’s: Connections, Communication, and Consistency.  For any educational environment to be successful administrators, teachers, parents, students, classified staff, and community members all need to build connections.  We need a culture where we are invested in each other and show that we truly care and are there to support all.   Communication is crucial in providing clarity in purpose and vision. We must be on the same page so that RSK students will leave our school and be able to adapt and succeed in all that they are faced with in the real world.  Finally, consistency in our messaging, procedures and performance must occur daily to allow us to achieve our goals for our students. Again, I am honored to be here and Cougar Pride… Is it in you?  Own it!! Have a wonderful day!
