Principal's Message
                                         

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am to open our school for our wonderful children! We know that things will be different as we open this year, but we also know that our Greenwood Mill teachers and staff have been working exceptionally hard to ensure that we provide the best possible days for our learners. We are preparing to meet their social and emotional learning needs as well their academics. Whether they are attending class virtually or in the hybrid model, our teachers are continually being innovative and developing new ways to reach out students. I am so proud of what they have accomplished. I ask that we all remain patient and kind as we navigate these uncharted waters. Together we can do anything.

Mrs. Muldowney
