Summer Update and Reminders for Families | June 15, 2022
Dear North Haven Families, I am writing today to share some news with all of you. After ten years of being part of our beautiful learning community I have decided to accept a principalship at Queen Elizabeth Elementary School to begin in 2022-23. I have made the decision to accept another role in the CBE because it is time for me to take steps to continue my professional growth as an educator. This was a difficult decision because in the time I have been a member of the learning community at North Haven, I have seen it change into a flourishing learning environment with a strong sense of community, care for each member, and a focus on quality teaching and learning, in which I have loved every minute of being involved. In 2012, I came to North Haven and subsequently taught many, many students. I had the pleasure of being a teacher, learning leader and assistant principal at North Haven. I later took on the responsibility of leading this learning community as principal, through community movement, programs opening and closing, and a global pandemic. As our city and community emerge from the pandemic and come together again in person, I can see that all of you are as committed to our students as I have been for these many years. Together we have created an environment that advances learning according to each individual's gifts and abilities. We have created a learning environment of which we can all be proud. I am leaving with the knowledge that North Haven is in good hands with our strong parent community, our dedicated staff, and of course, our incredible-in-so-many-ways-students. In the last few years I have received messages from some of those former students who look back at their time at North Haven with fond memories. I know that, like these incredible students, I will always do the same- as North Haven has been a home for me for almost half of my career. As you all look forward to a new school year at North Haven, I know that, once hired, you will welcome your new principal with open arms. Please visit the North Haven School website to complete a survey to provide your input regarding the programming and leadership attributes you value. Your input will be considered as part of the hiring process for a new principal and will be shared with the successful candidate to inform their entry plan to North Haven School. I will be spending the last couple of weeks of school enjoying every moment before I leave with my fond memories and the knowledge that North Haven will continue to be a shining example of how a community comes together in the interest of our children. Wishing you all the best, Lisa McConnellPrincipal
