Principal's Corner


August 2016

Dear Whiteville Primary Families,

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” –Harriet Tubman. 

    On behalf of the Whiteville Primary School family, it is truly a joy and an honor to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year!  As I begin my first year as principal at WPS, I will work diligently with our children, community, staff, and families to provide exceptional experiences for all children. Our children deserve the very best education!

    We desire the best for every child, and we look forward to partnering with you to help our children be their best.  Success isn’t accidental.  It is the result of a focused team effort, and everyone has a part to play if we are to achieve our goals and reach our potential.  Students . . . come to school expecting to learn and willing to work hard. Our staff will provide the quality instruction that you deserve and that your parents expect.  Parents . . . encourage your children often and have regular conversations with them about school and their work.  Parental involvement shows children that school is important and that you are committed to their success.  I encourage you to volunteer your time and abilities, visit often, and communicate regularly with your child’s teacher.  Together, we can accomplish great things! 

    In closing, please enjoy the remaining days of summer. I look forward to welcoming our children back to school on Monday, August 29, 2016(full day).  I look forward to seeing many of you at Open House/Meet the Teacher on Thursday , August 25, 2016 from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m.  Please frequently check the WPS website throughout the year for up-to-date information and events.

 Kind Regards,

Kimberly L. Ward
