Greetings all,

I am very enthusiastic about the 2016-2017 school year! As I reflect upon my nine years as principal of M. Agnes Jones Elementary, I am happy with the progress our students are making but know they can do more, say more, and demonstrate higher levels of greatness in order to be prepared to make a difference in the world! I want to ensure our students, parents, partners and the community that the expectations are high for our MAJ students, yet they will always have the support of the administration, faculty/staff to rise to them. I personally invite you to come into our school and become a vital part of the journey in educating, empowering and elevating our boys and girls!

Each year, we look to refresh, renew and innovate our academic and social emotional supports for students. We are excited to form a partnership with Truly Living Well, an urban farm located right in our backyard, as we continue working on our Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math (S.T.E.A.M.) initiative, “We are the World: Conquering Hunger Through Sustainability”. Stay tuned to our MAJ gardens, hydroponics/aquaponics systems and chicken coop, (Yes! I stated, chicken coop) as we transform our school into a 21st century S.T.E.A.M. school devoted to bringing about change in OUR community through real-world problem/ project-based learning. Ramsey (our life-size, interactive, robot mascot) will continue to represent the MAJ Ram’s family as we become further entrenched in our S.T.E.A.M. efforts!

Once again, we welcome you with open hands, open hearts and open doors as we move OUR students to higher levels of GREATNESS.

Forever Committed,

Margul Retha Woolfolk
