Principal's Corner

January 2018

I am very excited to welcome you to Appleby’s new website! Please check back often as we will be updating the website with news and photos which will help us to better connect with our parents and community.

It’s hard to believe we are nearing the halfway mark for the 2017-2018 school year! I am thrilled and honored to be part of the Appleby family once again. I have had the pleasure of visiting all of our classrooms on numerous occasions to observe the learning process first hand. I can honestly say we are very lucky to have a professional staff that believes in the power of education and works hard to help students develop as independent thinkers, problem solvers, effective communicators and lifelong learners with personal responsibility and good moral character.

Each day, we encourage our students to challenge themselves to meet the highest expectations in all facets of their education--academically, socio-emotionally, creatively and physically. At Appleby, we have the very important job of bridging our students from their very first school experiences at Schoenly to their evolution into adolescence at Memorial--a labor of love we take very seriously! In cooperation with our dedicated staff, parents and students we encourage our children to reach their unique potential and empower them to become lifelong learners.

We look forward to 2018 and many more opportunities to make new discoveries and enjoy great adventures in learning!

Nancy Torchiano, Principal
