Dear Students, Families, Teachers, and Staff,
Welcome back to another school year at Excelsior Artz Preparatory School! I hope your summer was restful and you enjoyed good health. My name is Janet Galati and I am honored to be the principal of such an awesome school. As a school leader, my main goal has always been to educate each child’s mind, body, and spirit. However, in the times in which we live, my second big goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy. With God’s help, we will achieve both goals this school year.
New beginnings are exciting! Preschoolers who have never been in a classroom are both nervous and thrilled, students who are coming from another school are anxious to meet new teachers and children, and returning students can’t wait to see their friends and say hi to their “old” teachers. The halls will once again be buzzing with laughter and chatter.
Last year, with so many of our students on Zoom, the building felt different. A school without many children in it seems unnatural. This is why I am so happy to see so many eager and happy faces greeting us in the morning. As we venture forth into this new school year remember the words of a famous author, T.S. Elliot: “Every morning is a fresh beginning”. Each day as you walk through our front doors, remember those words. Only you have the power to make each day count. Make good decisions, study hard, and do your very best. If one day isn’t good, remember, it does not define you. Simply try again the next day to make it better. May God bless you always and keep you safe in His arms. Shine on, my friend, and blessings for a great 2021-22 school year.
