Dear Shepherd Glen Families,
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the 2020-2021 School Year. It is with great pride and honor that I introduce myself, Barbara Perrotti, as the new Shepherd Glen Elementary School Principal. As you may know, I was the grade 7 Assistant Principal for Hamden Middle School for the past seven years and prior to this I spent my career at the elementary level serving as a fourth and fifth grade teacher and Literacy Specialist. I am so happy to be back where my roots are at the elementary level. In addition, I am a native of Hamden and Hamden Public Schools as well as my three children. There is no better place to educate your children than in our hometown of Hamden.
I extend this welcome to all of the current and new Shepherd Glen families. This year I know we are faced with some challenges at the onset of the school year and we are prepared to face them and work together with our district to ensure a quality and safe education for ALL students. Our approach to the school year will be collaborative and we will forge ahead in order to create opportunities for our students to grow socially and emotionally and succeed.
As I look ahead on the upcoming year I am filled with excitement, anticipation and great hope that our students will accomplish, achieve and celebrate excellence at Shepherd Glen with the support of our exemplary staff and families. I welcome you to review our website daily to keep abreast of the happenings at Shepherd Glen and know your child/ren’s safety and learning is always at the forefront as their principal.
I believe the 2020-2021 school year is going to be a year to remember! We are going to put student safety, well being and success first and continue to make great strides in our building. I look forward to a strong parent-school partnership.
