Principal Message

Aug. 2, 2023

Dear SoNo School Community,

I am thrilled and honored to introduce myself as the newly appointed principal of SoNo School. It is with great excitement that I officially join this vibrant community, and I am looking forward to being a part of the school's opening in just a few short weeks.

Having been an educator for over 16 years, I have witnessed the transformative power of education and the positive impact it can have on students' lives. As principal, my primary focus will be to create a nurturing and inclusive learning environment that fosters academic excellence, social-emotional growth, and a strong sense of community.

I believe in the power of collaboration and open communication between all stakeholders - students, parents, guardians, teachers, and staff. Together, we can build a strong foundation for success and provide our students with the tools they need to thrive academically and socially.

As we embark on this exciting journey together, I am committed to ensuring that every student's unique needs are met, and their voices are heard. Our school's success will be measured not just by academic achievements but also by the joy and enthusiasm our students have for learning.

I am eager to get to know each of you, to learn from your experiences, and to work together to shape a school that we can all be proud of. Please feel free to reach out to me with any ideas, suggestions, or concerns you may have.

Thank you and I look forward to working together to create an exceptional educational experience for our students.

With warm regards,

Amaris Melendez

Principal, South Norwalk Neighborhood School
