Letter from the PrincipalLetter from the Principal

Susan SquareWelcome to Robert Frost Elementary School!  I begin this new journey as principal with anticipation, and I am eager to meet all of the students and families of the Robert Frost School community in the weeks and months ahead.

Prior to joining Robert Frost Elementary School, I have most recently served as Assistant Principal for Teaching and Learning, English Department Chair, ELL/Reading, English teacher and instructional coach at Maine Township High School District 207 in Park Ridge. In my earlier years, I worked as an elementary and middle school ELL and Reading teacher in North Carolina Public Schools as well as the French International School of Chicago. I am thrilled to be back working with young learners as they embark on their important individual learning paths.

Our district vision is “Preparing Students to be Successful for Life.” Robert Frost Elementary School will continue to embrace this vision by diligently striving to meet the social, emotional, and academic needs of every child, every day. Our goal is to immerse students in authentic learning experiences that allow them to practice and grow in communication, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. At Frost we have a dedicated faculty and staff who care deeply about your child’s learning and who create warm and nurturing classroom environments where students can truly grow and blossom into lifelong learners.

On a personal note, my husband Dave and I are proud parents of four children in various stages of life and learning. As both an educator and mother, I understand the positive benefits of parents being engaged in their child’s education. By working together, we can nurture each child and build positive learning outcomes by connecting and sharing ideas. Throughout the year, I will be sharing ideas and opportunities on how you can become more positively involved in your child’s experience at Frost. As we build upon our students’ strengths and diversity we will have many opportunities to celebrate our successes as “Frost Family”.

It is a privilege to serve the Robert Frost community as principal and I look forward to collaborating to meet the needs of all our students. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions at (847) 593-4378 or via email at [email protected].

Sincerely,

Susan Savage
Principal
