Letter from the Principal

Christie Lau Thumb

Dear Robert Frost Families, 

It is my pleasure to welcome you to a great year of learning together as a Robert Frost community. I am very excited for the 2021-2022 school year as your new principal and am thankful for the opportunity to serve our students, staff, and community as we partner together to prepare students to be successful for life.

When I think about what is necessary to be successful for life, a love of learning is the biggest component that comes to mind. At Robert Frost, we will focus on ensuring students have the opportunities to explore who they are as learners, build on their strengths and passions, and understand how great it can feel when overcoming a challenge and learning something new. We will support students’ social-emotional needs to help them develop the confidence, humility, creativity, and kindness needed to be successful. 

Years ago, as I was beginning my fourth year as a classroom teacher, a board member spoke about the “one chance” students get at the year before them and the responsibility we have as educators to ensure that the experience for our students is nothing short of inspiring. Since that day, it has been my personal mission to ensure that I create that experience for all students and that the “one chance” at this grade, year, and time in their lives is something they will remember forever.  

As we embark on this journey, after such an unprecedented year last year, it is so important that we collaborate as a school community to ensure that students are feeling supported in these endeavors both at home and at school. My door is always open, and if you ever have any questions or suggestions about how we can do this best, I would love to hear from you. We know there may be worries or questions after last year, but please be assured that the Robert Frost staff is ready and excited to meet students and families where they are and push them to achieve at levels they never knew possible.  

Wishing you well,

Christie Lau 
Principal, Robert Frost Elementary
