  • Principal Chen Welcome letter for the 2023-2024 school year 

    Dear Mendell Families,


    I hope this letter finds you well and enjoying the remaining days of summer.  As the new principal, I am honored to have this opportunity to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year.  


    Since late June, I have had the privilege of immersing myself in the vibrant culture and values of the Mendell community. I have met with dedicated staff members, engaged with enthusiastic students, and had meaningful conversations with parents and caregivers. Through these interactions, I have gained a deep appreciation for the unique strengths and aspirations that define our school.


    As we begin this new academic journey, I want to share the priorities that will guide us throughout the year. First and foremost, the safety and well-being of our students will be a top priority. We are committed to maintaining a safe and nurturing learning environment where all students can thrive.  


    Equally important is our dedication to fostering a strong sense of belonging and community. We believe that a thriving school is one where everyone feels valued and accepted for who they are. To achieve this, we will organize various events and activities that encourage collaboration, empathy, and friendship among students, families, and staff.


    Our third priority revolves around enhancing students' learning outcomes. We recognize that each child's educational journey is unique, and we are committed to providing diverse and engaging learning experiences that cater to individual strengths and needs and empower your children to achieve their fullest potential.


    I am thrilled to lead the Mendell School in the pursuit of these goals and to partner with you in creating a supportive and enriching environment for our students. Your involvement and feedback are invaluable to us, and I encourage you to actively engage with the school throughout the year.


    Thank you for entrusting us with your children's education. I am excited about the journey that lies ahead and the positive impact we will make together. Let's make this school year one of growth, discovery, and achievement for every student at Mendell Elementary School. 


    Warm regards,




    Principal | Mendell Elementary School
