Dear Putnam Ave Community,

My name is Phanenca Babio-James and I am delighted to be your Interim Head of School during this period of adjustment. I know that transitions can be hard, especially in the midst of a pandemic. But I am confident that if we work together as a school community, we will make it to the other side even stronger. As you approach your 10 year anniversary as a school, it is important that we find ways to celebrate this milestone. As you know the school community better than I do, I would love to hear some ideas for how to celebrate this special occasion. As your head of school, my role will be to listen to your concerns as a staff and community to provide you with the support you need.

As we begin this new school year with a lot of uncertainties, let's be mindful that we have the power to decide how the year turns out. We have the opportunity to rewrite our history and celebrate 10 successful years serving families and students.

My role as your head of school is to work collaboratively for the best interest of our students. With your help and support, we can approach the challenges ahead with confidence and intention and discover a world of possibilities, opening doors of opportunity for all of our students.

To our parents, guardians, and students: You have braved this transition with grace and perseverance. Thank you for entrusting us with your children. As we move forward, let us make a promise to ourselves and to each other to continue to persevere and set high expectations for ourselves and for our students.

I am honored to be your head of school and I look forward to meeting all of you. I welcome your suggestions and ideas as we move into the new school year in a few short weeks. 

With warm regards,
Phanenca Babio-James, PhD
Head of School
