    Hello Ladd Acres Families,

    It is with a great deal of mixed emotions that I write to you today to let you know that I will be leaving Ladd Acres Elementary School at the end of this school year to become the new Executive Director of Schools in the Hillsboro School District’s Office for School Performance. In my new role, I will have oversight responsibilities for many elementary schools.

    It is never easy to leave a school community and Ladd Acres has been a very special place for me. It has been my privilege and honor to serve as your principal. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to lead our amazing school, while getting to know all of our Astros and our Astro families. We have accomplished great things together over the past six years, and the staff, students, and families have become like a second family to me. Even though this job represents an opportunity for me to serve our students in a new capacity, please know how much I will miss you all. As an educator for over 28 years, I am called to serve our students, staff, and community. Taking on this new role for the Hillsboro School District is a great honor and I know that the work I will do at district office will trickle back to Ladd Acres in a positive manner, for sure.  

    The District’s chief Human Resources officer, Kona Lew-Williams, will be meeting with staff and families on Thursday, February 21, to gather feedback on the qualities you’d like to see in your next principal prior to the posting and hiring process. The staff meeting will take place in the afternoon, and the parent meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. in our school library.

    Thank you so much for welcoming me, embracing me, and allowing me to learn and grow with you and your students. These past six years have been amazingly wonderful and I will always cherish my Astro years. I will miss you all and look forward to hearing about and seeing all of the continued hard work from our students, staff and community!

    With warm regards always,

    Francesca Sinapi
    Principal

    Hola familias de Ladd Acres:

    Es con sentimientos encontrados que les escribo hoy para dejarles saber que me voy de la Escuela Primaria Ladd Acres al final de este año escolar para ser la nueva directora ejecutiva de las escuelas en la Oficina para el Desempeño Escolar del Distrito Escolar de Hillsboro. En mi nuevo rol, tendré responsabilidades de supervisión sobre muchas escuelas primarias.

    Nunca es fácil dejar una comunidad escolar y Ladd Acres ha sido un lugar muy especial para mí. Ha sido un privilegio y un honor servir como su directora. Me siento bendecida por haber tenido la oportunidad de liderar nuestra increíble escuela y conocer a todos nuestros estudiantes y familias Astros. Hemos logrado cosas grandiosas juntos en los últimos seis años, y el personal, los estudiantes y las familias se han convertido en una segunda familia para mí. Aunque este trabajo representa una oportunidad para que yo proporcione servicio a nuestros estudiantes en una nueva capacidad, por favor, sepan cuánto los extrañaré a todos. Como educadora por más de 28 años, tengo la responsabilidad de servir a nuestros estudiantes, personal y comunidad. Asumir este nuevo rol en el Distrito Escolar de Hillsboro es un gran honor y sé que el trabajo que haré en la oficina del distrito tendrá un efecto positivo de alguna manera en Ladd Acres, sin duda.  

    La directora ejecutiva de recursos humanos del Distrito, Kona Lew-Williams, se reunirá con el personal y las familias el jueves, 21 de febrero, para obtener comentarios sobre las cualidades que le gustaría que su próximo director tenga antes del proceso de la publicación y contratación. La reunión con el personal se llevará a cabo en la tarde y la reunión con los padres se llevará a cabo a las 6:30 p.m. en la biblioteca de nuestra escuela.

    Muchas gracias por darme la bienvenida, aceptarme y permitirme aprender y crecer con ustedes y con sus estudiantes. Estos últimos seis años han sido increíblemente maravillosos y siempre valoraré mis años en Ladd Acres. ¡Los extrañaré a todos y espero ver y escuchar acerca de todo el trabajo arduo y continuo de nuestros estudiantes, personal y comunidad!

    Con un cordial saludo,

    Francesca Sinapi
    Directora

    The safety of our students is a top priority. Please refrain from bringing your dogs to dismissal and arrival areas. Students are often inclined to want to pet or quickly approach dogs which can result in injury. Thank you for understanding. It is appreciated.
