Greetings MPTS Families,
Welcome to Myers Park Traditional School! We are one of the oldest schools in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools – Myers Park Traditional was first built in 1928 and the most recent addition and renovation was completed in 2003.
We are a Leadership/Traditional magnet school. This means all of our students participate in the magnet program, which is focused on leadership and using the Leader in Me model. We instill leadership qualities in our students using the seven habits of highly effective people developed by Stephen R. Covey. A parent guide to the program can be found on our website and accessed here.
At our school, we are building each year on a long-standing tradition of excellence and academic success; setting higher goals for ourselves and our students. Recognition of our students is important. We hold various ceremonies that celebrate and reward our students’ academic and leadership success, including, quarterly awards ceremonies, monthly Leader of the Month breakfasts, as well as classroom Leaders of the Week. In the spring, we will also host our yearly Leadership Day, which our Leader in Me Lighthouse Committee coordinates.
I invite you to participate in our school community, and volunteers are always welcome (and appreciated). Please remember to register as a CMS volunteer each school year, and select Myers Park Traditional as a school site. In addition, each time you come to the school please remember to bring your government-issued photo ID and sign in via Lobby Guard in the main office.
Finally, I would like to tell you a little bit about me. I began my career in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in 2005 at Windsor Park Elementary where I served as a First Grade teacher and as an Academic Facilitator. Throughout that time, I received my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Supervision from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte and my administrative license from Gardner Webb University. I then served as an Assistant Principal at Eastway Middle School from 2015-2018. In 2018, I became the Assistant Principal at Selwyn Elementary and recently, I served as an Interim Principal at Montclaire Elementary from January 2021 to June 2021. On a personal note, I have been married to my husband for four years and we have two amazing little boys. Becoming a parent has made me even more passionate about the work I do.
As a principal, a parent, and a person, I am committed to providing the best education possible to each of our students and I believe that every child can be a leader. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. I can be reached at (980) 343-5522 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to working with you to ensure that Myers Park Traditional continues to offer a challenging, effective educational experience in a safe, happy atmosphere. Thank you for choosing CMS and MPTS!
