Principal's Message

On behalf of all the staff members, I would like to welcome everyone to Goldie Maple Academy (GMA)!!  It is a privilege to serve as principal of GMA.  Our school has an outstanding reputation, and I am proud to be part of such a wonderful program.  GMA's goal is to show the community we are  filled with enthusiastic students willing to learn, supportive parents/guardians interested in their children's education, and a dedicated professional staff committed to providing the students with a quality education. 
 
I would like to encourage each parent/guardian to stay active in your child's education.  I certainly realize that many of you lead busy lives, and it is often difficult to volunteer at school.  However, taking just a few minutes in the evening to read to your child, talk with your child about school, or simply see that your child is organized for the next school day can have great benefits. 

As we begin the school year, there are a few issues that I would like to bring to your attention. Because of the new UFT contract, we had to change our school day. The new school hours for all students will be 8:00am - 2:20pm everyday. In addition, our first opportunity for parents to meet their children's teachers will be September 18th. More information pertaining to that event will be forthcoming.

Enjoy the 2014-2015 school year and all the excitement it will bring!  Please feel free to contact any of us at GMA if you would like more information about our school.
 
Sincerely,
Mrs. Logan-Smith
Principal
