I take great pride and joy in welcoming you to the 2021-2022 school year. It is truly exciting to be returning this year and to be part of a community of great students, parents, and teachers! We are already excitedly preparing for the opening of school as the first day of school is approaching--Tuesday, August 3rd. This is going to be another amazing year at Brandywine Elementary School.
Brandywine Elementary School is a special place for kids filled with warm and friendly teachers, students, parents, and staff, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be your principal. I strongly believe in working collaboratively with all stakeholders in order to continue the success that our school has worked so hard to achieve over the years. Through this collaboration, I am sure we will keep moving our students and school forward.
BWE is very fortunate to have a fabulous PTO who plan and organize fun activities, events, and fundraisers. They take great care of us! This group is open, approachable, creative, dedicated, and fun. They would love to have you join them. They are steadfastly committed to working together toward the success of all the children at Brandywine.
My highest priority is ensuring the safety and well-being of all students and staff. We strive to create an environment where courtesy and kindness prevail and where there is respect for other people. Students at Brandywine Elementary work hard individually and as a classroom community to achieve an environment where every single child feels valued and believes they can be successful.
As parents and educators, we must form a strong partnership to ensure that all of our Brandywine Bulldogs receive an exceptional education. We look forward to welcoming you all back into our building this year! I encourage you to participate in school activities and special occasions, as well as volunteer in your child's classroom if your schedule allows. I look forward to getting to know you this school year and many school years to come. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by phone or email.
See you soon,
Mr. Austin Theobald
