Welcome letter from Mrs.Halliday

Hello SAM Parents and Students!


It is with great honor and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed vice principal.  I will always hold a place in my heart for the years I spent teaching Advanced Math and Enrichment Writing. As vice principal, however, I seek to effect change on a broader scale using my experience, creativity and enthusiasm. 

Along with the dedicated staff at SAM, I will continue to strengthen curriculum and ensure student success across grade levels.  To achieve this goal, I will hold high expectations for all students and teachers. My focus will be to provide students with challenging and engaging instruction tailored to each student’s needs and learning styles.  We will model and practice Catholic values daily. I am further looking to help teachers blend technology with the best of what they already do in the classroom. In addition, I will work with teachers on using summative and formative assessment data to inform and guide instruction. As your vice principal, my primary objective is to ensure a learning environment that is based on reverence, respect, and responsibility.

If you have any questions throughout the year, I will be on campus Tuesday through Thursday, and can be reached any time at .

May God’s peace and blessings be with you always,

Mrs. Vanessa Halliday
Vice Principal
