Principal's Welcome

Julie Frost
Greetings!

The students, staff, and administration of the William T. Machan School welcome you to our school.  Our ‘Home of the Mountain Lions ‘ has a history of being a neighborhood school that offers a variety of programs for students Pre-school through 8th grade. 

Our signature program is STEAM.  STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking. The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!

Student success is the goal of every staff member at Machan.  Our staff is devoted to utilizing research-based best practices to guide every student, every day to reach their full potential. Machan Staff work collaboratively to implement standards by designing skill-specific lessons and assessments to monitor student progress.   I ask for your support and participation in this effort by sending your child to school every day, encouraging her/him to read for pleasure every night, monitoring homework and progress, and asking your child to share what they learned at school each day.

We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering, joining our Parent Teacher Association, or attending and supporting our school events.  Educational research shows that one of the most important characteristics of an effective school is building a strong home-school relationship. Machan welcomes your involvement and seeks to create strong home-school relationships.
