Dear Shorewood School Families,

The Shorewood Hills Elementary School staff and I would like to extend a warm
welcome to all families for the 2018-2019 school year! I am excited about connecting
with each of you. If you are new to our school, I invite you to stop by and chat. If you are
a returning family, I hope you will come and see me as well so that I can hear about
your summer! We value our families, and we are always looking for ways to involve and
engage you in your child’s learning experience. We are all excited to partner with you to
support our children and the Shorewood School Community.

Our “Little United Nations” is a place of learning, compassion and community – and we
are so pleased to have you with us! Together we will continue to take our school to new
levels of excellence. At Shorewood School, we have an equity-focused culture, where
every member of our community has a voice in the decision making process. In order to
achieve this goal, we actively encourage and support our families in getting to know one
another and becoming advocates for all children. Our new Family and Community
Engagement Center provides a space for us to do this work together. Please come visit
the center and see what it has to offer!

Our equity culture is rooted in and thrives upon our commitment to the idea that every
child is an asset to our school community. We live that value by engaging in culturally
responsive teaching practices. We work to create a sense of belonging for all kids by
getting to know them as individuals, and by partnering with them in their learning. We
listen to them, support them, and push them to achieve at high levels in a loving, safe,
and inclusive classroom environment. Students of all races, abilities, genders, linguistic,
ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds are expected to grow and pushed to excel.

We believe that a culturally responsive classroom is one that is caring, demonstrates
high expectations for each student, pushes each child to achieve excellence, and
stretches students beyond their comfort zones. This is our mission and passion at
Shorewood School – and we hope you will join us in achieving great things for our


Principal Ebbe
