Principal's Welcome

cat

This is Dana’s sixth year as Principal at Blanchard Memorial School.  He has been honored to serve the students, families, and staff that create our warm and welcoming school community.

Dana believes the most important skill children learn in elementary school is how to cultivate positive relationships with others. He believes that knowledge is acquired by getting to know the perspectives, ideas, and interests of other people. Through connections and relationships within our community, we develop and refine our own beliefs. Dana merits open and transparent communication, inclusive decision-making, and collegiality. He strives to meet each individual respectfully and with curiosity. 

As a lifelong learner, Dana is passionate about advocating for equity and equality. Recognizing that we are all works-in-progress, our shared learning at Blanchard is ongoing. We must support one another and take care of ourselves. The safety and well being of students, staff, and families is our priority. 

When Dana is not walking the halls and classrooms of Blanchard he can be found playing four square at recess, playing guitar at Community Meeting or roaming in the woods with teachers and students.

As we continue to cultivate culture and climate, we invite you to use and follow the hashtag: #commUNITY, so that we can share all the good things happening at Blanchard!
