Message from the Principal

Dear Families,

On behalf of our staff at Sgt. William H. Carney Academy, I am happy to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year! I am energized and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our children.  We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:


1)     Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

2)     Complete all homework assignments given by teachers

3)     Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

4)     Shares school experience with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

5)     Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

6)     Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college or career

7)     Sign and return weekly evaluations


The wonderful Carney staff and I feel privileged to be part of the school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.
