Greetings Parent or Guardian:
My Name is Marcus C. Baker Sr., and it is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction as the newly appointed Principal of Bryant Elementary School. For the past fifteen years I have worked to improve the quality of education for students of the inner city. My experience in leadership spans grade levels K-12 with a concentration in Curriculum and Instruction. It is my honor to serve you and your children as an educational leader. Together we will work diligently to ensure that all students learn at their maximum level of potential. I truly believe that every student has the ability to be successful. It is the role of educators to develop avenues that will lead to that success.
As Principal, my door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to visit the building or call to discuss any concerns or ideas that will help to ensure a great year. I am excited about the start of this school year and I can’t wait to meet you.
Marcus C. Baker Sr.

Today, we celebrate the efforts of not one, but all our students here at Bryant School; students whose unselfish efforts raised nearly $1000 dollars for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Chicago. Presented in this flipagram is Mr. Clark’s second grade class. They raised the most money and received an Olive Garden Pasta lunch as a result.
"Difficulty, my brethren, is the nurse of greatness - a harsh nurse, who roughly rocks her foster - children into strength and athletic proportion."
