Hello Harborside Tigers!
I am Lisa Forehand and I am so excited and proud to serve the students, families, and community as Principal of Harborside Elementary. I have spent the last 26 years in education with 17 years being in the classroom teaching grades K-5 and loving every minute of making a difference in the classroom. As an administrator, I am excited to share my passion and vision as we work collectively to make our school the BEST school ever!
I am passionate about high quality, rigorous instruction where students can be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and collaborate within a class family and school family setting. I know that this is accomplished with myself and every adult on campus building solid relationships with each and every child. I am a firm believer in respecting and supporting all learners as well as having safe, nurturing classrooms where children can take risks and grow in to globally conscious and contributing leaders of tomorrow.
It all starts here--with all of us: Students, Parents, School. We look forward to an amazing partnership on your child's educational journey.
Dear Harborside Families,
My name is Kim Callado and I am your associate principal. I am very excited and ready to continue being an active member of the Harborside school community. I have been an educator for 25 years and my passion is the motivation to create strong relationships with students, parents, school staff, and community partners. I will continue my partnership with Principal Lisa Forehand in creating a safe and nurturing environment in which each individual student will feel proud and on a successful college and career pathway. I am looking forward to a year filled with many positive experiences, as well as working together to overcome any challenges that we may encounter. Let’s have a great 2019-2020 school year!!!
Our mission is to ensure that ALL Harborside students receive a rigorous, high quality instruction in a collaborative learning environment where there is an emphasis on academics as well as social/ emotional learning. We want to ensure that all students develop the confidence and necessary skills to be independent thinkers, effective communicators, and be socially conscious and contributing global citizens.
We believe that Harborside Elementary School provides a safe and rigorous learning environment where our children are encouraged to be critical thinkers, leaders, collaborators, culturally proficient, and biliterate.
We believe that every adult and every student will act with compassion, treat one another with respect, and model positive behaviors on a daily basis.
We believe that every child is capable of learning and adults and children will actively support the learning efforts of others.
