Welcome back to school! I am so excited to be starting another year at Greenville! For those of you who are new to the school, let me take a quick minute to introduce myself. My name is Stephanie Adams, and I have been a principal in this school district for the past 10 years, and I LOVE my job! This is my second year at Greenville. I grew up in the Rose Park area of Salt Lake City and moved to Logan for school where I met my husband. My husband and I live on the south end of the valley and we have kids in elementary, middle and high school. We love taking time to enjoy the outdoors and playing board and card games as a family when we are indoors. We have 2 dogs, 2 turtles, and a fish who always naps floating upside down. (He’s done this for over a year now and always wakes up for feeding time.) When I am not working or hanging out with my family, you can find me in the mountains, on a long walk through the fields, or curled up with a good book. I am excited to see all of our students and families from last year and to get to know all of our new families who are joining us this year. If you ever need anything, please feel free to reach out.As we gear up for the start of a new school year please review the following checklist and documents attached to this email before back to school night. See you all soon!
