As the principal of Devinny, I'd like to welcome you to our community. Each new year brings opportunities for academic growth and growth in all areas of development. Although children must be knowledgeable when they graduate, they must also be healthy, engaged, responsible, and caring people.
I'm grateful you’re here at Devinny and we’re excited to partner with you and your child. As a Leader in Me School, we believe that every member of your family has greatness and we can’t wait to learn and grow from you!
Leader in Me (LiM) is an evidence-based, comprehensive school improvement model—developed in partnership with educators and FranklinCovey—that empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in a global community.
Our school has chosen to operate through a uniquely different lens.  Leader in Me is about empowering your child to reach their full potential while ultimately finding their voice. As a school, the staff in this building have made five core commitments to your child. We call these our Core Paradigms. In these paradigms, you will find the belief and way we view all students. 

At Devinny we see that:
     Everyone is a leader.
     Everyone has genius.
     Change starts with me.
     We empower students to lead their own learning.
     Educators and families partner to develop the whole person.


Not only do these paradigms apply to your student, they apply to all of us!  Leader in Me provides our school with the vision and language to lead the school in a way that addresses all areas of development.  As each child discovers and develops their unique gifts and talents, they are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education, and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be the best. We hope your school enjoys sharing these new opportunities. Together, we will see each child grow throughout the year.
I invite families to become a part of the Devinny community in any way you are able. Join and be involved with our PTA, come to accountability meetings, and volunteer to help in classrooms, the library, or as a Watch Dog. There will be a great benefit to our students when we are all active in the community for their benefit! I look forward to working with and getting to know the families in our Devinny community and continuing the great work Devinny has been known for over the years!
