Farewell Letter from Principal Park

Farewell Letter from Principal Park June 4, 2015
Dear Barnard Community,
As we complete another successful year, I want to especially congratulate the promotion of our first group of full Immersion students as well as the 5th grade FLES, and 6th grade students to PB Middle School.
As I reflect back on our growth over the past 7 years, I am deeply grateful to our teachers, staff, parents, and most of all, our fabulous students for their efforts and dedication to this school.
As Barnard program continues to thrive and experience success, I have made a very difficult decision that it is now the right time for me to make a transition in my professional life. So it is with very mixed emotions that I announce my departure from Barnard as I have accepted a position as an administrator for the Poway Unified School District to jumpstart innovative programs there.
My decision to leave Barnard has been agonizingly difficult as I have built many solid relationships here. With that said, please rest assure that our Area Superintendent Kimie Lochtefeld and Human Resources Department will identify strong principal candidates and conduct interviews immediately to have a new principal in place before the start of the new school year. Information will be coming shortly to engage staff and parents on setting the criteria for the next principal. I will assist in the transition to support the new principal so that he/she understands the intricacies involved in running our program. I also plan on continuing to support our External Barnard Foundation.
From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you all for making these past 7 years the most enriching experiences of my career. Thank you for being on this journey with me and I look forward to hearing about great things this school will continue to do in the future.

Deepest Gratitude,
Edward “Eddie” Park
