Principal's Message

Welcome Verrado Heritage Families!

    I believe our children belong to the most promising generation in the history of the world. Verrado Heritage promotes an atmosphere of leadership and inspires greatness in every child. We provide opportunities for students to discover their own strengths, talents and gifts through a program called The Leader In Me. 

   Our school colors of navy blue and lime green were chosen with great thought and meaning. The navy blue represents the sky and we will teach our children to think beyond what they can imagine and to reach for the stars. The lime green is not only a bright and uplifting color, but it represents the color of grass. We will remember the lessons learned from the grassroots of our nation and begin to build each child’s own legacy in this world. 

     Our mascot was chosen with intent and purpose. I asked…what would happen if every one of us started to look for ways to make a difference in our immediate circles: our families, our school, our community? What if we started to take a closer look at our strengths and then encouraged to use them to better ourselves and the world around us? And what if we did this everyday? I’m proud to introduce the Home of the Everyday HERO where our students are inspired to be a leaders, influence others and feel empowered to make a difference.

    I have been a part of the Verrado community for over eight years and have grown to love the families and the community. You cannot imagine how it both thrills and humbles me to be your child’s principal and lead us on this incredible journey of excellence in the Litchfield Elementary School District.

POWER Up Everyone!
