Great Neck Public Schools
Mrs. Michelle Bell
Welcome to the Parkville School! It is with great excitement that I join the Parkville Family as your new principal! I am deeply honored to continue to work within the Great Neck School District with its long history and sustained culture of academic excellence. I am committed to working in a partnership with Parkville School’s families, faculty, and staff to nurture the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development of each of our students.
As you walk through the halls, and visit classrooms, it becomes evident that the faculty and staff are the backbone of the Parkville School. I can assure you that we will work collaboratively to continue to provide a safe, caring environment that fosters a sense of security and love of learning. Parkville families are lucky to have such a talented, dedicated, kind, passionate, and caring group of professionals devoted to your children. I thank them for their tireless efforts for a wonderful school year!
Our goal, Parkville School’s mission, is to help our students become independent, confident, lifelong learners as well as socially responsible and productive citizens. Preschool and kindergarten are the foundation, and just the beginning of an exciting educational journey where, at Parkville School, students will develop self-confidence, take risks, engage in exploration and discovery, and experience a balance of academic rigor and play.
On a personal note, my husband and I are the proud parents of Julie, who is five and will be starting kindergarten in September, Charlotte, who is four and starting preschool, and Connor, who is 20 months old and keeps us on our toes! They are our pride and joy and make me smile every single day. Rest assured your children are in good hands as I will always keep their best interests in mind – just as I would for my own three children.
As I continue to encourage families to be partners in the educational process, my door will always be open. Developing trusting relationships, and working as a team, is key in fostering student success.
Parkville School is fortunate to have a dynamic and involved Parent Teacher Organization. I am looking forward to membership continuing to grow as the Parkville PTO is a non-profit organization composed of parents and staff members who strive together to create an optimum learning environment.
I am passionate, energetic, and love what I do! I am devoted to your children and will continue to advocate for, nurture, and wholeheartedly champion each one of them! I look forward to meeting the wonderful students and families of Parkville School!
Michelle Bell, Principal
