Dear APM/ECC Parents/Guardians and Scholars,

It is with great honor and pride that I write this letter of introduction to you as your Acting Principal. I’m excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to our school. My 19 years as a Vice Principal in the Hillside Public Schools, has prepared me to assume this leadership role.

I believe that student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationship we build within our community and this is MOST important now more than ever. Although this year looks different than any other year, we are dedicated to providing our scholars a memorable, interactive, engaging distance learning experience.

We will also focus on Social Emotional Learning Initiatives while ensuring our scholars master grade level appropriate standards through the implementation of rigorous curriculum with co-curricular experiences that ensure our scholars are ready for the next educational chapter of their lives.

As your Principal, it is important to me that we focus on all the positives that we can take from this experience as role models in our scholars lives. We will display a positive attitude towards distance learning each and every day. I encourage you to do the same at home.

I look forward to sharing my vision and goals for this school year virtually and hopefully in person.

Let’s work together as a team to help our scholars at APM/ECC meet their goals and have a successful school year.


Mrs. Victoria Palmer-Gilliard, Acting Principal
