Dear Birches Family,
As a long-time educator, it is my privilege to serve as the Principal of Birches School. I look forward to working collaboratively with our experienced staff and community members to make this an awesome year for our students. The faculty and staff are dedicated professionals, committed to meeting students where they are and moving them forward academically, all while ensuring that our students feel safe enough to take academic risks, make mistakes and learn from them. Our goal at Birches is to ensure that each student has a strong foundation so that they are able to grow and reach their fullest potential.
I come to Washington Township having taught 22 years in ELA, and most recently as a Vice Principal and Curriculum Supervisor. I am a proud wife, mother of four, practice hot yoga, and row on a dragon boat competitively, and I hold teaching, supervisory, principal and school administrator certifications. Continuing the excellence of Birches Elementary School is of the utmost importance.
We are continually working to live out the Birches vision- to work in partnership with families and the community to empower all students to grow as problem solvers, digital learners, and well-rounded global citizens.
I am honored to be the principal of Birches School! Welcome to the 2023-24 school year. Together let's make it the best year yet!
My very best,
Mrs. Julie LaRubbio
Birches Elementary School
