Principal's Message

To the Martha Baldwin Family,

It is an honor to be the new principal of Martha Baldwin School. I am very excited to be a part of the Martha Baldwin community. This promises to be an outstanding school year and I look forward to meeting all of you. As principal, know that I am here to help all students achieve as much academic success as possible and want students to feel that Martha Baldwin has a safe and caring environment. Respect, Responsibility and Safety are top priorities. 


The academic tradition here at Martha Baldwin is truly top rate and the expectation is that it will continue to rise. It is crucial that your child attends school everyday and is on time. Regular and continued monitoring of your child's progress is also very important. Talk to your child on a daily basis about what they learned and did at school. If you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact your child's teacher(s). 

At Martha Baldwin we are committed to creating a safe and caring school that fosters Cougar pride in all of our students and families. We strive to have a rigorous and supportive school environment that supports learning for ALL students. We encourage strong lines of communication between all Martha Baldwin stakeholders.

We encourage all families to be active participants in their child's education. Attending as many events at school as possible, joining our wonderful PTA or volunteering in your child's classroom are just a few examples of ways this can be achieved. Our goal is to work together to make your child as successful as possible.

Here's to a wonderful 18-19 school year. Go Cougars!!

Mr. Chris Takeshita
