Welcome to Our School

Susan Blankenship Principal

Waverly Belmont Families,

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year!  I hope you had a wonderful, restful summer.  We have been very busy at Waverly Belmont over the past two months preparing for your children.  Our teachers have decorated classrooms, our leadership team has planned for the year, the class rosters were created, supplies were ordered, and the PTO board discussed ways to support the school and created an amazing calendar of events. Every summer, it amazes me to see the work needed to successfully begin a new school year!

As most of you know, this is my first year as principal at Waverly Belmont Elementary School.  I began my career with Metro Nashville Public Schools in 2000.  I have served the Nashville community as a teacher, Title I coordinator, instructional coach, dean, and, mostly recently, I completed my third year as principal at Sylvan Park Paideia Design Center.  I am honored to now serve the children of Waverly Belmont, and I look forward to building relationships with you, the faculty/staff, and the community.

You have already welcomed me warmly, and I love the enthusiasm that surrounds this school community.  It’s contagious!  I invite you to actively partner with us to ensure success for every child.  

Let’s work together to provide another year of UNWAVERING EXCELLENCE at Waverly Belmont Elementary School!
