Families of Forwood Elementary were told that our beloved principal, Mr. Michael McDermott, is being transferred to a different school starting this fall at the start of the new school year. We are asking you to make your voice heard by signing this petition to implore the superintendent, Lincoln Hohler, and the administration of Brandywine School District to reconsider this decision. 

Mr. McDermott has created a culture of inclusivity, trust, and respect at Forwood. He is equally adored by students, staff, and families. From his faithful support of the staff and PTA to his enthusiastic encouragement of the students, Mr. McDermott has endeared himself to Forwood Families. Taking him away will leave a gaping hole in the soul of our school. 

Forwood students, like students across the country, endured a tumultuous end of the year. To ask them to start a new year without their beloved principal, whom they were not given an opportunity to say goodbye to, will undoubtedly have an incredibly negative and completely unnecessary impact on their learning.

We implore superintendent Hohler and the administration to please reconsider this decision and allow us to keep Mr. McDermott at Forwood and allow our students a shred of normalcy in the fall.
