I truly love this time of year; the wonderful opportunities a new school year brings for the staff, students and parents. Each school year brings the chance for new insights, successes, and challenges, with the opportunity to grow, both as academic learners and personally as children and adults. Our achievements were numerous last year, and we should take time to reflect on those great accomplishments. We look forward to the possibilities of a new year and the relationships we will make along the way!
Our staff is dedicated to helping our students achieve their goals and we take on that responsibility to provide a quality education in a caring and nurturing environment. Our belief continues to be “Kids Come First.”
Our dedicated staff has been busy this summer and in the days before school begins, readying the building and classrooms and preparing lessons that will challenge our students and foster 21st century learners. Our district custodians and maintenance employees have done an outstanding job getting our facilities ready to go. The secretaries at each of our school buildings spent the summer working with parents and registering students and have done a great job. Our transportation department is ready to roll with five new buses and the co-curricular programs at the high school have been in full swing for weeks now.
I would like to wish everyone the best of luck in all of their endeavors. We are proud to provide numerous extracurricular offerings, including our interscholastic athletic programs, clubs, fine and performing arts, music and philanthropic programs; many with quite extraordinary results. I am looking forward to seeing all that our children and young adults will achieve throughout this school year.
As always, I welcome questions and comments and my office is always open. I feel it is important as superintendent to gain feedback in order to move our district forward. I am eager to start another school year and can’t wait to see all of our achievements!
