Superintendent’s Message

August 22, 2014

Welcome back to our returning families and a very special welcome to those who are new to our District. I hope you had a wonderful summer and you are now ready to learn.

Once again, we were busy over the summer, adding improvements to our schools. In addition to the turf project we rearranged the media center in the high school and middle school to add 16 new computers in a more open area concept. New carpeting was laid in a number of areas. Two more early childhood rooms were renovated. The elementary playgrounds were spruced up to complement the new elementary outdoor fitness area. All of our parking areas received preventative asphalt maintenance; crack sealing, seal coating and asphalt patching/repair. Lines were repainted and are more visible. Three new buses were purchased; highlighted by a new special needs bus equipped with wheel chair lift.

We also offered professional development opportunities for our staff. They continue to model and exhibit a commitment to lifelong learning.

Back to School Nights were extremely well attended. The sights and sounds were a prelude to the enthusiasm and excitement of Day 1. They are the first step each year to the development of a working partnership between child, parent and teacher for the school year ahead. I encourage parents to attend future conference days as found on our school calendar.
