Newsletter  :  September 2014

From the Superintendent...

I am so excited about this school year!  I say that sincerely.  It is very true that we have had to face down difficulty after difficulty, especially in the past few months.  It is true we don't yet have a permanent budget. And, because of that we are lacking some of the materials and textbooks we should have in place. But, the wonderful thing is you can't keep great teachers down.  Our teachers are coming back with as much enthusiasm as ever and figuring out with the help of capable and qualified central office professionals how to accomplish our goals with ingenuity and imagination.


Capable new hires are coming into the district.  Our principals are focused and are confident in themselves and their staffs.  Our buildings are cleaner and safer than ever. Read More
