Welcome students, parents, and community members to the 2016-17 school year! It is a priviledge for our team to serve the community as your educational partners as we collectively work to ensure the readiness of each of our students for college, career, and citizenship in the 21st century world and economy. This work is increasingly urgent as the pace of change in the world is itself only increasing. The knowledge, skills, and dispositions of our students must match that change to allow them to be successful. While we cannot possibly anticipate every change and every associated career path that may be created or disappear, we can confidently anticipate that our students will need the ability to learn, unlearn, and learn anew with each passing grade, course, and year. To create the environment in which this development can take place, to be able to confidently state that we have caused learning in each of our students, we must partner with our students, parents, community, and support groups - our PTCs, advisory committees, Education Foundation, boosters, and guild - to provoke our very best thinking that will advantage our students as they progress in their opportunities and experiences. By doing so, we can increasingly ensure that our students are happy, healthy, learned, and READY!
I wish you all a successful year in every respect and look forward to working with you.
Superintendent of Schools
