Another school year has closed. I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has helped our students and our schools this year. We realize that we could not do the wonderful things at our school without the support from many of you.
Many of you have spent many hours helping in classrooms, working at school events, or serving on committees. When I have visited schools I have seen parents reading with students, helping them with math, or giving support for classwork. Every event I attended for music, athletics, drama, or special programs, there were always parent volunteers there to help. We could not do it without your help and it is greatly appreciated.
I want to thank our staff for an outstanding year. This year was especially challenging as we dealt with a winter that seemed to never end. Many of our staff spent extra hours to help us handle the situation as best as possible. Even though we had a rough winter our teachers and support staff stayed focused on making sure we continued to take care of our top priority, helping our students. Thank you!
I am also very appreciative for our community! Our community members truly are there to support the work we do each day. This was evident as the entire community came together to support our students during the football season. It was also evident when they supported our schools in May. We will continue to do our best to educate and care for the children of our community.
This weekend we will celebrate our 2014 graduating class. I thank them for their positive leadership and commitment to their education. As a class they earned more than 13 million dollars in scholarships, a true testament to their academic achievements. They have raised the bar for all of our students across the district and have truly served as a positive influence. I wish them the best as they venture to continue their education, serve in the military, and begin their careers. They are truly an outstanding group of young men and women!
Thank you to everyone who made a difference this year! I look forward to making next year even better for our students and our community.
Dedicated to the future of our students,
