I hope everyone has had an enjoyable and relaxing summer. Time is quickly winding down and we are three weeks away from the start of another school year. I want to thank each of you for your support and I am thankful for this opportunity to serve our district. I am proud of every employee for your dedication to our students, parents and community.
Let us begin this new school year with a time of celebration as we look back on our accomplishments during the past two years and continue our journey to becoming a District of Excellence.
We have involved all stakeholders in the development of a clear mission and vision for our district. We developed a strategic plan, or a road map, which takes into account where we were and where we want to be by the year 2020. Finally, the most important step is monitoring this plan to make sure we are meeting our goals and objectives. This is an ongoing process, but each school and department has developed a monitoring system to evaluate our progress and adjust our plan along the way.
Finally, and perhaps the most important step of all, reflect on the journey each of us has taken so far. The key to personal success is to evaluate your performance, celebrate things you have done well and learn from situations that are opportunities for growth. Every day we spend in this profession should be a learning moment. As we begin another new year, let us focus on our district vision, which ensures that “Every Child Succeeds”.
