Superintendent’s Message

 Life’s Little Reset Button

When making a visit to CMR a few years ago, I noticed this:
I snapped this picture because it nails the truth.  As we move into the start of the second half of the school year, we get a clean slate.  We get renewed opportunities to improve, to push forward and to make a difference.
I challenge you to take advantage of this little reset.  I challenge you to focus on being excellent in your work, on motivating yourself and others, on being tenacious when times are hard, and on building positive relationships with all.  The second semester is just as important as the first as we seek our vision:  All kids engaged in learning today, for life tomorrow.  90 more days to make it happen.  Let’s do this!
Take care. Be safe.  Stay well.
