WE DID IT!
We did it! The graduation ceremonies held over the weekend at CMR and GFHS and those to be held on Tuesday for PGEC and Thursday for the GED/HISET graduates mark the culmination of an entire body of work: 13 years of educational opportunity provided by you for our students! None of what makes these celebrations possible happened by accident or by chance. It happened because of the dedication, talent, energy and care you bring to your work every single day of the school year!
And this school year is almost in the books! As this exciting and productive school year draws to a close, please take some time to celebrate your personal goals and the District goals that were accomplished. We have worked hard to make our strategic plan come to life around:
• Our Kids – Student Achievement;
• Our Community – Stewardship and Accountability; and
• Our Future – Healthy, Safe and Secure Schools
We have focused on what matters most—ensuring our students are learning and that we continue to grow as a staff and district. We rode for the brand and made our community proud. We engaged our community in new ways because we understand we can’t do our work in isolation. We thanked our community for their support and will continue to do so. We worked hard and hopefully took the time to celebrate the outcomes. Please know that I deeply value your efforts and your commitment in doing this work.
Some of you will continue these efforts over the next three months. Thanks in advance to all of you working these summer days to prepare for the 2014-2015 school year. For those of you who are retiring after serving the district for many years, I wish you the best. To everyone else, I hope you get the chance to recharge your batteries a bit. As for me, I will take some time to celebrate this first year as your superintendent, but I also plan to roll up my sleeves to continue the good work we have started together. I will not wish the days away, but I will be looking forward to seeing you at Convocation on September 2 at 8:00 am in the CMR Fieldhouse. In the meantime…
Take care. Be safe. Stay well.
