  • Superintendent's Summer Message

     

    Whew! Can you believe we have made another wonderful school year?

     

    It seems only yesterday we were in August and school was just beginning. It is amazing how time flies when you are having fun.

     

    Have you ever heard the term “R & R?” It stands for “Rest and Relaxation.”

     

    I certainly think our students have earned some “R & R,” don’t you?

     

    I hope your summer vacation is fun. I guarantee you it will fly by…but just to keep learning at the front of every day in the summer I want to ask you to consider a second set of “R & R.”

     

    The first “R” is “Read.” Everyday! Make sure you read with or to your child if you are a parent and at least thirty minutes a day if you are a student. The biggest need in our district is for students to be daily readers. Don’t let the summer be a time when students avoid reading. Make it an expectation. Good readers are usually very good students. Trust me, it does a mind good!

     

    The second “R” is “Recreate.” Again, everyday! This word means “get active, move around, be physically fit.” When I was young, summers were meant for activity. Now unfortunately many students either stayed glued to the television, their iPhone, or their computer. Some of that is good…but nothing beats getting out and being active. Trust me, it does a body good!

     

    So everyone’s summer assignment is “Get some much needed R & R.” Yep, that means rest and relaxation but it also means read and recreate.

     

    Make it a great summer! The choice is yours.

  • *District News*

     

    With the new design of our web site, it may be of benefit to note that there are now four (4) tabs in the center section labeled: Welcome (which is normally red as it appears selected by default), Maps & Directions, Headlines, and Discussion. Each of the last 3 are normally gray but will turn red when clicked and will display any content located there. In particular, Headlines (highly recommended!) is a good place to look for news-worthy items such as noteworthy achievements at any of our schools. This saves space on our home page by not making it too long, forcing the reader to scroll down to read.
