Letter to Parents/Guardians

Dear Parents/Guardians,
As we quickly approach the last day of school, our students, faculty and staff are gearing up to what we hope will be a relaxing and fun-filled summer vacation. For school and district administrators, this is an exciting time as well. It is a time to reflect on the successes of the past year and to put the final pieces in place for initiatives that will continue to improve our district even more in the coming school year.
We continually seek to improve, reach new heights and offer unique and challenging programming for all students. Your input is a valued and essential piece of the planning process. Please share your thoughts with us by completing a nine (9) question survey (link is attached) July 1, 2015.
I hope your child has enjoyed the educational journey and has grown socially and academically during this past year. Now it is time to look forward to summertime fun and rejuvenation.
Please look for summer updates as well as previews of coming events. We will be frequently updating the website and regularly posting on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I invite you to join us on social media if you have not as yet.
We are grateful for your support, humbled by your trust and are eagerly awaiting greeting your children on August 31st.
Dr. Kimberly Shaver-Hood
