School Closure Update
I want to start by thanking all of you for adapting to the changes resulting from school closure.

So thank you for your understanding

Superintendent's Message

Greetings parents and neighbors,

I want to extend a warm welcome to you as we begin the 2019-20 school year. We hope that this year will be the most successful ever for our district. As that is our aim, I want to share with you how we plan to make this year our best ever.

Collaborative teaming: From the top level of our district (the school board) to each and every person who works here we will be working together to bring success to all our students. Research tells us this is the most effective single strategy to ensure all students achieve success. Which for us means all students at or above grade level in reading and math.

Service: Our admin team has decided to make service our focus for the year. Service is at the heart of who we want to be as leaders, and we will challenge ourselves to act on this desire. We thank you for allowing us to serve you.

Communication: We have improved in this area, but it continues to be an area of focus as there are so many successes as well as challenges we would like to share, it can become confusing and not as timely as we would like. Thank you for letting us know how we can become better in this area.

Learning: Our mission is: Engage, Learn, Motivate, Achieve. These words are at the core of what we do daily. We will always keep our eyes on the prize, which is learning for all.

We are looking forward to the year ahead. We truly love our work, and we hope that is evident by the way we do our jobs every day.

Kevin Acuff
