Welcome Back! - 7/31/18

Welcome back!


There is nothing like the beginning of a new school year. It’s a time when students are excited to find out who their new teachers will be, they’re excited about the new subjects they will learn, they are wondering what it’s going to be like. There’s hope that they’re going to be more successful than they were the year before, no matter what their level of success was previously. A new school year is just a new beginning.


I think new teachers feel the same way. It’s a new job, a new opportunity with new responsibilities and obligations but also new friends, as well. I think we are starting this year off in a great way.


I truly enjoyed Convocation. I think Mr. John Antonetti did a great job of helping us set the tone for what it is we want to accomplish. He reminded us that it’s about relationships and that we can make a difference, and I think that universal truth resonated. I truly enjoyed hearing last year’s Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Felicia Batts, share with you her words of inspiration. And I was very excited to present to you our new 2019 Teacher of the Year, Mr. Jarred Moore of Northeast High School. Two great examples of the very best that we have to offer.


Last night, we had the opportunity to greet students and parents at Open House. What an exciting time – when families come in and share with us their children and begin to receive the new expectations for the school year. It’s also a time when they will share with us the follow up from the PBIS Back to School Bash, where they received school supplies and got ready for the year. So, it’s just a great time of year.


Let’s do all we can to continue this “honeymoon” of the new school year. Great relationships with students, great relationships with parents, great relationships with our new co-workers, just a great opportunity for making this the very best year ever.


I wish you the very best in this new school year and I’m expecting that we will have our best year yet. Welcome back!
