Celebrating an Exceptional Start of the School Year!
I am thrilled to reach out to you today to celebrate the incredible first two weeks of the school year that we have experienced together as a school community.
Over the past two weeks, our schools have been buzzing with energy and enthusiasm. Students have been settling into their routines, reconnecting with friends, and embarking on a journey of learning and growth. It's truly heartening to witness their eagerness to explore new ideas and engage with their education.
I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to our dedicated teachers, staff, and administrators who have worked tirelessly to ensure a smooth transition back to in-person learning. Their commitment to our students' well-being and academic success is evident in every classroom and every interaction.
To our families, thank you for your continued support. Your partnership is vital in creating a nurturing and enriching educational environment. We value your involvement in your child's education and encourage you to maintain open lines of communication with our teachers and staff.
As we move forward into the coming weeks and months, I am confident that the positive momentum we've built will continue to drive us toward excellence. Our focus remains steadfast on providing an inclusive and equitable education to all our students. We are dedicated to fostering a respectful and supportive atmosphere for everyone.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and looking forward to the many achievements and successes that await us.
Jeffrey A. Lawson, Ed.D.
