Welcome Back Frontier Students & Staff!
Dear Frontier Staff, Family and Friends,
Welcome to another exciting school year at Frontier Schools. It is my pleasure to continue serving as Superintendent of Frontier Schools where we work towards continuous improvement and high standards. At Frontier, we will continue to provide an exceptional educational environment in which students can best learn and we will maintain a safe and friendly atmosphere that encourages students’ desire for knowledge and to help them express themselves effectively.
We will continue reaching out to our staff, families and community through our “Frontier News” newsletter. This newsletter will inform our entire Frontier family about what's happening in our schools, as well as provide updates on our programs and other school and district highlights. Another way to stay connected is to follow us on social media. Our Facebook and Twitter accounts are provided in this newsletter.
Thank you for your continued commitment to quality education for all of our students at Frontier Schools. I wish all our parents, students and staff members a wonderful school year.
