Greetings District Families! I hope you are all enjoying the summer thus far!
You may or may not recognize me as being one of the District’s seven elected school board members. I was recently reelected for a second term in the spring. On that note, please always remember that your school board members are elected. We’re here to serve you and are interested in hearing from you regarding issues going on in our district. It would also be nice and refreshing to hear from people regarding some of the positive things going on in our district, which, I know there are many! School board elections take place every April and any registered voter is welcome to run and serve on our school board.
Serving on the school board for the district is largely a volunteer activity that requires numerous hours, outside of meetings, to educate ourselves on school governance as well as issues facing schools today. The service on a school board is a great way to serve the school district and to stay involved. I encourage families in the district to be involved. The school board meets the third Monday of every month in the high school, usually room 219. It would be great to see public attendance at these meetings!
It truly takes the entire community to educate our children. This requires more work than what our teachers do, administrators, support staff and board members, it requires parental involvement, community involvement, volunteering etc. I encourage every parent to be involved in their children’s education. With the new school year right around the corner, be sure to reach out to your children’s teachers and ask how you can be involved in the district - how can you volunteer? How can you help support the teachers work? Etc.
I firmly believe that if we want to live in a great community, we have to first make it a great community. Making it a great community starts with each and every one of us being engaged and staying involved to make our community a better place.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be fully engaged in our district governance and for trusting me to serve our district.
