Superintendent’s News!

The 2021-22 school year is almost at an end! What a year it has been! I would like to thank all of you for your patience as we negotiated the challenging times of COVID. We have been working to get back to “normal”, and will keep working to improve programs and opportunities for students in the 2022-23 school year.

April and May were Smarter Balance testing months. Thank you for doing your best to keep your kids in school while we tested. We had some illness that was unavoidable, but we did our best!

For elementary students, it’s always a good idea to keep your students reading daily and doing math facts review (specifically multiplication) during the summer months so re-entering school in the fall is an easier transition. Students who spend a bit of time keeping their skills sharp will offset the “summer slide” and progress at a faster pace because they can continue their learning closer to where they left off in June.

An abundance of fun, engaging and education activities can be found online for students of all ages. Simply Google “summer educational activities” for students of similar age, and you will find ideas galore! You might even do things together such as grow a garden, learn to cook new dishes, plan a special family event or dinner, or keep a journal on a family vacation. The sky is the limit!

Older students may enjoy enrolling in an online college class, attending a summer camp, getting a job, volunteering, job-shadowing someone in a career that interests them, or researching post-graduation opportunities. There are MANY great suggestions online if you wish to explore options!

For a full slate of events between now and the end of the school year, please see the “Upcoming Events” list above, or follow the link to the Full Calendar.
