I am very optimistic about this school year. I intend to be present and available throughout the district, connecting with students and families. Understanding what is happening in our schools, buildings and throughout the district will be one of my priorities this year as it aligns with my focus on developing relationships with families and community.
Our district and its schools are the centers of the community. As such, the district believes that community engagement and collaboration between our staff, parents and residents are pivotal to the success of our students. The district has a volunteer program in place designed to strengthen partnerships between schools and our communities while preserving and enhancing educational opportunities for all students within the school district.
We invite you to take a minute to thank a staff member here in District 62. With nearly 830 employees in our district, we recognize that these individuals make significant contributions in our district. Please take a moment to thank someone who has made a difference.
