Superintendent's Corner

A brand new school year awaits us!  2016-2017 is set to begin on August 22, 2016 and you can feel the excitement and anticipation of teachers and students alike! 

Whenever something starts anew, it is always important to take the time to realize what this opportunity brings to you.  Maybe it will be a new classroom setup, new curriculum ideas, new school supplies, pledging to make better grades, get more involved in school activities, volunteer your time on a regular basis or begin to make definitive plans for after graduation.  We all (hopefully) will take the start of a new school year as the important opportunity it gives us to make a difference from what we have done in the past. 

Make a difference in your studies.  Make a difference for others.  Make a difference in your school.  Make a difference toward your future.  Make a difference for yourself.

Always remember that Together We Make a Difference!

Best Regards, 

Dr. Del Bosque
