Superintendent's Corner

Welcome back to a new school year!  We are United and Excited to see our students return to campus and embark on another year of learning in the classroom and developing as amazing individuals!

This past summer, I followed one particular sunflower field from beginning to end. I saw it when it was cultivated, the first bulb, the first bloom of the field, to ultimately the harvesting of it. I was intrigued by the transformation of the field that contained some twenty or so acres of sunflowers. These were grown and would be used to produce sunflower oil.

As an observer-participant, I was moved by the understanding. It was more than simply enjoying the richness of the plants. The ideas and analogies I drew from the sunflower field’s changes were many and thought-provoking. Remarkably, one seed could produce a plant that could produce 1,700 seeds that could feed the multitude of bees and birds.

With respect to a school setting, I drew the analogy of the seed -- a seed cultivated and nourished, could produce so much. That notion is similar to the belief that the seed of one idea in a child can produce exponentially more.  Observer/participant learning is of unlimited value. Don't just observe but participate.  Be involved in your school!  We have so much for everyone to become a part of whether it is our special event days, athletic activities, classroom projects, our PTO, or any other way you choose to be a part of our school family.

Best regards and welcome back! Looking forward to another great year!
