Superintendent's Corner

We have entered a new semester and a new calendar year 2016.  At this time of year, most people make resolutions of better health or a renewed commitment to self-improvement.  We, too, also see this new semester as a time to refresh and renew our beliefs in what we do.  Benchmarks were given this week, giving a coming reality to state testing in the last months of the year.  Plans are being made for prom and graduation.  Final pictures of the year’s classes, groups and teams are passing by.  A school year seems to accelerate once the Fall semester has completed.

Yet as all of these activities unfold around us, we remain steadfast in our commitment to our students and to this school.  They are what each day of the school year is all about.  It is them, our students, who keep us focused on what is important, what needs to happen in the classroom and how we center our plans for the future. 

We are excited to see the year develop as each day passes.  No day is ever the same – each one is a unique experience for each student, each teacher, each administrator and staff member.  The main objective is that we experience each day – the good and the not-so-good - together as a school family.  

Best Regards, 

Dr. Del Bosque

Superintendent
