Happy Monday! It has been a glorious few days in which we as a district community have had the opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of our students. Whether continuation events on the elementary and middle school levels or graduation ceremonies on the high school levels, this last week vividly demonstrated so much of the positive accomplishments being achieved daily by our teachers, administrators, support staff, families, and above all our students. We all deserve to take justifiable pride in these joyous milestones.
I am also incredibly gratified to share that, following a thoughtful and deliberative process among the school’s classified and certified employees as well as its School Accountability Committee, Central Elementary School has approved its proposed innovation plan model. Pending the approval of our local and state boards of education, the new Central will bring several exciting offerings to our students and families. These will include the introduction of wraparound support services, an expanded instructional day for students, increased opportunities for faculty and staff to collaborate, and making the school an even more welcoming environment for families and community members. Thank you CES staff!
As a reminder, the World of Wonder summer learning program begins on May 31, 2022! I am excited for students to participate in this rich experience and thank the dedicated staff who are making year-round learning possible at Adams 14.
Finally, as many of us prepare to pack up our classrooms for the summer, I wish all of our instructional and campus-based staff members a relaxing and well-deserved summer holiday. We have been through a lot together this year, but our students and community are better off because of the focus each of you has brought to their education each day. I’ll be keeping in touch with all of you throughout the summer with updates, and I hope you’ll stay in touch as well. In the meantime, I could not be prouder to call all of you my colleagues and teammates here in Adams 14.
