Superintendent's Message

As we head into the holiday season, we all begin to think about gifts.  Children begin to create their wish lists and parents begin to plan their budgets.  If all parents were told that there was one gift you could give your child that would make a lasting difference on the rest of their life and that this gift was of no cost, would you not want to give that to your child?

That gift you can give your child is to read with them at night for just 30 minutes.  It will give your child precious minutes of your attention.  It will give your child a boost on the one skill that affects all other learning.  Reading is the most important skill a child can develop.  It is the pathway to success in school, to graduation from high school, success in college, and career success in life.  These are all things we want for our children.

This year as you celebrate the holidays, set aside time to read with your children.  You can read to them, listen to them read, read a book as a family, or with older children be sure they set aside time to read.  Take time to talk with your child about what they are reading.  Have them tell you their favorite part, what they learned, tell about a favorite character and who that character reminded them of, or even to tell you what they did not like about the book and why.  Reading can be done in any language.  If you are uncomfortable reading, find someone else that can read for you such as an older sibling, an aunt or uncle, or even a neighbor.

This year give your child a gift that will last the rest of their life – your time spent with your child reading.

Happy Holidays!

Lois Klein, Superintendent

 District School Calendar Update

The District calendar for future years is up for review.  District school calendars are part of the negotiated contracts with employees and are approved by the Board of Education.  In order to allow the District time to consider a wide variety of calendar options for the future, the 2015-2016 calendar has been approved following the calendaring pattern of the previous year.  The calendar development process will include opportunities for parents and community members to provide, evaluate, and prioritize ideas.  This input will then be utilized along with input from all staff members.  A drafted calendar or two drafted calendars will be presented to the Board of Education for approval.  Calendars for the years 2015-2017 and beyond are expected to be approved and posted on the District website by June 30, 2015.
