I would also like to thank everyone who supported the attempt at the referendum. The outcome is sad, but we will continue to try to meet the needs of our kids. Changes are here and this will be an especially important time for parents and teachers to work together for the benefit of our kids. We will need to put even more of an effort into providing for our kids the education and preparation they will need to help lead our families, businesses, communities, and nation into a better place. For those of you born in the 70s you probably remember the movie Breakfast Club… one of the lines in that movie made by the janitorial staff to the Assistant Principal about who will be taking care of us in our old age has always remained in the forefront of my mind. I have tried to make sure all the kids know that they are a valuable part of our community and lives. Now is the time to really give them the extra support they will need, and I think we are the ones to do it! Thanks to technology we have new ways to communicate and work together! Don’t forget to check out the web pages and call if you feel that I am missing anything.
