A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT…..

A MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT…..
 
       Our second semester is underway and it’s hard to believe we are halfway through another school year. The students and staff continue to excel at high levels and the accomplishments of our students are certainly impressive. It is exciting to witness the incredible talents of our students on a daily basis.

We are also aware that these accomplishments cannot be achieved alone and without the support of our district residents and support groups, these successes would not even be possible. I would like to take a moment to thank all of our Booster groups for their support of our school. The Booster groups provide additional support for our academic and athletic programming. There financial assistance in providing facility upgrades is also appreciated. This Booster support is just another example of the excellence within our school and community.

As I mentioned in the December newsletter, the renewal of our current income tax levy will be on the May 7, 2019 ballot. This is a renewal and not a new levy. The 1.5% income tax was first approved in 2005, and our community has supported its renewal in 2009 and again in 2014. The renewal will be for a period of five years. The income tax is critical as it allows our district to provide excellent educational opportunities and facilities to our students and community. The income tax is responsible for 22% of our operating budget so its renewal is critical to our district operations. We certainly hope you take the opportunity to vote on this income tax renewal on May 7th.

We recently received some very good news which you may have read about. Our district was notified that we were awarded a $40,000 grant which we will be using to increase school safety. We will be upgrading our video surveillance and software systems at both buildings. This upgrade will increase the security of our buildings and the safety of our students. The grant money will pay for a substantial amount of the total project cost.

Inside this newsletter, you will find information regarding Kindergarten Registration and Screening. Our date for screening this year will be on April 11, 2019 from 8:00am - 5:00pm in the high school gymnasium. You will also find transportation and registration forms inside this newsletter that you should complete prior to the screening date. The registration and transportation forms are due to the elementary by March 22.

 Dates for summer camps are also included in this newsletter. For your future planning, Summer Shutdown week will be from Saturday, June 29 – Sunday, July 7. No school related activities will take place during this time.

As always, we appreciate your support for our schools and programming. We have a lot to be proud of in our community, and nothing is ever successful without the support of many. Go Redskins!

 

In Education,
