This month’s “Redskin Review” contains a detailed analysis of the district’s annual report. Our goal is to assist our stakeholders in understanding the fiscal operations of their school district. Our overall goal is to operate as efficiently as possible while maintaining excellent educational opportunities that our students deserve and our community expects. We also continue to focus on the maintenance and upkeep of our current facilities. The positive support of the community in achieving these goals is greatly appreciated. The newsletter will also include historical and projected enrollment figures.
The past nine months have not been easy to navigate for the school and community. We have all learned that you cannot take today for granted, and that you don’t know what the future holds. What has been impressive is the amount of resolve, flexibility and courage our students, parents and community have shown. From limited spectators to social distance measures, everyone has pitched in to do their part. It hasn’t been easy but your efforts to make certain that our kids can stay in school and active in their extra-curricular is appreciated.
I would like to commend our High School staff, Principal and Board of Education for being awarded the GreatSchools College Success Award. Our high school was only one of only 21% of high schools in the nation to receive this award. Our high school plays a vital role in preparing students to succeed in college and beyond. We are proud to have been honored for our successful track record of preparing students for college and their lifelong careers.
Our school calendar for the 2021-2022 school year has been approved and is contained in this newsletter. Our Open House will be on August 16, 2021 and the first day of school is set for Wednesday, August 18, 2021. The last day of school is on Thursday, May 19, 2022 and graduation for the class of 2022 will be held on Sunday, May 22, 2022.
I would like to recognize the work and effort of our extra-curricular activities. All students, coaches and advisors worked hard to keep the athletes healthy and in the game. Many of our athletes earned league, district and state honors.
On behalf of the Board of Education, administration, staff and students, thank you for your continued support of our school system. I wish you and your family a very happy and healthy Holiday season.
