The promise of a new year

Posted Sunday, August 21, 2016

Tomorrow is a powerful day for our students.  The promise of a new year, new friends, and an adult that believes in them is just part of the emotions our students feel as they will walk to the playground tomorrow morning.  I love watching teachers interact with their new students, kindergarten parents taking pictures, and children catching up with their classmates.  It's definitely my favorite day of the year.  Parents entrust their most prized possessions to our school district and it is not something we take lightly.  It's a new year for all of us and I can't wait to get it started in the morning.

Below is one of my favorite songs written by one of my favorite artists.  Welcome back!

"Fall is here, hear the yell
Back to school, ring the bell
Brand new shoes, walking blues
Climb the fence, books and pens
I can tell that we are gonna be friends"

- The White Stripes
