Dear Families,

It was wonderful seeing everyone on campus for the first time today after eighteen long months of distance learning. I am proud of our community for all we did to ensure that our students remained academically and socially involved throughout the pandemic.

Going forward, we are committed to expanding literacy opportunities for our students both inside and outside of the classroom. Our goals include increasing student proficiency in the language arts, math, and science; providing more tools and resources for our leaders; developing a portfolio system for our students, and creating a strong sense of equity, diversity, and inclusiveness in our community.

I am also pleased and honored to have two amazing consultants, Dr. Carla Garcia-Fernandez and Dr. Andrea Sonnier, working with us to make our school more equitable. We will make their resources and materials available to our students and their families this year.

As we begin this school year together, I ask you to join me in filling this year with kindness and compassion.

With Cub Pride,

Nancy Hlibok Amann, Ph.D.
Superintendent
