As we start the second semester of the school year, I am reminded of a quote by Walt Disney. He said, “All of our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” I believe this is especially important now as we move into a great deal of uncertainty at the State and Federal levels. When I think of dreams, I think of our students’ dreams. Our duty as professionals is to provide the best and highest quality educational experience possible for all of our students so they can pursue their dreams. We will have about 600 students graduating from this district in May and they are about to get a chance to take the next big step in their pursuit. We also have about 600 kindergartners who have been with us for only 90 school days and are getting a taste of our commitment to them for the next 12 ½ years. With all of the uncertainty that is surrounding us, please remember to step back and focus on the students. We are the “dream makers” and with our determination we will put all of our students in a position to have hope and feel like they can reach their dreams through the solid foundation we have provided.
