As the summer is winding down, I want to say that I am excited and honored to be your new superintendent. I realize that many people have laid the foundation for our school, and now I look forward to working with all of you to pave the future for Carmichaels Area School District.
The campus is buzzing with a flurry of activity as we prepare for the coming year. The buildings and grounds are coming together nicely thanks to the hard work of our custodial team. Teachers are working tirelessly to decorate rooms in order to create a sense of excitement for their new students. Students are in and out of our buildings for summer camps and learning opportunities. The administrative staff is working to finalize schedules in each of the respective buildings. Sports teams, cheerleaders, and band members are diligently preparing for their fall seasons. I hope that you are as excited as I am for a fresh start to the 2018 – 2019 school year.
To our newest students and parents, welcome to the Carmichaels family. As you and your children start this educational journey, I hope that you find this place warm and inviting. We look forward to working with you to ensure that your children receive the best education that they can get.
To our current students, continue to work hard and push the limits. Your education is an important piece to the successes you will see in life. Our staff is here to work with you and to guide you towards graduation. Remember to be kind and respectful toward your peers.
To our seniors, enjoy the time that you have left here at Carmichaels. Be the leaders that our children so desperately need. Whether you are working towards a career, or some sort of higher education, please know that we are here for you, and that care about you. This year will fly by. Before you know it, you will be crossing that stage, preparing for life after high school.
I truly hope that you enjoy the remaining days of your summer. I hope that you have used this time to rest and refresh yourself for this coming year.
In closing, it is now our turn as a community, to innovate our school district, and lay the groundwork for our students to strive toward further success in whatever endeavors that they may choose to pursue. I look forward to working together to push our district to new heights.
Always Remember… “Once a Mike, Always a Mike!”
