Once again, August is upon us, and teachers, students, and parents alike are gearing toward the coming school year. Personally, I continue to feel the excitement that a new year brings. In this, a new year means a new start for everyone involved. Moving into my second year in this leadership role, I look forward to building on the past years, and push our wonderful district to new heights.
The excitement that we all feel is budding on campus. More and more students are being seen in the buildings and on the grounds, preparing for summer academic events, attending camps, or getting ready for the athletic competitions in the fall. More and more teachers are working to decorate their classrooms to fill them with color and energy to welcome new students. The custodial team has been working tirelessly to get the buildings and grounds in top condition for the coming year. This flurry of activity continues to build the energy and excitement to start the 2019 – 2020 school year.
I would like to take a moment to personally welcome those of you who are new to our district. Welcome to the Carmichaels family! This will be a wonderful start to an educational journey that I hope you find warm and inviting. We want to ensure that your children receive the very best education that can be offered within a caring and trusting atmosphere.
I continue to urge our current students to relentlessly push the limits of your educational journey. Your education is something that will take you far in life. This year, and in the years to come, we want to foster your passions, and build on your experiences to help you see success as you leave our buildings to venture into the world. Always remember to be kind and respectful to you peers and teachers as we work to expand your horizon.
To our seniors, take time to enjoy your last days here at Carmichaels. This year will fly by for you. Always remember that our students look up to for your leadership. Be a role model for our children to follow. As you work towards careers, or higher education, please know that we are here for, and that we truly care for you. In no time at all, you will be walking across that stage, moving on to that next moment in your life journey.
I hope that you enjoy the remaining days of your summer. I hope that this time has allowed you to rest and energize yourself for the coming year. Rest assured that we are ready to welcome you all back, and begin to work to push the limits of this amazing school district.
In closing, it is my hope to unite our community and schools for the unparalleled work toward the purpose of innovating our school district to give our children unique experiences that will drive us toward continued success in whatever they may choose to do. I looking forward to working together as one entity to build a school district that is unrivaled.
Always Remember… “Once a Mike, Always a Mike!”
