A new school year presents opportunities for various beginnings- new classes, new faces, sometimes new courses, and often new materials. We know that newness alone cannot produce transformation. We ourselves must be willing to be caught up in the rebirth that is possible with each new year. Starting a new year gives us the opportunity to make new plans, design new strategies, and implement new ideas. This year as in the past, we will concentrate on the process that spurs continuing advancement, evaluating what we have, determine what we can do to improve, and identify what we need to make those improvements. To achieve this mission we must work together. We know that today's children will face challenges and opportunities we cannot even imagine. As partners in their education, we must prepare them for their exciting future.
We can do this by providing a system focus and educational purpose to help all children regardless of race, affiliations or socio-economic status reach their educational goals.
Together we can make this school year our best year yet.
