BGR-1 Families,

It's hard to believe tomorrow will bring a close to our first half of this school year! As we end the semester, I can't thank you all enough for the support I have received as your superintendent, and for the tremendous dedication you all show to our students. It has been my intent to quickly move our district in the direction of unity, both internally and externally. I have spent the last six months learning, listening, being visible, getting to know students, staff and community members, communicating, analyzing practices and planning for our continued forward motion. I have utilized many effective barometers for feedback and look forward to additional focus groups and a survey scheduled for just after the first of the year. More about this is forthcoming. I look forward to the additional feedback as we consider what should be included in our next strategic plan.

As we prepare to wrap up the semester, I would like to wish you all a very peaceful and enjoyable holiday break, and to remind you that tomorrow is a half day/early dismissal. We will follow the same release time as the other half days this year.

I hope this year that you can use this time to reflect on items that are most important, rather than on what is most urgent. As Superintendent, I have grown to appreciate how easily the urgent can push aside the important. I hope that, d
uring the holiday break, you will also be able to step back and focus on the important topics in your professional and personal lives. Best wishes for a peaceful and joyful holiday.
