Our graduation ceremonies were an uplifting capstone to a difficult but productive school year. We are emerging strong with new hope for the future. I am so appreciative of the hard work of our teachers, classified employees, management staff and the community. We have set the stage for a new year filled with new energy. New housing development is bringing more students and much needed increased funding. Our budget is balanced. We have a new strategic planning framework that focuses on improving the academic success of each student. And, we have hired an architectural firm to take us through a collaborative process to identify our facilities needs into the next decade.
