Superintendent Weekly Update

I hope this weekly bulletin finds each of you in good health and having enjoyed a relaxing weekend. The weather Friday night and all day Saturday was not too inviting, but yesterday was gorgeous. I hope you had a chance to get outside to enjoy it.

October is Learning Disabilities Month. It is important during LDA Month to focus less on the disabilities aspect and focus more on the incredible abilities so many of these individuals possess as well as emphasize the phenomenal achievements and important strides so many of these individuals have made.
