Here we go again! I am not sure how many blog readers will be checking in on Day 1, but hello to those of you who thought to give a look.
For some, it is hard to let go of the carefree days of summer, but it cannot last forever (or else it would have to be renamed – I think some will tell us that would be called “retirement!”). For those of us getting back to the reality of school, let’s focus on the fact that the return for this next school year presents new opportunities for all – students, teachers, principals, and parents.
What new routines will you establish this year to make the school year a success? The start of a school year lets you reinvent who you are when it comes to your “school world.”
The district is ready for the second year of implementation of our Strategic Plan. (I will have more to write about on this topic in future posts.) Teachers and school administrators were active throughout the summer months involved in many professional development programs connected to the Strategic Plan and in other endeavors that will help make for an exciting school year.
For now – I welcome you back. The Woodbury City Public Schools are a special place. We are looking forward to working together to make the 2009-10 school year the best it possibly can be for all.
