Superintendent's Message - 9/14/18

This week, we remembered the events of September 11, 2001. I was encouraged to see many of you incorporating 9/11 into your curriculum as a way to help our students become #SCSDCivicReady. The anniversary of that tragic day should continue to serve as a reminder of the importance of us coming together, in spite of our differences, and working together for the greater good. As our recent convocation displayed, we have a great and diverse staff here in the SCSD, and when we are working together to help our students achieve success, we will thrive.
I also had the opportunity this week to make even more school visits, and it was great to see the hard work you are all doing already in your buildings. On Thursday, I attended the back to school picnic at Roberts, and it was wonderful to see so many families attending to get involved in their children’s education. I look forward to celebrating more of these community engagement events throughout the school year.
You won’t want to miss this week’s #SCSDLookBack video, which features ELMS scientists growing seedlings, ITC students creating their resumes, Corcoran students enjoying games at their Field Days event, Franklin scholars enjoying pizza day in the cafeteria, Dr. King engaging families at a PTO meeting, Webster scholars learning in station rotations, HW Smith scholars learning through working and playing together, and so much more. Please take a few minutes to watch – it is always encouraging to see our students engaged in their learning and proud of their work!
Tomorrow, September 15th, Cause for the Cuse is hosting a fundraiser to benefit SCSD music programs. Click here to learn more about Rock for the Cuse, a fun event that will include Dinosaur BBQ, local bands and more. I hope you will consider attending in support of our #SCSDArts programming!
