The school year is moving along quickly. I was reflecting over the past weekend of how lucky I am to be leading such a diverse and talented group of students and staff. I am grateful for the essential contributions of our parents and our community. The complex blend of culture, backgrounds and experiences is the hallmark of South High School. I am pleased with the school climate and effort given to me by staff and students.
In the next few weeks we have many sporting and arts events scheduled at South. Please take a moment to attend as many of these opportunities as possible. Teachers are participating in one of 26 learning communities geared toward sharing best practices in teaching and using student work to inform learning targets in their classrooms.
Finally, it was good to see the many families that attended conferences. We believe it is important for families and schools to work together and share responsibility for student success. We very much value family members’ expertise about their children. Families know a student best and we can learn from you. Also, we want our students to know the importance of schools and families together supporting their work at school.
Principal, South High School
