• A Message from the Superintendent

    Good morning,

    This coming Sunday we celebrate a very special day.  On May 9, 1914 President Woodrow Wilson who allegedly is called the father of Mother’s Day signed a proclamation declaring the second Sunday of May as a time for public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country. I remember well that morning of March 15th 2005 when my beloved Mom was called home…my best friend and the “force” that made me get to school…gave me the “look” when I goofed up…and I certainly got my fair share of those…but above all her unending support and love and her  constant reminders to me of the importance of doing my very best every day to help, understand, recognize the good in each and advocate for children entrusted to our care… 
     
    As I go through the schools…over and over again…I see so many of you doing just that… I see your smiles…I see you hug, comfort, encourage, and support…I hear the gentleness in your voices and I sense the heartbreak in your heart when a child faces a tragic moment in their young lives. There is no manual for Moms … the are no Cliff Notes…your ending love just keeps surfacing…
     
    So this weekend on your special day we recognize you…but there is not a day that goes by when that special love…A Mother’s love is not felt…
     
    We must also remember that for some, this day has a void in some young families…I have watched one young family for a number of years here navigate their way through our schools without their beloved Mom who was called home way too early in life…and Dad filled both roles…despite a demanding and dangerous job… Dad became Mom and Dad…at every event…traveling to away games etc…just always there…just an awesome individual…
     
    So to those men in our schools who have filled a void and like so many Moms that just keep on giving…we salute you…with appreciation and love…
     
    Moms…Thank you for so much…your love and gentle ways at home and in our schools is so cherished and appreciated…many will never forget you…
     
    To all who have been a Mom to so many…my prayer is that God will continue to bless you…Thank you and Happy Mothers Day
