you are aware, our school is our community’s school. As a public school, the resources required to
turn out the next generation of educated citizens come from all of us. From the
contributions of our parents to those of our neighbors, a community effort is
what it takes to provide excellent educational opportunities for our young people.
the past few weeks a couple of seemingly disparate events have clearly reminded
me of this basic truth and just what a privilege it is to serve as
Superintendent of Northwood’s School.
first was when I opened my mailbox and found the envelope that contained the
bill for the second half of my property taxes for the year. When I opened it
and looked at our family’s contribution to our school as well as the other
publicly funded entities in our county, I recognized my good fortune to have a
front row seat in knowing just how much those dollars benefit our students and
second was while I was enjoying my participation in the graduation ceremony of
the NHS Class of 2015. Observing the pride on the faces of our graduates and
their families and once again having a front row seat to just how much and how
many people contribute to that culminating moment helped me to again appreciate
what our community invests in our young people.
you all for the part you play in advancing all of our future through your
contributions to Northwood’s School.
of the contributions and the work that has been done to open a new school on our
campus in the fall of 2017 will become apparent soon as the dirt begins to be
moved to prepare the site for the building project. The plan is to complete a new parking area
for NHS students as well as temporary drop off driveways at Olney prior to
school beginning again in August. Your patience with the added dust and need
for flexibility during construction is much appreciated.
Enjoy your summer and as always, I
welcome your questions, comments and suggestions.
