Welcome Back to School – 2019

Welcome Back to School – 2019


Welcome back, CPS Family! It’s hard to believe that we open our doors
again for another great school year in just a few days. But, you know, for us the hard work never
really stops. All summer long I’ve seen employees from administrators
to teachers, to custodial staff to school plants employees, and even our parent and
community volunteers all preparing for the big day. It’s thanks to all of these groups and many
more that we have so much to look forward to, and a lot to celebrate from the 2018-19
school year. This past year saw significant changes for
our district including the development of a new strategic plan, a reorganization to
better allocate resources, a redesigned web presence and visual identity, the construction
of the new Great Bridge Primary School, and an increased focus on school safety. But what didn’t change was our commitment
to providing high quality educational experiences for all of our students. I’m proud to report that preliminary results
indicate that our district is 100% accredited, and that great news is thanks to incredible
dedication of our entire school community. We have also been accepted into the League
of Innovative School Districts and I look forward to our membership in this national
coalition with a mission to accelerate innovation and opportunities through technology. I’m also very excited to continue to collaborate
with our community and military partners this year. It’s no secret that our schools and students
benefit from these important connections. Just like a fresh coat of paint can brighten
a room and make it feel brand new, a new school year can brighten our perspective on what
is possible. Whether you are a brand new teacher or a veteran
teacher or a parent sending your child off for their very first day of kindergarten,
whether you are learning to open your locker for the first time or joining the ranks of
our distinguished alumni as part of the Class of 2020, I challenge you to use this year
to INSPIRE others, to ENGAGE in meaningful relationships, and to EMPOWER yourself to
achieve your dreams. Let’s have a great year!
