Dear Colleagues,

I hope you each had a productive week.  (And what a difference in our weather!) I know some of our schools had their back-to-school nights this week.  I was privileged to attend Schofield’s last night and watched with both pride and admiration the teacher presentations in many classrooms.  These typically included brief bios of our colleagues’ education and families, and summaries of curricula and classroom routines.  I especially appreciated the sage advice provided to the families of our youngest students on how they could extend learning at home, particularly by reading with their students and talking with them about the characters and plot.  In Bevin Hale’s second grade class, she shared the following quote, which really resonated with me and many parents in attendance.


Most parents will likely not remember everything that was said on these evenings, but they will remember how they felt.  I know many parents left Schofield last night feeling grateful for such a caring and expert learning environment.  Thanks to you all, that’s something that I know will be replicated throughout our district in the coming weeks. 

Thanks for all that you do to support our students and families.  Have a great weekend!     


Best, David
