The summer is winding down, and our attention turns to welcoming back students for another school year. I am looking forward to seeing the halls and classrooms bustling with students and teachers, abuzz with excitement and energy as old friends reconnect, and new friendships are formed. I hope your summer was good and relaxing, and that everyone is ready for a return to the fall routines.
As is true in any summer, transitions were made, as some faculty and staff retired or moved on and new educators have been hired in their place. I am truly appreciative to those that have served Triton students in the past, whether for a short period of time, or those that dedicated their entire career spanning decades to the betterment of our children. Detailed information will be coming out about new hires through your child(ren)’s school(s), but I am confident you will find that our newest recruits will show the same passion and dedication to your children that you’ve come to expect from Triton educators.
As I begin my first year as Superintendent, I wanted to express how thrilled I am to have been given the opportunity to serve your children in this new role. I am excited about the challenges and opportunities this coming year will present, and look forward to working to ensure that our students have the greatest opportunities for success in academics, artistic performance, and in athletic competition. Your children deserve our very best, and it is my commitment to ensure that is what they receive.
The final details are coming into place, as schedules and class lists have been shared, and bus routes have been posted online. The school year calendar was approved last spring, and I the final version can be found here. Students return on Tuesday, September 6th, with preschool programs starting the following week.
If there is ever a question I can answer, my door is always open. I look forward to the 2016/2017 school year, and wish you a wonderful final full week of summer next week.
