Superintendent's 2017 Welcome Back Message

This message was sent to all employees on Monday, Aug. 7.

To all of our teachers and school employees, welcome back.

To all of you who are new to APS, welcome to the family.

To all of you who have worked through the summer, thanks for getting us ready for the 2017-18 school year.

It’s going to be a great year. I know that for a fact because I know the people who work in our schools and offices and kitchens, on our grounds and buildings and buses. People like you who are dedicated, who care, who believe.

I also know the students you serve. Good students who want to learn, who can learn if given the opportunity.

I know their families. They want what’s best for their children and will fight for what’s right. Who can blame them?

And I know this community which recognizes the importance of a good public education system.

We have a lot of work to do in the coming year, but I’m up for the challenge. I suspect you are, too.

That said, I won’t keep you. I know how busy these days before school starts can be.

I just wanted to say a quick hello and to let you know I believe in you and appreciate you.

Yes, it is going to be a very good year.
