A message from Assistant Superintendent Jane Ann Kammeyer:
It always amazes me how all of a sudden it is the last quarter of school. As this school year end quickly comes upon us, I wanted to take a minute to thank the many wonderful parents, tea
chers, principals and support staff that touch the lives of children every day. We live in a wonderful community of caring people and our children are precious to us. I love the saying that hangs on the wall of my office, it says, "Children are always the only future the human race has; teach them well."
We know that parents are the first teachers in a child’s life and that continues throughout a lifetime. I have always appreciated the partnership we are fortunate to have with parents in the process of educating their children.
Teachers, counselors, administrators, and support staff you have a profound impact on students every day. Albert Einstein said, "It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge." Thank you for making each day a treasure for your students as you "awaken the joy" of discovery and learning.
Over the last 34 years, I have held many titles teacher, principal, director, and assistant superintendent. When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them I am an educator. It has been a privilege to associate over the years with so many wonderful educators and be in the business of educating children. In the world of education there are truly amazing caring people. I want to thank you again for what you do for students every day and I know that you will continue to "teach them well."
