Dear Valued Community Member,
Time is rapidly approaching when we, as a team, will have what I consider an awesome opportunity – that of using our vast skills to meet the needs of our students as we begin the 2016-2017 school year. Hopefully, the time spent away from the classroom was pleasant, without great stress and time well-spent with family and friends.
We take assessments and standardized tests seriously, but we know they are just one measure of success. We demand rigor in the classroom, but know that quality co-curricular and extra-curricular activities complement and increase classroom success. We know that students will stumble, but with extra help can regain their footing and be successful. A quality education is one that allows persons to have choices as they graduate from high school and know that whatever that choice is, they will be well-prepared for success.
All adults, we hope, are aware of how we channel our efforts, plan with thought and execute goals and objectives with precision. We are concerned with dealing with daily needs. We are concerned with annual demands. BUT…we are constantly exerting effort, with care and guidance, that will result in our youngsters gaining what we are offering and hoping for the “best finished, polished product” as we issue diplomas upon successful completion of all requirements. My trust in all staff is complete and unquestioned.
Your Board of Education and administrative team are confident that the 2016-2017 school year will be a productive one. Dedication will be obvious as one notices grateful community reactions. We put “our product on display” on a daily basis. We welcome you to be part of our schools and events. We welcome new families to attend events and experience Cardinal Pride. Let’s vow…work together to continue our tradition as evident in Canfield.
Thank you for your efforts in being significant contributors to the “Canfield Educational Tradition!”
