Summer Message 2012
Another school year is in the books! As we enter into summer I want to wish our 2011 graduates best wishes as they pursue their different paths for the future. In addition, our Boy’s and Girl’s Track team surpassed all expectations sending a record 12 to the state tournament. Go Wildcats…we are proud of YOU!!
Reflecting on my first year, three things I think went well include:
• The levy of course!!! With the passing of our renewal levy we can not only maintain our current financial status, we can also upgrade technology to allow us to provide 1:1 computing for grades 5-12. For K-4 there will be better access and more technology throughout Walker.
• Negotiating our CLEA and CLCA contracts!! Negotiating early allowed us to have fair contracts that acknowledged the work of certified and classified staff.
• Nifty Fifty! I love seeing a focus on health/fitness and reading. There were pockets of excitement and I saw evidence of decisions about snacks and movement made as a result of Nifty Fifty. I hope this continues to grow and we can realize the vision of one day being the healthiest community in Ohio.
As we begin to plan for next school year, I want you to know that we believe the educational programs and opportunities in Canton Local are among the best in the state of Ohio! I cannot wait to unveil our plans for next year in our next edition of Inside Canton Local Schools!
I’ll close by thanking each of you for your support to make our district a great place to be. There hasn’t been a day of my first year as Superintendent that I haven’t been amazed at the high expectations, the caring, and the ability of folks to do the right thing always for our children and community. I will continue to believe in “The Power of US!”
Have a wonderful summer!
