September 2018 Superintendent Newsletter
Dear USD #416 Wildcat Family,
As we enter our first full month of school, I hope each student and family has had an enjoyable start to the 2018-2019 school year! As I have visited the schools, I have seen many positive indications that this is going to be a great school year! If there is an early concern by you or your child, I encourage you to make early contact with the school so the concern can be addressed. Please do not wait until parent-teacher conferences in October to address a concern that needs to be addressed now.
September will bring many activities in each of the buildings. It is always exciting to see students perform outside of the classrooms. We have great community support for all of our student activities. The students do their very best to represent our community when participating in an activity. If you have time, please strive to come support our students in the variety of activities that they will be participating in throughout the year.
We continue to put a major emphasis on school safety. Although all of the door armor plates have been installed on all classroom doors, there are many doors that have not been sponsored. If you, your family, or business would like to “adopt a door”, please see the article on the front page of our website to support our school safety initiative. We want to make sure our schools are as safe as we can possibly make them for each student and staff member throughout the year.
I hope families were able to enjoy the Labor Day Weekend festivities. I was able to be out at the cemetery when the 100 year time capsule was unveiled. It will be an exciting time for students and families to place items from 2018 in the 150 year time capsule. We have a great community that has been a strong supporter of education and learning for 150 years…..your continued support is always appreciated!
