What a year! Every school year begins with anticipation of a fresh start, a renewed commitment to embrace the demands that lie ahead and the prospect of reaching and even surpassing goals. The school year of 2013-2014 is no different. Buffeted by unanticipated changes, particularly at the beginning of the year, we remained steadfast and calibrated a stable course forward. We emerge from these challenges with restored vigor to advance District 86 on the ever-changing path of educational excellence.
As this year draws to a close, we celebrate the many academic, athletic and extracurricular accomplishments achieved by our many talented students. I am truly humbled by the efforts of the young men and women in our District and all the promise they have yet to realize on life’s journey.
With a new administrative team at the helm, we look forward to deploying this focused and capable group to serve our students. As our preparations begin in earnest for the 2014-2015 school year, we are grateful for the opportunity to work with such a dedicated faculty and staff and we move ahead on our mission educating the leaders of tomorrow. Enjoy the slower pace of summer. I look forward to seeing the entire D86 community again in August.
