In this update, I hope you are all able to take a deep breath and congratulate yourselves on the phenomenal work you have all done for our children, especially these past three months!
Yes, you just made it through three months of some of the toughest days as an educator that you have probably ever experienced!
Tomorrow was slated to be the last day of school for our students, and graduation to be held on Saturday. Graduation is still on!!!! We hope you will follow the live Facebook feed for graduation on Saturday beginning with Lewisville High School graduation at 8:30 AM. Great Falls High is next at 11:30, and Chester Senior High will be at 1:30 PM. We have worked to ensure that this is as special as the Class of 2020!
You may already know this, but wanted to announce that your new Superintendent has been selected, and he is Dr. Antwon Sutton. I know you will welcome him as you did me. He has an outstanding reputation and is enthusiastic about getting started July 1, 2020. The school board made an excellent choice!
I know this has been difficult for you all, but there is really a lot of good that has come out of this crisis. We have truly pulled together as a district family and as a community to look out for and take care of each other during this pandemic. Thank you for that.
In my 4 and 1/2 years here, I can tell you that this group of educators and support staff stack up among the best in the nation in my opinion. I have so enjoyed working with you all as your Superintendent during this time. This is bittersweet for me, but you are in good hands with Dr. Sutton, the school board, your senior team and principals. Thank you for being the fine group of educators that you are.
Please take care of yourselves! We need you all back next year!
