As in years past, the November School Board Meeting has been cancelled due to the TSBA Conference. The December Board Meeting has been rescheduled for December 1, 2015, at 7:30 p.m., at the Grainger County Board of Education Central Office.
The early morning cool in the air reminds me every year that autumn has arrived. With the official changing of the season, I’m also reminded that school is well underway and, in fact, students and personnel will soon be able to mark 1/2 of the school year as completed.
I would like to thank parents for their active participation so far this school year and to remind you that your encouragement and involvement is crucial to your student’s success. I hope you were able to meet with your student’s teacher at Parent/Teacher Conference, to discuss the progress of the school year thus far and to plan how you and the school can continue to work together to make the 2015-2016 school year as successful as possible.
As always, I am honored to be working in a community surrounded by individuals - parents, students, teachers, administrators, school board members, etc. - who realize the value of a solid investment in our children. Our decisions today will affect our community tomorrow. Together, we will work to allow educators to TEACH with rigor and relevance so that students will LEARN the skills and knowledge needed to SUCCEED in becoming community, college, and career ready.
Director of Schools
