Superintendent's Welcome Back Message

Reported by janet_buglio@ipsd.org on 8/23/17

Dear District 204 Community,

The start of each new school year brings an incredible sense of excitement. I can't wait to see our students enter their classrooms tomorrow, eager to begin this year's educational journey.

The video below provides a glimpse of how our staff spent time this summer preparing for the school year. A big part of their work focused on how to improve teaching through using technology to enhance learning. You can search #FutureReady204 on Twitter to see how teachers are using new resources to best prepare students. Those resources include Chromebooks, which have been distributed to all our middle and high school students.

Of course, the biggest impact to student learning does not come from handing a student a computer. It comes from the meaningful connections our students make with teachers, coaches, and other staff members who serve as mentors in the classroom and throughout the countless extra-curricular activities our students pursue. This week I had the opportunity to talk with our staff as they prepared for the arrival of our students. I am confident they are excited to help our students achieve their greatest potential.

In addition to eager students and dedicated staff, I'm grateful for all the support we receive from our parents and community. Your support makes our work possible.

I look forward to all the amazing things our students will accomplish. Have a great year!

Karen Sullivan
Superintendent
