“Education is not preparation for life; it is life itself. “
The staff and I are eager to provide the best education possible for our students. During a recent school board meeting, I touch on three different themes to improve the school experience for our students:
- Make our school a destination for our students; that all students have something they like about coming to school in addition to academics. For example at the middle school we’re bringing back Fun Fridays once a month to encourage students who turn in their homework and behave well at school to keep up the good work.
- Motivate students in the short-term goals such as turning in assignments on time, becoming more professional in their behavior within the classroom and developing a positive work ethic.
- Improve our facilities to ensure our school continues to be a safe and cheerful place for our students.
I encourage you to get involve with our new parent group, Arena Boosters Club (ABC). The booster club is looking for ways to enhance the educational and extracurricular experience for the students by funding different projects. This year’s focus has been to increase student access to technology. Look for volunteer opportunities for our Independence Day Picnic on July 2nd at Bower Park.
We value your input and welcome all parents to come to our school. Please come to see all the exciting things your children are learning.
