Just this past week, we celebrated the final graduation of 2019 with the summer graduates in Local District East. They exhibit the
needed to persevere and cross the finish line. I couldn't be more proud. Thank you to the families, teachers, principals, staff and community that stood beside and behind these graduates.
For our graduate pictured above, she and her child crossed that graduation stage together. It was a moment of deep emotion as we reflect on the hard work and persistence of the past school year. We are ready to do it all over again.
Administrators, principals and teachers are busy planning for 2019-2020. One thing remains certain - the commitment to 100% graduation and is alive and well in our schools and our communities.
Take a look at different ways that you can take advantage of the last days of summer! There are ways to continue the learning, even while schools are out of session. Enjoy! Rest! Recharge!
In the spirit of hope,
