I always begin my internal emails with the word TEAM.  I thought a lot this past semester about what the word team means:  “A team is a group of people linked in a common purpose. Human teams are especially appropriate for conducting tasks that are high in complexity and have many interdependent subtasks.”  I have come to the conclusion that a TEAM is not just the employees inside the organization of education.  Often, I have spoken about the three key pieces involved in the education of our students.  The first is the student who is a lifelong learner; the second is the teacher who arrives at school prepared to instill the engagement of learning in all students; and the final group of people involved in the education of students is you, the parent. 

I appreciate your involvement in the lives of your child.  My daughter just gave birth to her first baby on October 23rd.  She has spent time learning about her new son and what is involved in motherhood with the realization that her life will forever be different.  Her and her husband’s responsibilities increased with this new human being.  I watch as Kelsey reads and talks to him even at a month old.  Simple words are shared with him as the hours pass by.

I believe that the learning process should involve reading, writing, speaking and listening every day in every classroom.  As a parent, conversations involving your students in the inquisitive nature of life will change their ability to learn.  As we enter into a season of holidays with a break from school, I encourage each of you to continue in the learning process with your student(s).

With the November election, we are welcoming four new Board Members to Weld Re-8:  Kehle Griego, Matthew Adame, Michelle Bettger, and Ryan Williams.  Heather Taylor was reelected and will continue with Carol McDermott and Susan Browne.  We had three days together in early December with time spent developing transparent, trusting relationships and educating one another on the Board Regulations.  I am excited to welcome our four new members and excited to continue our work together as a team serving the students, parents, and community of Weld Re-8.  The December 11, 2017 Board Meeting will take place at the District Administration Building at 6:00 PM.  We will begin the agenda with the Certification of Votes from the election and the Oath of Office for the November-elected Board Members.  Immediately following this Oath, we will enter into a reorganization of the Board with discussion and a vote.  By State Statute, we will elect a Board President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.  The Board Members only cast votes in this process.

Finally, I wish each of you a wonderful Holiday Season with family and friends. I faithfully remain full of HOPE for our students. 

I am honored and humbled to be your Superintendent.
