Summer 2016 UPDATE

By: Dr. Van Riley, Superintendent

As we enter another summer break, I want to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful staff members for their dedication to student success. As a community, we should be very proud of the commitment we see every day from teachers, paraprofessionals and all other support staff members. Recently a parent, Linda Lloyd, shared a story about her experience at one of our schools. I know this same feeling is felt by many parents and students at all of our schools. Linda shares the following:

As another school year ends, I am getting emotional. Not just because my son is another year older, but also I’m reflecting on how lucky we are to have him at West Vine Street School.

Before Henry entered the public school system, I was a little worried. He has a speech disorder and a complicated medical condition. I wondered if they could handle his seizures while maintaining an appropriate educational plan.

I can say the staff has far exceeded every expectation, every year. They are proactive in addressing his changing educational and medical needs, and at the same time, they are creative in finding ways to foster his independence. I am beyond grateful for the wonderful teachers, paraprofessionals, nurses, therapists, and administrative staff who care for Henry everyday as if he were their own. They have supported our family in school and out during an incredibly difficult year.

So just like every June, I face the same dilemma. How to sufficiently acknowledge them? How to say goodbye to some people who have so clearly helped shape my son? Gift cards and presents just don’t seem like enough. So I share my gratitude with all of you and together we can recognize this wonderful school.
