Welcome Back and Happy School Year 21-22!
I wanted to take just a minute of your time and welcome you back to what is certain to be another year of excitement, challenges, opportunity and achievement for the Pacific West District, our military connected community, our families, yourself, and most of all our students.
Hopefully, you have had the opportunity to immerse yourself in experiences this summer that allowed you to rest, relax and rejuvenate. As our students emerge in our doorways and classrooms, they will be full of excitement, joy, anticipation, and maybe just a little apprehension, to be back with friends and adults that care about them. Most of all, they will be full of hope. Hope for their future. Fortified with the knowledge that their school will provide the resources, opportunity and relentless patience and encouragement to succeed, they will have hope. Our community is their hope for their future. We are their hope.
Through a narrowed focus on Actively Engaging our Students in the Mastery of College and Career Ready Standards and leveraging our currently established practices, we will intentionally provide students opportunities to engage by Differentiating Instruction, Monitoring Their Own Progress and experience Inquiry Based Learning.
I know that, together, we can identify our students’ needs, find strategies and interventions to help them understand and overcome challenges and succeed. We will work together to ensure all that we do is aligned to our goals and objectives, well-planned and intentional. Through patience and kindness to ourselves, each other, and most of all our students, we will create a safe space for students to take risks, grow their knowledge and skills, and ignite their love of learning.
I am so proud of the work we do for our students and the partnerships that make DoDEA Pacific West being the Best. I am proud to have the opportunity to work for and serve you.
