Happy New Year 2019

January 2019

Welcome back to the start of a new year and a new semester.  I hope all families, students, and staff had a restful and enjoyable winter break spending time with family and friends.  


Martha J. Eagle, Ed. D. Division Superintendent

We greet the new year with reflections of the past, anticipation of the future, and resolutions to be better people, to accomplish our goals or to make a difference. We may want to be kinder, more productive, or maybe just healthier.  Brad Paisley noted, “Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365-page book – write a good one!”  We begin this new year with such promise as we work to get things right.

The most important thing for us to collectively get right this year is preparing our children for the future.  It truly takes a village to raise up a child and I am so proud to be part of this wonderful village.  Each one of us has an integral role to play, whether parent, superintendent, administrator, teacher, board member, community member, faith-based leader, elected official, business leader or student.  This has to be a team mission!

The coming months promise to be exciting as we begin the third quarter, guide our students through course selections for next year, support our students in the many programs, activities, and athletic events, and get ready for all our awards and graduation ceremonies for the end of the year.  It all represents new beginnings and new opportunities for our students and for all of us as an educational team.  We are fortunate as a school division to celebrate successes and to work every day to assist students in achieving their goals.  I look forward to a wonderful second semester as we continue to Believe Beyond for our schools and for our students and keep high expectations and excellence in the classroom as our Number One priority! 

Yours in education,

Dr. Martha J. Eagle
