In my first year as Superintendent, I believe we have made great strides shaping the culture and placing greater emphasis on academics throughout our schools.  This would not be possible without all the hard work from our students and staff members with the support of their families and the community.

This year we will continue our efforts to ensure we are doing what is best for our students.  You will notice our calendar is slightly different than past years.  We will be having Late Starts and Early Outs.  The premise behind these activities is to allow staff members the time to collaborate with grade level and vertical teams, as well as further develop their skills to ensure we provide what is best for our students.  Buses will run at regularly scheduled times for late starts; however, students will be dismissed early on the four early out days with buses running at the Early Out dismissal time.  Students will not be able to congregate at the school during the Early Out times.  Activities will occur at their regularly scheduled times.

In addition to schedule changes, we are going to reestablish what it truly means to be a Trooper along with how we exhibit Trooper Pride.  We have established some simple, yet direct, expectations for not only our students but also all those who support us.  Troopers are respectful, accountable, and hardworking.

How do we demonstrate Trooper Pride?

  1. We respect others and ourselves!
  2. We are accountable for our actions!
  3. We work hard to achieve success!

Your continued support in these areas will be greatly appreciated.

My goals for the 2016-2017 school year are as follows:

  1. Continuing to ensure high expectations for all students!
  2. Identify academic areas of weakness based on data and develop and plan to remedy these areas of concern.
  3. Reestablish what it truly means to be a Trooper from Garrison Public Schools.

I look forward to another great year. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at: email or 701.463.2818
