It’s back to school for many in our community and I want to send a warm welcome to every one of you.
To the county’s teachers, administrators, education assistants, child and youth workers, secretaries, custodians, bus drivers, crossing guards, librarians, volunteers, and everyone else in our community who spends endless hours giving back to our students, thank you for doing what you do.
I want to welcome our new Director of Education, Sean Monteith. His mandate of “all students first”is embedded in every decision he makes. Sean’s pretty great and ready to understand the county’s opportunities and challenges.
I’m excited for you all to get to know him and to find the same inspiration from Sean that I find each time we talk.
To our students, welcome! I’m excited about what is ahead for you this year, and I want to tell you that I’m proud of you. You’re today’s leaders and the reason why so many in our community choose to do what we do. Each adult you interact with during your day is here to support you and learn from you.
Let us know how we can best support you.
Best of luck to everyone on what I know will be an incredible school year.
