Celebrating Successes

April 14, 2010

Cross posted from Superintendent’s Blog

Coming into this position I knew it would be challenging.  Many staff and community members have asked me if I “like” my job as superintendent.  My response has been being a superintendent is the best and worst job in a school district – often in the same day.  Last week, I heard that one of our 7th grade students, Jacob Tanner, took first place in the state Geographic Bee competition and will go on to compete in the National Geographic Bee in Washington D.C. in May.  In the same time span, I was also preparing to notify 63 faculty members that due to the financial condition of the district we are not sure we will be able to offer them employment for the 2010-2011 school year.
It’s hard to look at the educational landscape in Michigan and across the nation and not feel uncomfortable and even somewhat depressed.  We are facing historic shifts in funding, along with the ever changing State and Federal mandates.  However, even in this unstable environment there are tremendous successes being accomplished by our students and staff.  I encourage the community to remember and celebrate these achievements.
During the next several weeks there will be classroom performances, concerts, sporting events, and numerous other student and classroom activities for the parents, families and friends to witness.On June 6th, at 6:00 pm we will have the privilege of celebrating the graduation of the Saline High School Class of 2010.  Come share in these Saline Area School special events.,
