Dear Alta Public Schools Familia,
It is with great excitement that I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year! We are very humbled and honored that you have chosen to entrust us with your most precious assets, your children. It is a great responsibility you have given Alta Public Schools (APS), and we intend to meet and surpass your expectations.
At APS, we believe in a working partnership with our families. It is critical for you to feel welcomed and know that we appreciate your involvement. There are many opportunities for you to become active in your child’s education. You can serve on the School Site Council at your child’s school, you can also provide input about out program at our regularly scheduled parent coffees, and you can also volunteer your time. We value the role that you play in partnering with APS to ensure that your children receive the best quality care and education a school system can provide.
For this year, as your new Superintendent, my goals are to build relationships, provide a world-class education, and continue to focus on every student’s growth in academic and social success. Updates regarding these priorities will be made available on a regular basis during the Superintendent Meetings which are scheduled the third Thursday of each month. Please make it a priority to come and share the successes and feedback so we can make APS the schools of choice.
As we continue to grow and build our relationship, my hope is that you will feel confident in our ability to meet the needs of your children. I want to reach the point when you can say to another family, “My student is receiving a world-class education at Alta Public Schools; you should check them out!” Thank you for trusting us with your children and being our partners! Remember, “Every day is a GREAT day to be an Alta Public Schools Lion!”
