Happy Holidays! I am so thankful to have the students, staff, and community as a partner in education, and without you, we could not do what we do. 

I’m taking this moment to express my appreciation for everyone’s hard work and support during the first portion of the 2019-20 school year. While I’m still relatively new to the Barnum Schools, I’ve already witnessed and been impressed by the exceptional degree of educational teamwork taking place daily in our schools. I’ve been inspired on many occasions by the commitment of our young people and their families.

As is the norm in an educational environment, we are faced with daily challenges and in each case, we will prevail. That’s one of the truest indicators of professional excellence, and it also testifies to the determination of our district staff, students, their parents and members of the community at large.

Happily, the first part of the 2019-20 school year has seen a great number of successes, from our music and arts programs, our staff efforts to improve their instructional methods, our athletic teams, and much more than I could list while keeping this message brief.

I thank you all for your collective enthusiasm and diligence, and on behalf of the Board of Education and Office Staff, we wish you the happiest of holiday seasons. Let’s all take some time during the break to reconnect with family and friends, and to re-energize. We’ve got a lot to do beginning in January and it’s going to be a very eventful year; because we have an excellent team here in Barnum — students, families, faculty, staff, and administration.
