A Message from the Superintendent

This summer I had the opportunity to travel to South Africa and participate in the Comrades Marathon, which is a 56 mile running race between the South African cities of Pietermaritzburg and Durban. As you might expect, the race was grueling and provided many opportunities for self-reflection (In particular, why I might be so foolish as to even enter a such a race!). Despite wanting to quit about a dozen times, I persevered and somehow finished under the 12 hour time limit. 

During our beginning of the year convocation, I shared some of my experiences in the race as they related to our District Core Values:

  • We deal in hope;
  • We, not me;
  • We do things on purpose;
  • Change happens. Be prepared to pivot.

Over the course of the last several years, we have been able to accomplish much in our district. As we move forward with even more ambitious goals, we are working to keep these core values in mind to ensure the concept of #londonpossible is available to all. 

As always, if there exists, anything I can do for you or your child, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

Best wishes on a great school year!
