    Dear Sedro-Woolley Students, Families, and Staff:

    The excitement and energy in our buildings continues to be a highlight of my days as we continue to hope for a return to normalcy. We all look forward to the days when we can see our students’ smiling faces and don’t have to worry about more than your typical school-day activities. 

    We are so appreciative of our community for adhering to state-mandated health and safety measures so that we can continue in-person learning. We recognize that there are many points of view about these protocols and are thankful we have been able to come together as a community around a common goal - student learning. We also recognize that for some of our families, virtual learning is more an appropriate choice for their students at this time. Our Sedro-Woolley Virtual Learning Academy staff is committed to providing quality instruction to our virtual students.

    I continue to engage with various stakeholders in the district and throughout the community to learn about established traditions and practices as stated in my entry plan. I am grateful for the opportunity to visit classrooms, ride our school buses, help out in the cafeteria, and immerse myself in the Sedro-Woolley community. As I learn more about the needs of our students, it is evident to me that exploring the possibilities of bringing back music and art at the elementary school level is highly important

    To keep communication lines open, we have implemented weekly family newsletters that focus on providing not only pertinent information to our families and staff, but also shows the multiple ways our students are learning and growing inside the four walls of their school buildings. 

    As a district, we are committed to providing all our students with engaging and rigorous learning experiences in a safe and supportive learning environment. We will build on the lessons we learned from the past year and celebrate the resiliency that sustained us through such a trying time.

    I truly am looking forward to working with all of you for many years to come. 

    Please do not hesitate to reach out. I would love to hear from you, hear your story, and hear about what matters to you.
