Message from the Superintendent


A new school year signifies not only a fresh start but also an opportunity to continue the incredible journey of learning, growth, and development that we have all embarked upon together. The past few years brought its share of trials and tribulations, but it also reinforced our collective strength and resilience.  

To our dedicated and hardworking staff, I want to express my deepest gratitude for your unwavering commitment to our students. Your passion for education, creativity in teaching, and your unyielding support for our students are the cornerstones of our success. Your patience, adaptability, and tireless dedication have been truly inspiring, and I am confident that you will continue to make a profound difference in the lives of our students. 

To our remarkable students, I encourage you to approach this school year with curiosity, enthusiasm, and a willingness to learn from both your successes and challenges. Each day brings an opportunity to grow, to explore, and to discover your potential. Remember that you are not alone on this journey; our entire school community stands ready to support and guide you towards excellence. 

To our parents, guardians, and families, I extend my heartfelt appreciation for your ongoing support. Your active involvement and partnership in the education of our students is invaluable. Together, we create a nurturing and empowering environment where our students can thrive. 

As we commence the new academic year, we will continue to prioritize safety, well-being, and a high-quality education. We will work diligently to ensure that our students have access to the resources, opportunities, and support they need to succeed. 

In closing, I want to express my genuine optimism for the year ahead. The challenges we face may be great, but so too is our collective strength and determination. Together, as a united community, we can rise above any obstacle, create a positive and nurturing environment, and ensure a bright future for our students. 

I look forward to the amazing journey that awaits us and to the positive impact we will collectively make in the lives of our students. Welcome back to the Monroe County Intermediate School District and let us make this new school year a memorable and successful one.
