We are quickly approaching the end of our summer break! August 24 is right around the corner. We are excited to welcome students and staff back on campus later this month!
Hopefully, you have been making time for a healthy dose of summer reading. A good book can help you learn something new or simply put a smile on your face. I have used books this summer to
expand my thinking relating to leading teams and building high functioning systems. While these topics may not sound exciting to an elementary student, I LOVE them. I also hope you have been able
to spend quality time with family and friends doing things that make you laugh. Laughter is a great
way to recharge your spirit. We have made our way to Lake Michigan on several occasions this
summer. It has been a refreshing way to beat the heat in West Michigan.
The activity level around campus remains high between summer learning, building preparation for
next year, camps, and bond construction projects. Contractors with their heavy equipment continue
to work hard on large-scale projects at the high school, Cedar View, and Red Hawk. Thankfully, all major projects are in their final phases of completion. We also have teams wrapping up painting projects and last-minute cleaning to get classrooms ready in each of our schools. Lastly, our teachers and administrators are back on campus in preparation for the new school year.
Your Red Hawk team is working hard this summer to put the finishing touches on improvements across campus to be ready to welcome students back on August 24! We will be ready!
We can. We will. We are. TOGETHER!
With respect and gratitude,
Scott B. Smith, Superintendent
