As we near the end of another school year, I want to personally thank each of you for your role in the development and encouragement of our students. As I look back on this school year, there were significant challenges that we have had to overcome. Yet, whether in the classroom or in the office, we have worked together to find success. There are far too many accomplishments from each school to individually list. However, we hear about your successes everyday and applaud your efforts.
I recently received a letter from grateful parents of a junior high student who transferred to a Granite school this year and found success in his math class after struggling with the subject for several years. Two proud parents in West Valley saw their fifth child graduate from Hunter High School this year. Their first graduated in 1996. Additionally, a member of the community recently wrote how thankful he was for a pen pal project that paired a fourth grade class with senior citizens.
Each patron understood and recognized that the success of students is reflective of the hard work put in by Granite faculty and staff.
Please remember that the district is here to work with you to the benefit of children, and we continue to appreciate your input and suggestions on how we can improve our service.
While some of your schools are still in session throughout the summer months, I want to wish each of you an enjoyable summer vacation.
