    Over the past week and a half, I've had the opportunity to visit all three schools. It gives me great pride to see students and staff actively engaged in learning through discussions, group work, independent work, and labs, as well as engaged in conversation about their academic and personal goals. Thank you to all who welcomed me to see first-hand the great work that is done each day in our schools. You truly make me D230Proud!

    Empowering students to follow their passion is a hallmark of the work we do here in District 230.

    Welcome to 2020!

    As we begin a new semester, year, decade, let's reflect on the commitment we made at our Fall Institute Day to what it means to be D230 Proud. As you will recall, our colleagues shared these ten​e​ts when we began the school year and we pledged to uphold them by signing the D230 Proud banners.

    Educators are Superheroes. It was an honor to stop by new teacher meetings at Andrew and Sandburg this week to talk with our not yet tenured teachers about their experiences. I met with Stagg's new teachers earlier this semester. The enthusiasm and passion of first through fourth-year teachers was evident in the meeting with administrators and mentors in the buildings for professional development and moral support.

    Opportunities abound. This week I met with my combined Student Advisory from all three schools. We had a great discussion that centered on the notion that ability is nothing without opportunity which has been attributed to both Napoleon Bonaparte and Lucille Ball.

    I am #D230Proud that our students and staff put great effort into honoring the brave individuals who serve our country in the military. Veterans Luncheons have a long tradition in District 230 as we recognize the commitment and sacrifice that service members make in order to protect our freedoms.

    Today, we are releasing episode 2 of the #D230Proud Video Series: Say Something. In this episode, Sandburg Special Education Director Kristyn Koss, Stagg Head Dean Mary Pat Carr, and Andrew Associate Principal Brian Nolan share useful information and tips for parents regarding school safety. I am grateful for the dedication of our school staff to providing prevention education, building strong relationships, and collaborating with community partners to ensure our schools are safe for learning.

    At the School Board meeting last night, we had the opportunity to honor some of the excellent work our teachers do each day. It was a pleasure to celebrate the accomplishments of two Stagg High School teachers - Special Olympics Region E Coach of the Year Abby Degliomini and Illinois Latin Teacher of the Year Anna Reiff. Their passion for their students and for continuously seeking ways to grow as educators are to be commended!

    As a high school educator for 35 years and a father of three, I know firsthand the challenges parents and guardians can face in raising teenagers. I also know it is empowering to have access to information and practical tips from experts and those who have faced these same challenges while raising and educating teens.
