Happy New Year!
A new year brings new attention to the things in our lives that are important to us. This year, I want to remind everyone to take a step back and think about what they are doing and why they are doing it. We all get so busy that we forget just why we became educators and parents. Our decisions should work toward the betterment of our students or children. The Midview community continues to impress me with this exact mindset and I couldn't be more proud of how hard our teachers are working together to improve instruction by focusing on higher-order thinking skills and challenging our students.
Without the support of our classified staff, our students and staff wouldn't have safe and warm environments in which to learn. Additionally, our administrative team is doing an amazing job connecting families to our schools and supporting our staff as they work to engage all students in learning. Their help in removing barriers to education assists our teachers in providing more engaging and challenging lessons to students every day, preparing them for colleges, careers and beyond.
We still have a lot of work to do, but with the continued support of our Board of Education, parents, and community, I know we will continue to do great things. We share a common goal of working to improve instruction and experiences for students, and there are not too many organizations that do it as effectively and passionately as Midview. We are all dedicated to our students, and I am proud to be a part of such an amazing team.
Expect more to achieve more.
Dr. Bruce Willingham, Superintendent
