Superintendent’s Message

Dear Hornets,

Welcome back to another exciting school year! Entering my sixth year as your School Superintendent, it is my honor and pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all of you. I hope this letter finds you rejuvenated and ready to embark on a journey of knowledge, growth, and success.

To our awesome students, you are the heartbeat of our educational community. Your enthusiasm, curiosity, and determination inspire us every day. We are committed to providing you with a safe, inclusive, and stimulating environment where you can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. This year, we encourage you to embrace new challenges, explore your passions, and make the most of every opportunity that comes your way. Remember, each day is a chance to learn, grow, and make a positive impact on the world around you.

To our dedicated teachers, you are the foundation of our school. Your expertise, passion, and unwavering commitment to education are truly remarkable. Your tireless efforts in shaping young minds and nurturing their potential are deeply appreciated. As we embark on this new academic year, let us continue to foster a culture of collaboration, innovation, and lifelong learning. Your dedication to excellence sets the stage for our students' success, and I am confident that together, we will create an exceptional learning experience for all.

To our supportive parents, you play an integral role in the education of your children. Your involvement, encouragement, and partnership are invaluable. We recognize the trust you have placed in us and assure you that we will do everything in our power to provide your child with the best education possible. We encourage you to maintain open lines of communication with us, stay engaged in your child's education, and take advantage of the resources and opportunities we offer. Together, we can empower our students to reach their fullest potential.

As we embark on this new school year, let us embrace the spirit of resilience and adaptability that has defined our recent times. We understand the challenges that may lie ahead, but we are confident in our ability to overcome them together. Our school community is built on a foundation of strength, unity, and compassion, and I have no doubt that we will emerge stronger and more united than ever before.

I look forward to witnessing the achievements and growth of each and every one of you. Let us make this academic year a memorable and transformative experience. On behalf of the entire school administration, faculty, and staff, welcome back! Together, let us empower and inspire all learners to achieve.

Cook County Schools take pride in the educational opportunities we are able to provide for our children. Our teachers and staff members work very hard to meet the needs of all students to ensure academic success. We have evidence that students are learning and making good progress, and we consider this to be an important indicator of success. An important part of our success is parent participation and support in developing activities to improve student achievement. We hope that as a parent/guardian, you will become involved in our school improvement initiatives as we continue to monitor student achievement and set high expectations. If you are interested in participating in developing our school improvement initiatives so we can continue to excel, contact your child’s school.
