Dedicated to excellence in education
From the Superintendent's Desk
Dear School Community Members,
November has been a busy month here at Roy-Hart. Our sports tryouts are completed and the regular season is upon our winter sports teams. The musical cast has been determined and rehearsals will begin soon. Many of our musicians have competed and performed as part of the Area All-State, and our winter concerts are taking place each of the next several weeks. As we enter the final month of 2019, I am reminded of the many exciting weeks ahead. I encourage all members of the community to come out and enjoy a sporting, musical or choral event. I think you will find our student body simply amazing.
As I reflect on my more than 30 years in education, I have found the time between Thanksgiving and the winter recess to often be stressful on our children, families and staff. What ought to be the most joyous time of year sometimes is just the opposite. I have observed over the years members of school communities thinking about the loved ones who have passed, the limitations on their ability to gift others, and challenges they may be facing in their lives. My recommendation to the community is to always look to support one another through the next month. Be there to listen and, when possible, share your talents, time and treasures.
There are many great things taking place in our schools. I continue to be amazed at the gifted staff that we have that teach, support, maintain our buildings and make certain we have a safe and positive learning environment. I am so grateful to be part of such a terrific District and look forward to great things to come!
As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out and say hello when you see me around the schools and town, or follow me on Twitter @DrStopinski
