Parents and Guardians,

    Welcome to the 2018-19 school year! I am humbled and honored to serve as your superintendent of public schools. What a privilege it is to serve as an educator today! We currently, face some of the most difficult times in the history of public education but the challenges of today are what makes this work most rewarding. Now more than ever our
    students need to be surrounded by caring, compassionate, and competent adults who will challenge, encourage, help and nurture them along their public school journey to

    We, in Person County, have a rich history filled with tradition and fond memories of the past. Most notable is a shared pride for our students, schools, and communities.
    Our citizens possess a keen understanding of how a quality education coupled with high expectations for each student affords the opportunity for greatness in careers, college, and life. When a community is united in its commitment to the education of its young people, great things can be achieved.

    In 2017-18, our school district embarked upon a strategic visioning process that resulted in a comprehensive PCS22 improvement plan. Through this strategic planning
    the process, our Board of Education members have challenged the staff to have a deep commitment to helping every student become all he or she is capable of being.
    In order to lay the footing for a successful school year, it is important that you review the information contained within the Parent Gazette. Please share and stress what is
    applicable to each student in your home.

    Keep this Gazette for your future reference throughout what we hope will be a very successful school year for us all. Thank you for entrusting us with your most prized
    possession, your student. The foundation for learning begins in each home. Please allow us the opportunity to team or partner with you as we seek to place each student
    in a position to be successful. I extend my best wishes to you and your student for a great 2018-19 school year.
