The Journey continues. This coming school year will begin soon and we look forward to the return of teachers and staff preparing our campus and classrooms for learning. The Mission of Mt. Adams School District is “Continuous Student Learning.” Our goal is to provide an excellent learning experience for every student… every day!
Part of a student’s journey is in and through the many doors of the school house, the pages of books, lunches in the cafeteria, and through the goal posts or over the nets in athletic events. And, the journey is so much more including the friends, relationships, conversations, and social interactions with peers, close friends, and other members of our learning community. Through these social and emotional interactions, I call upon the words of a famous Lakota Chief, Luther Standing Bear, who wrote, “Out of the Indian approach to life there came a great freedom, an intense and absorbing respect for life, enriching faith in a Supreme Power and principles of truth, honesty, generosity, equity, and brotherhood as a guide to mundane relations.”
As we embark on the 2019/20 school year, my hope and prayer is that we all choose to walk in that truth, honesty, generosity, equity, and fellowship as we continue this journey that we call the Mt. Adams School District. We are all a vital and integral part of our work as we prepare the next generation of leaders to serve our community, state, nation, and world.
Best Wishes for a successful and productive school year!
