Call for input

I have had the great pleasure of serving the MidSun community over the past seven years.  In that time we have been able to implement daily physical activity and create a MidSun fitness room.  We have teamed up with Centennial High School to support learners with an innovative tutoring program. We have moved to a new outcomes based reporting system; we have changed our library to a learning commons. We have put a Smartboard in every core classroom and added a portable as we have grown in size.  We now have an annual Fine Arts and Complementary Subjects evening and a wonderful WordFest week. We have become more inclusive and respectful of diversity with the addition of two system classes of ACCESS and ALP learners. We have worked together with parents to see the creation of the MidSun Education Enhancement Society that has worked hard to get us extras like sewing machines, drill presses, books for our learning commons, chromebooks, author talks, and professional performances.  We now have a beautiful outdoor classroom and plenty of bike racks to encourage students to ride to school.  I am very proud of the way our staff have implemented technology like Iris, an online student portfolio tool, and our new 3D printer.  We continue to be innovative in our desire to make learning relevant and engaging to our learners.

And now it is time for me to move on.  My last day at MidSun School will be December 18, 2015.  Our director will be hiring a new principal shortly and is seeking input from you about the qualities and skills you would like to see in your next principal as MidSun meets upcoming challenges.  Please consider taking  a few moments to fill out this survey:

I know there are many more exciting things in MidSun's future and I am proud to have had the opportunity to work with an amazing community, staff and students.

Take Care Lakers!
