Dear Spartanburg District One Students, Parents, Families, and Communities:
As the 2014-2015 school year draws to an end, I reflect in admiration and respect on the work that has been done by our students, teachers, administrators, staff, parents, and community in making our mission of "a quality student-centered education” a reality. Because of our combined efforts, the commitment to excellence and our sense of dedication, our students continue to achieve success. I applaud you for making selfless contributions throughout the school year. Together, we have prepared our students with a strong foundation of skills and knowledge to succeed in their educational pursuits.
It is at times such as this that we take the opportunity to pause and reflect on the wonderful efforts and achievements of our students over the past year. The rich fabric of opportunities for students in our schools and the collective efforts of everyone involved to help students access these opportunities are truly commendable. Service projects, performance events, field trips, college visits, athletic events, art festivals, academic awards, summer camps, celebrations, and the list of other events, too long to mention, are what makes our district so unique and exceptional. I would like to address all of the outstanding groups who have made this school year so extraordinary.
