While every fall brings me a sense of excitement as we bring new students, staff, and families into the fold along with the joy of seeing all of our returning community members, this year brings me extra joy. At the end of last year, I had to take two months of leave for health reasons and so it is with extra appreciation that I return this summer.
And it is with a little more pep in my step and I hope all of ours – we are in our second year of a more unified campus, we have a new name, and we have a renewed emphasis on building our community and improving our communication.
We have already met multiple times with members of our parents’ association to collaborate on how we can bring back a greater sense of community to our campus and all of our experience. In the process, we decided to continue in our spirit of renaming things. And I love the result! The “Family Association of Montview”! The FAM!
So…to those of you coming for the first time this year and those of you that have been a part of this community for many years – Welcome to the FAM!
With that, the FAM, the staff, and I all welcome you and invite you to engage with us as we strive to create more than a school – a community. We aim to have the name DSST: Montview be synonymous with amazing results, amazing diversity, and an amazing spirit of belonging for everyone. To do that, we will need everyone.
