American Education Week

Last week Americans paused to give a well deserved thank you to all our veterans that served in our armed forces.  We cannot thank them enough for the sacrifice and dedication to their country.

As Superintendent, I would like to recognize another group of individuals that impact our world by serving our children.

November 16-20 is designated as "American Education Week." This week offers a special opportunity for Americans to honor individuals making a difference in our country through education.

In the School District of Janesville, we are privileged to acknowledge our staff for the quality education they continue to provide. We truly value our teachers and staff and want to pause to thank you for all you do for our students each and every day.  I appreciate your partnership on this "Journey to Excellence."  Thank you for focusing on student achievement, even during moments that are challenging. I am truly grateful.

We will be recognizing a few of our many outstanding employees who have significantly impacted students, classrooms, colleagues, or buildings across the district on December 2, 2015.  We are privileged to have them part of the School District of Janesville team! A reception in their honor will take place on Wednesday, December 2, 2015, at the Pontiac Convention Center.
