The 2012-13 school year is quickly coming to an end. It has been a pleasure to get to know the many hardworking and committed employees of the Rio School District as well as the many amazing students and families who are so talented and aspiring. It has also been my pleasure to make contributions to a long term process that is bringing 21st century education to Rio students by becoming a "world class" learning organization. This past week at our Inspirational student awards, our Rio Olympic games, and our 1st annual music festival, I had the opportunity to experience students and employees at their best.. This past week I also had the chance to spend time working on poetry with three 8th grade classes at Rio Del Valle middle school. Students in these classes wrote some amazing poems and I am sure they will soon find success in ninth grade as they move onto the high school level.
