Dear Topeka Public School District Families and Staff:
Welcome to the 2016-17 school year! This serves as our first of many community newsletters. This is also my first year as part of the TPS family and I am excited to meet you in our schools. As part of our work in building relationships and in keeping staff and families as informed as possible about the many great things occurring, the community newsletter will be sent twice monthly. This first newsletter is filled with some of the beginning of the school year information that may be helpful to know. To learn more about individual schools, your school leaders, and ways you can be involved, we encourage you to explore our web site. A new web page will launch on August 1 and will allow our ELL families to have the web page language translated with one click of a button. In my 23 years in education, most of which have been as superintendent, I have learned that great communication makes a tremendous difference in ensuring all students succeed at high levels.
We thank Dr. Ford for her commitment to TPS and we are looking forward to building on to the foundation already in place for the future. Thank you for supporting the children of Topeka Public Schools. We are looking forward to an exciting 2016-17 school year as we work together to serve Students First as a team working for continuous improvement.
