Dear ML School District Learning Community, 

I hope this message finds you and your loved ones in good health and high spirits. As we embark on another academic year, I wanted to take a moment to connect with all of you, our valued students, parents, teachers, staff, and community members.

First and foremost, I want to express my gratitude for the resilience, adaptability, and unwavering support you have demonstrated throughout the challenges of the past few years. Together, we navigated uncharted and unprecedented obstacles, displayed the strength of the community, and shared our commitment to the education and well-being of our students.

As we look ahead to the 2023-24 school year, I want to assure you that the safety and well-being of our students and staff remain top priorities. Our schools offer a safe environment for learning and our dedicated faculty and staff stand ready to provide high-quality instruction and support to meet the unique needs of each child.

As I think you would agree, our schools are comprised of more than just brick and mortar; they are the heart of our community, places where our children learn, grow, and develop the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in a rapidly changing world. We are committed to fostering a positive and inclusive learning environment where every student feels valued, respected, and empowered to reach their full potential.

To strengthen our partnership, I encourage open communication.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to your child's school or our district office. We are here to listen, collaborate, and work together to provide the best possible learning environment for our students.

The school year brings excitement about the opportunities and possibilities that only new beginnings can provide. Together, we will continue to supply a world-class education to our students and tirelessly support their social and emotional growth and well-being as individuals. 

Thank you again for your continued support of our mission.  I look forward to working closely with the Board of Education, faculty and staff, students, and community members to deliver meaningful learning experiences in a caring and supportive environment where each child has equal access and opportunity to achieve their fullest potential.
