2012 - 13 School Year Ending:
Down to the final few days of school and almost time to end another school year. It is amazing how the years fly by and another senior class will walk through graduation and on out into the world. I would like to take this time to wish the Class of 2013 the best of luck in all of your future endeavors.
Each year, we tell a class goodbye as they finish their work here at Conway Springs High School. Each fall, we say hello to a new class starting their education years as they enter kindergarten in our district. Thirteen years to a young person seems like a long time. Parents tend to think that they have many, many years before their child will grow up and head off to college. As a parent who has a senior graduating this year, I can tell you that you really need to enjoy each year with your child. Those years do fly by and suddenly, they are headed off to college and your world changes.
I hope that all of our students enjoy their summer and have a fun and safe few months off. During this time, it is important for parents, especially with young students, to continue helping them with math and reading skills. Play some math games, read a book together, write a poem together - take time to do something fun that will help your child's brain continue to grow even in the summer months. Most of all, spend time with your student and enjoy them this summer.
This has been a fairly quiet year and I do hope we finish out the year on a quiet note. Parents, as always, I would like to thank you for your support of our school district. There is no perfect school and when we are dealing with students, there will always be issues that arise. However, most of the time here in Conway Springs we find a way to work things out. I do appreciate your efforts in helping make our school a better place.
Have a wonderful summer!!
