Principal's Monthly Message
Welcome back to school for our first days in 2015! When I was a kid I loved the Back to The Future Movies and the thought of being able to travel through time like Marty does in the show. As the New Year arrived, I saw on the news that Back to The Future II (when Marty travel to his own future) was set in the year2015. I remember going to that show as a kid and thinking of how cool the sneakers were that tied themselves, the flying cars and skateboards that hovered above the sidewalks. While we aren’t living in that 2015, we are living in a 2015 that is very different from the world where I grew up.
To me many of the changes that have happened have me wishing for the past world that I grew up in. There are things that are happening that are pushing us forward and have us striving to do better. One of these things is greater accountability for our schools. While the measures and the manner of going about structuring the accountability of schools has me shaking my head most of the time, the underling goal of always striving for what is better is something I completely agree with.
Last month school grades were released across Utah for each publicly funded school. These grades were reviewed by each school in the Logan City School District and examined by our faculties to identify what we did well and what we can do better. I was impressed by the things we had accomplished last year and I am excited for what we will accomplish this year. I wish you could all be in the meetings that I get to be in with the teachers here a tour school. You would hear the concerns, celebrations and amazing ideas they come up with to enrich and engage your students each day. With as many students as we have and with such a broad range of backgrounds, our school has been very successful and will continue to be successful as we are all challenged to achieve a higher standard. I would like to invite you to take a look at the school grades at:
Under the accountability column you may click and look at the different reports, the one that I think is the most straight forward is the report called ‘School Grading’. Take a look at Woodruff and take a look at the other education options that you see neighbors, friends or relatives participating in. I am confident that you will see that Woodruff is the best choice for your child’s education. As ever if you have any questions or concerns let me know.
Thanks and Happy New Year, Mr. Holmgren
