August 11, 2017--Welcome to the new school year! I hope you are all looking forward to a great year at ISD. The staff is well rested and looking forward to working with your children. We are thrilled to be welcoming several new dynamic teachers to our already amazing faculty.
I am so excited for you and your children. However, due to some recent health issues, I will not be able to join you at the start of the school year. There is nothing I would like more than to be there with all of you during those first exciting weeks of school. I am extremely grateful for the wonderful medical treatment I am receiving and I look forward to returning to ISD soon.
In the meantime, be assured that the ISD community is doing everything possible to make sure that our elementary students get off to a great start. Brad Chumrau will be serving as the acting elementary principal in my absence. He will also remain in his current role as the PYP coordinator. Jody Rodine will be serving as the elementary vice principal and continue to teach elementary learning support part-time.
With Brad and Jody in these roles, the Elementary School will have consistent strong leadership throughout the school year, and ISD will move forward with PYP implementation and a strong learning support program.
I know without a doubt that everyone at ISD is working to make sure that your children are actively and happily engaged in their learning and activities. Your children are in very good hands! I wish you the very best as we begin the 2017-18 school year and look forward to joining you again soon!
The ISD community extends our best wishes to Kelly for a full, speedy recovery. We will miss her energy and enthusiasm as the year begins, and we eagerly anticipate her return to ISD. If you have any questions about the transition, please feel free to contact Alan Knobloch at firstname.lastname@example.org or 766-44-6028.
