Building Bridges, Embracing Voices

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” Helen Keller

February 2024

As we continue our pursuit of educational excellence, it’s vital that we engage with all members of our community to gather diverse perspectives. Your input is invaluable in shaping the future of our schools, and we’re committed to providing a platform for you to share your thoughts.

We’ve recently implemented a software technology platform called Thought Exchange to facilitate this process. This tool enables individuals to easily share their viewpoints, empowering us to develop inclusive strategies and plans.

While we have already heard from various stakeholders like our Board of Education, administration, faculty, staff, and PTA, we’re now extending this conversation to our students and parents.

Parents, it’s your opportunity to contribute. Your feedback is essential as we strive to maintain and enhance the strengths of our schools while addressing areas for improvement.

Please take a moment to participate in our Thought Exchange survey by clicking the following link:

What are the points of pride in our schools that we should continue to celebrate, and what are some areas we should focus on in order to improve?

Please mark your response as a PRIDE or OPPTY (OPPORTUNITY) when drafting your response.

Your input is highly valued, and we appreciate your collaboration in this endeavor.

Thank you for your ongoing support. We look forward to hearing your insights and working together to ensure the continued success of our students and schools.

All my best,

Dr. Rui Dionisio

Superintendent of Schools
