Important Announcement

Dear Jefferson Parents/Families,

There are times in life when unique opportunities present themselves and the path of our lives takes an unexpected turn.  These can often be difficult times as they typically bring about changes that can be a challenge.  I want you to know that this afternoon at the Warsaw Community Schools’ Board of Trustees work session; I was approved as Warsaw Community Schools’ next Chief Academic Officer.

While I am excited about this opportunity and the path I believe God is leading me on as a school leader, I will very much miss serving you and your children as principal at Jefferson Elementary School.  The last two years have been two of the best of my career.

The decision to move to this position was not an easy one.  It was made with much prayer, counsel and thought. The transition to Chief Academic Officer will not be easy because I love my job as principal at Jefferson. However, I believe the Lord is leading in my life, taking me into a new role where my influence and ability to serve broadens to a whole school corporation. I look forward to serving  7,200 students and their families as well as hundreds of teachers and staff members. I believe this new position for me is the ultimate “support staff” position. I am happy that although I won’t be serving you as your building principal, I will still be working with you, and serving you as your Chief Academic Officer.

I am excited about this new chapter in my life.  I am excited to work under Dr. Hoffert’s leadership.  I am excited to be used by God to serve our school corporation.  I believe in our mission here at Warsaw Community Schools…to inspire and equip all students to continuously acquire and apply knowledge and skills while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others.  So often those dreams change and that change is hard, but when we spend our dreams enriching others, life is full.

I appreciate the support you've shown me over the last two school years.  It has been my honor to work with your students and with you as the principal at Jefferson.  As Chief Academic Officer, one of my goals is to honor and reflect the values and desires of the families we serve with the decisions I will be making in this new role.  Your input plays such an important role and as such, it is my desire that I still hear from you and have contact with you.  Please don't ever hesitate to email or call me with questions or concerns.  My children will continue to attend Jefferson, and so I do plan on seeing you as a fellow parent as well!

Again, I am thankful for each of you and your families and look forward to serving you in this new role.


Mr. Robertson
