Welcome back for the 2015-2016 school year. I want to first and foremost say that it is truly our privilege and honor to work with your child[ren] each and every day. Thank you for allowing and trusting us to keep your children safe and providing them with a high-quality education. It is Warsaw Community School’s mission to inspire and equip all students to continuously acquire and apply knowledge and skills while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others. We take this mission seriously at Jefferson Elementary School. We appreciate your partnership in this process.
Speaking of pursuing dreams and enriching lives, we had two special visits during the month of August. Retro Bill provided a powerful, motivating speech to students. He spoke about the importance of being kind to one another and doing the right thing, even if no one is watching. He shared with students the idea of dreaming big, to never give up on their dreams, and the importance of working hard to reach those dreams. He also shared with students how to overcome a bully and the importance of asking for help when in trouble.
Our second set of visitors, eight Chinese students, joined us from Zhejiang Province in China. They spent three days in our school, learning more about American schools and customs, as well as sharing some of their own culture.
We are looking forward to a fantastic school year together!
