I look forward to this time of year so that friendships can be rekindled as well as new people and faces are introduced to our learning community. We have had a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends the last couple of months and are now anticipating the start of school and a time to reunite with our classmates and friends. It is fun to have students, teachers, administrators, school personnel and community members coming to the school and saying hello as well as sharing some of their summer highlights. Target Range School District #23 is a great gathering place for our students, parents and community.
One item that I wish to draw more attention to this year is our school district’s Mission. The Target Range Mission that has been developed and adopted is, “Inspired students Learning, Growing and Succeeding!” We feel fortunate that we have earned the trust of so many families to inspire their children. The definitions for success, growing and succeeding are countless and that is what we want our students to understand. Their future can be measured in countless ways that all demonstrate learning, growing and succeeding. Please feel free to contact us at your leisure to discuss this and experience how it looks and feels in your school.
In their traditional manner, the administrative team has been very busy preparing for the upcoming year. Mrs. Droessler and Ms. Hopper are very complimentary of each other. They are tremendous assets to our school. The duo have revised or reviewed our operating procedures along with scheduling for the upcoming needs of our students and faculty. They are extremely dedicated to creating the best learning environment for all learners who enter our doors. Along with their multiple duties, they were also able to take some much deserved time with their friends and family this summer. I encourage you to take some time with them to share stories and ask questions that you may have.
Our maintenance and custodial team have also been very busy preparing our facilities for our students. I am so impressed with the amount of pride they have in our school and building. The Target Range campus, building and grounds are in the best shape to start the year that I have ever seen. Thank you to our folks and for all their hard work this summer. I am certain Mr. Huston and his crew would appreciate receiving much deserved appreciation from all of us.
We will be welcoming our students on Wednesday, August 30, 2017 with much anticipation. I hope you are as excited as we are to see the children and make learning a fun and rewarding experience. We wish to continue to foster our relationships with the families and provide the best learning opportunities for our students in and out of school. Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher when you have questions or would like to share information that we need to know. Your partnership with us is essential for continuous learning.
Welcome to Target Range!
