The Direct Connection

May 22, 2017

Good Monday morning, Teachers, Staff and Administrators:

I have been working for the school district for the past 25 years and cannot recall the last day for students ever occurring prior to the Memorial Day weekend. I believe that the conclusion of the school year is falling at the right time. Our ten graduation commencements, the culminating activity of K-12 education, begin Thursday evening and conclude Sunday night. In one way or another, many of you have a connection to the graduates through your interactions with these young people as a teacher, school counselor, staff member or administrator. These graduates are the finest examples of our work as educators, and we should take great pride in that fact.

For those of you who will begin your summer break on June 1st, I am sure that you have many ideas of how to enjoy the summer sabbatical. There will be learning opportunities beginning June 5th -8th  at Volusia Learns! where great keynote speakers will begin each session. Whatever you choose to do, be sure to do it with family and friends and enjoy your summer. Thank you all for your service to our students, the school community and to each other.

Summer Regards,

Tom Russell
