Superintendent's Message

December 2, 2022
 
Dear AWRSD students, staff and families,
 
Thank you for another positive and productive week of learning. Walking daily throughout our schools, I continue to be amazed by our students’ capabilities and desire to learn.
 
The Oakmont music department will be traveling to Orlando, Florida next week. Students will be participating in several educational workshops. On Saturday, the jazz band and select choir will be performing at Universal Studios and on Sunday, the Marching Spartans will be at the Magic Kingdom marching down Main Street USA. Best of luck to our musicians as they embark on this exciting adventure.
 
Report cards will be issued in the middle and elementary schools next week. This will be the first time using an electronic version of reports cards. Be sure to check your parent portal for your child’s report card. Report card time is always a great time to reflect with your child on what is going well and also on any areas for improvement. The importance of setting a concrete plan for improvement or for maintaining excellence is extremely important for students of all ages.
 
JR Briggs will be hosting their annual holiday shop for students on December 12th, 13th, and 14th. If your student attends Briggs, be on the lookout for more information about this special event.
 
The WES/MHS PTO held a holiday craft fair recently with more than 198 students completing crafts. This is the largest craft fair yet. Many thanks to the parent volunteers and Oakmont peer leaders for making this event such a success. The WES student council is hosting a Toys for Tots drive. For more information or how to make a donation, please reach out directly the Westminster Elementary School.
 
As a reminder, Wednesday, December 7th, will be a half day in all schools in AWRSD schools for staff professional development. Oakmont and Overlook dismissal will be at 11:00am, and all three elementary schools will dismiss at 12:00pm. No lunch will be served that day.
 
Thank you as always for your continued support and collaboration. Have a wonderful weekend.
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Todd Stewart
 
Superintendent
