What do we want for every child?

What do we want for every child? As a school district, we’re thinking about that and working on it every day. We are fully committed to each of our kids – to them being safe, engaged, supported, healthy and challenged.

Some days our work is joyous, and some days it’s sorrowful. Recently, we’ve felt significant sorrow. But we can’t – and we won’t – ever stop doing what’s best for kids.

January is Whole Child month. Whole Child is the way we care for kids 24 hours a day, everywhere they are. It’s schools, it’s community partners, it’s families and neighborhoods wrapping our collective arms around children.

Together, we want to help kids see that they belong, that they matter in every way. Taking care of our kids is about academics, but it’s also about helping them learn to build meaningful relationships, resolve conflict and gain the skills to manage emotions. That’s the Whole Child, on their way to becoming thriving adults. In this new video, district, school, student and community leaders explain why this work is crucial to student success.
