    Greetings all HRCSD staff members,

    Here it comes… the Dreaded Letter; the letter that reminds us that autumn is just around the corner and our students will soon be stepping onto school buses, walking (safely, responsibly, and respectfully, of course) through our school doors and into our classrooms, gyms, auditoriums and cafeterias in a few short weeks. 


    I hope you've enjoyed this hot and dry summer season. I’m really excited to hear about all that you did to enjoy a little downtime. Maybe you took a few classes? Maybe you accomplished a few house projects? Maybe you’ve been working all summer, but got to focus on aspects of your job that, while important, fall to the bottom of the list when we have our students with us? Maybe you just played hard in the river or on the bike paths? Or maybe you read something that had nothing to do with teaching and learning? Hopefully, you got to do a lot of things that just don’t seem possible after Labor Day.  
    As I write, I’m readying to get a few days off with the kids to do some backpacking in the Goat Rocks Wilderness and finish with some sailing through the San Juan Islands. We’re also planning to spend the late Labor Day weekend camping on the coast. Not too shabby! Hopefully, by the time we’re all together as an entire school district on September 2nd, I'll earn that flip-flop tan-line I've notice on those of you I've run into these past week.

    In reading my welcome back letter from 2014, I referenced a whole list of accomplishments in the school district from the year prior.
