Dear Altar Valley Families,
It is the beginning of the second half of the 2014-2015 school year, and it is a good time to determine how successful we have been in meeting our goals. For myself, this is like the second half of a ball game and I have a few words for “Team Altar Valley.”
I would like to ask each of you if you have met the goals you have set? Are you where you want to be? Did you give the first half of the year your best? What have you learned from your successes and failures? What do you plan to do in the second half of this school year?
Our goal for Altar Valley School District is to make decisions in the best interest of our kids and to ensure academic excellence for all. I expect each of you to help us reach our goals and thank you in advance for your support! I ask all of you to please take a few minutes to define new goals for yourself this upcoming year:
1. Don’t just say you are going to “try harder.” Do it.
2. Put aside time for family and homework.
3. Learn something new everyday.
4. Get to school on time and follow directions the first time.
5. Exercise and eat healthier. A healthy mind and body are keys to success.
This is the beginning of a new year and the second half of our school year. Fortunately for us, school is never over! Don’t give up! What you do today determines what the future holds for you. If you want to set yourself up for a rewarding future, you are going to have to make every day count. Set goals, take action, and start today.
I challenge everyone on Team Altar Valley to settle for nothing less than the very best!
Dr. David Dumon, Superintendent
