It is with great honor, pride and humility that I continue to serve the students, parents, and community members of District 1. As the school year comes to a close, I want to again thank and commend you for your work in improving the learning and lives of our students and uplift of our community. This school year has seen tremendous success and improvements in our District and I am extremely proud of the work that is being done by our teachers, district and school leaders, parents, and community stakeholders. It has also brought with it our serving witness to challenges and tragedies near and far, and our collective resolve and resilience to rise above them all.
As we near the summer months, we want to continue to encourage our students to prepare and remain engaged in educational enrichment so that we can keep this momentum and continue on our journey to improve the lives of our youth. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do. I look forward to your continued support, encouragement, and efforts.
Have a Happy and Safe summer!
Let’s go!
Steve Gallon III
School Board Member, District 1
