Letter From the Superintendent

August 2015

 

Dear Parents and Students,

 

Summer is winding down fast.  Hopefully yours included some extra time outdoors, some extra time with family, and some relaxation (and a little bit of ice cream).

 

One of the things that I love about education is the ever-renewing cycle.  Each school year is a new opportunity to reenergize our goals and plans.  With a fresh look after a break, things that we once thought were unattainable suddenly become real possibilities.  The same is true for our children.  As I prepare my own kids to return to school, I try to find opportunities to get them to talk about things they would like to improve and areas they would like to grow.  From these little chats I learn how I can offer support, how to champion their ambitions, how to quell fears...and most of all, how to listen.  

 

We have been working these past months to set the sails for a new year.  As we chart a course for success (“college and career ready” is the current terminology), we also studied the prevailing winds and real challenges--changes in testing, changes in laws, obstacles to learning.  We have taken the time to prepare so we can stay the course. This year’s work will be anchored in our District Goals, which were written after a thorough study of our strengths and needs. The three goal areas are:  parent involvement, achievement (math and literacy) and continuous improvement (full text of adopted goals is on our website).  You will see changes in social media and in parent outreach, and we welcome any and all suggestions to strengthen this critical partnership that is central to student outcomes.  

 

To communicate about various issues in education, I have created a blog:

http://wausaukee.weebly.com/ .  If you have suggestions about topics you would like to learn more about, please let me know--my email is koxa@wausaukee.k12.wi.us or you can call me anytime (715-856-5151, ext. 412).  Please take a minute to complete a survey that is linked to the blog regarding day care in school (do you know someone who would like to do this?) and adult/student enrichment classes (what kinds of classes would you like to see or offer?).

 

I appreciate your support in providing a world-class educational program.  I value your feedback and encourage you to share it.  The suggestions that I have received this year have been very helpful, and the respectful way that they have been delivered says a lot about this community.  

Keep them coming!  

 

Ann C. Kox, Ed.D.

 

Education is learning what you didn't even know you didn't know.

Open House

The district would like to send a reminder about the PK-8 Open House that will be taking place on Wednesday, August 26th from 4:30 pm until 6:00 pm. The Open House will be different from the past.  At 4:30 there will be a brief assembly in the auditorium followed by classroom visits, where you will have a chance to see the classroom, meet the teacher, get a sneak peak at the curriculum, and drop off supplies.   Please feel free to join us in the cafeteria for a slice of pizza during the event.
