One enjoyable aspect of my job as Superintendent is to have the opportunity to meet monthly with the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council. Each high school is represented by five students and a staff advisor. We meet once a month from October through May and each High School graciously hosts our meetings. Prior to our meetings, school advisors submit students’ questions which range from academic opportunities to lunch menus. The agendas are rich and promote great discussions each time.

This week I attended, for the first time, a JROTC Inspection ceremony. I did not know what to expect when North High School Principal, Lisa Dyer, invited me to attend the ceremony. I sat next to family members, totally mesmerized by the ceremony and by our students’ performance and the outstanding rendition of the National Anthem by Seniors Miqueas Rodriguez and Sabrina Martino.
