2022-2023 School Year
A Message from the Superintendent
March 24, 2023
Dear Families, Staff and Community,
This afternoon, as spring break commences, I’d like to wish you a safe, restful week of rest and time away. Whether you’re traveling or staying close to home, I hope you are able to find the opportunity to connect with your families and loved ones.
Spring tends to be the busiest time of the school year as we round the corner to June, and I continue to be inspired by the hard work and dedication of our staff, students and families each and every day.
This week, Greeley School first grade students participated in a “Changemaker March” (see photo below) to the Village Green, advocating for causes of their choice including (verbatim), ”Keep anamuls safe,” “No fighting only peace,” ”Help the homeles,“ Do not throw grbij on the beach,” and “LOVE.” One student remarked, “We march because we are hoping to change the world.”
Democracy is a longstanding tenet of Progressive Education. We are grateful for how, in so many ways, you help foster confidence within our students to use their voices in order to make a meaningful difference in the world in their own way.
The spirit of Progressive Education is alive and well in our schools (if you haven’t yet listened, check out our latest podcast episode on our community’s unique legacy in pioneering Progressive Education). We look forward to continuing to advance our important work when we return to campus in April. In the meantime, have a fabulous spring break!
Dr. Kelly Tess, Superintendent
