We look forward to recognizing some amazing teachers
in Chester County!
The beginning of school is always an exciting time for our students, staff, and our parents. We have been busy this summer getting ready to welcome our students back to class! I cannot wait to see them all when they return!
In my visits to schools this summer, it is evident that our school and district leaders and our School Board of Trustees are making decisions with the focus on our children in Chester County.
Our students must be able to read, lead and communicate appropriately in order to be successful during and after their education in Chester County School District.
Our commitment is to help our children learn to think critically and make good choices and decisions so that they are able to succeed in the world, no matter where life takes them!
Join me in our efforts to help our children grow into productive citizens in Chester County – “A Great Place to Learn and Grow!”
