Message from Superintendent Dr. George Mannon

Dr. Mannon at the Walteria ES Adventures in Art Exhibit with PTA President Stacey Launuis and Walteria AIA Chair, Lopsie Schwartz

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing summer. The first week of school went smoothly and students are settling nicely into their new classrooms. The start of the school year is always an exciting time for students, educators, and parents. It is the perfect time to set new goals and prepare for a successful year. 

While summer provides students a much needed break and quality time with their families, for teachers and administrators it is when much of the preparation for the coming year is done. On-going professional development is an essential part of our District’s success. All our teachers participated in one or more training over the summer in subject areas ranging from English Language Arts to Math and Science. While we offer some professional development during the school year, summer professional development allows teachers the opportunity to develop their subject matter knowledge without having to miss class time. We are fortunate to have teachers who invest their time, and are dedicated to continuously improving their knowledge of subject area content in order to meet the needs of their students. 


I am proud of the hard work our teachers, staff, and administrators have done over the summer to ensure 2016-2017 school year will be another successful academic year!
