Hello Jersey Community Unit School District No. 100 Family and WELCOME to the 2015-2016 School Year!
As I write this post, I cannot believe the month of August has arrived, which means school is here! I have reflected on the previous school year quite a bit over the summer, certainly captivated by the heart of so many, which directly relates to OUR 2015-2016 theme: Panthers HAVE Heart! One must wonder why - in a world where we continue to be inundated with the horror surrounding the actions of the few – our small little part of the world reflects so much goodness through the actions of the masses. Think about it! There continues to be so much love that surrounds OUR Panther family, especially during extremely tough times; compassion shown to our special education population; support illustrated by our community with the passing of the one cent referendum; time and commitment given by our staff on behalf of all students;
camaraderie displayed by our parents in building a strong and vibrant support force; enthusiasm and spirit demonstrated by OUR loyal Panther fans; an intensified belief that the world can be a wonderful place illustrated by OUR students; and the list goes on and on. It’s quite amazing, really! One can never deny that much more good than bad exists in our community, so this year the challenge is ON!
Let’s SHOW our HEART and do OUR part to make a GREAT new start!
Let’s BLEED BLUE, PANTHERS!
