     As I write this May newsletter, I reflected on a quote from Batman, “You only have your thoughts and dreams ahead of you.  You are someone.  You mean something!”  While this school year was filled with many opportunities for dreaming and growth, we stayed focused on students’ individual gifts, families and relationships.   The continuous focus on students and families is what makes Steeple Run a wonderful place!   
    To start the month of May, Home and School during Teacher Appreciation week, will be raising awareness and funds for Special Olympics!  Please find a few links below that inform about this amazing organization:  (your support is appreciated)

    As we close this school year and begin to plan and move forward for the 2017-2018 school year we will continue to look for the Super Hero inside each of us.  Next year at the elementary level the district will be implementing the Digital Learning Initiative which will involve blended learning opportunities for our students.   Our teachers will be learning and preparing for the new initiative this spring and summer as well as through next school year.  Steeple Run teachers are always learning!
    Mrs. Lazzara and Mrs. Hennigan will sure to be experiencing change as they find other ways to share their super powers as they approach retirement.  We will miss them, but are also excited for this new adventure!  While they begin a new chapter in their lives, we know they will always be part of our Steeple Run Family.  
    We would like to send a ‘heart felt’ thank you to Home and School, Watch DOG leadership and SFCP committee members.  You are an integral part of making students and families’ experiences here at Steeple Run memorable.  The talents you give every day to the school community are selfless and focus on our students and families.  We appreciate all that you do and honor each and every one of you.   We wish all of the Steeple Run students and families a wonderful summer!

Strategic Blueprint

  • District 203’s FOCUS 2020 Strategic Blueprint

    Posted by Superintendent Dan Bridges at 6/27/2014
    FOCUS 2020 is the strategic plan for comprehensive improvement between 2014 and 2020, designed in response to community feedback, best practice, and a vision for the future. Ultimately, this blueprint will advance the fulfillment of the district’s mission.
     
    FOCUS 2020’s foundation is the Future Focus Community Engagement process that occurred over the course of a year where hundreds of members from across the community provided feedback to the district leadership regarding areas such as facilities, finances, measuring student success, and programs of study. Learn more about Future Focus by clicking on the specific “Quick Link” to the left of this text.
     
    The Blueprint includes four “Strategic Focus” areas, namely to:
    1. Design and implement effective practices that promote learning experiences for all.
    2. Foster a high-performance culture focused on student learning.
    3. Steward resources effectively to promote student learning.
    4. Effective communication and community relations.
    Each Strategic Focus then establishes “Commitments.” These commitments are what the district leadership pledges to accomplish within a distinct timeframe. Each commitment then includes a detailed “Action Plan” which will be accessible by the public upon final draft.
     
    District administrators provided an update on Blueprint Commitments to the Board of Education at the July 27, 2015 meeting.  To watch that presentation, please click here
