It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 2018-2019 academic school year. I am truly excited to announce that our relentless desire to promote quality instruction, self-esteem, socio-emotional, and behavioral development for all students is stronger than ever. Embracing traditional values, such as respect and manners, shall remain top priorities. Everyone should take extreme comfort in knowing that literacy, math, school climate, and student attendance will remain our school-wide goals.
Through collaborative leadership, I am excited to work together to generate fresh ideas, improve student achievement, strengthen parental involvement, and move the school forward. With community support, I will continue to inspire and inject enthusiasm into the veins of the district while simultaneously keeping the bar of expectations high. Ultimately, I will display an unmatched level of not only energy and care, but also moral leadership. Above all, I will proudly provide quality programs and services to ensure school wide excellence.
As we embark on this journey, please know that a thoughtful master class schedule was created to provide more layers of instructional intervention, basic skill, and accelerated academic support for the sake of all students. In addition, I am requesting that we continue to embrace the same school cultural norms, which are: 1) school pride, 2) education is sacred, 3) no one has the right to hurt another person, 4) we respect one another, and 5) we will never behave in a manner that will discredit ourselves, our team, or Fairfield Township School District.
Unquestionably, I see value in embracing a shared-vision approach, working together, and cultivating school community relationships rooted in respect and trust. In this manner, striving to also foster a school climate anchored in professionalism shall be seen as critically important. Ultimately, I am deeply devoted to making sure all students are experiencing school success within a safe learning environment.
In light of the above, I am 100% confident this will be the best year ever. As the school leader, I look forward to your support and cooperation.
Dr. Michael Knox
