Busy Bee Families, 

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! It may feel like we just finished, but here we are. We can either dwell on the fact that we had a shorter break this summer, or we can choose to be excited about the new school year. It is here, regardless, so I’m going to choose to get pumped up.

Our theme this year is “You BEElong at ADE”. We know that one of the many things we pride ourselves in at ADE is the strong relationships we all build with one another. The relationships between administrators, teachers, staff, students, parents, and the community are foundational to success. I am blessed to be the leader of the school, but honestly you are blessed to be a part of it, too. Not because of me, but because of the quality of our students, parents, teachers, and community. We should all feel blessed to have one another. We all have a part to play in making this place the best it can be. We all belong here, and we all need one another. We should remember that. It will take all of us, every day, to ensure that everyone feels included and knows just how valuable they are. That is how you make people feel like they belong. That is how we continue to help our children grow.

                                                                             

Together, we will achieve our mission of preparing and supporting children to thrive in the global community of the 21st century. All students will be supported as we work to build the knowledge, critical and creative thinking skills, and integrity required to be successful citizens.

 

 

 

 

 

Respectfully,

 

Eric Masaitis
