As we prepare for a new year of stimulating, faith-filled and educational experiences, I pray that each of you has enjoyed time with family this summer, rejuvenating yourself spiritually and mentally to embrace the excitement that a new school year brings to each of us.
Prior to starting the 2014-15 school year, I am excited to introduce Ms. Jona Wright, our new associate superintendent of catholic schools. Ms. Wright will continue the remarkable work on our curriculum project that Dr. Jeffrey Green started last year. The project is evolving continuously and we look forward to discussing the newly developed curriculum guides at the upcoming Superintendent’s Conference Day in October.
Each of our schools provides a loving, safe and engaging learning environment. Our Catholic-school teachers are deeply dedicated to the spiritual and educational mission of our schools — putting students first. This dedication, combined with a vast array of extracurricular activities, help to form well-rounded students who are prepared for life in today’s society.
Our families serve as our greatest treasure within our Catholic school communities. If you have chosen a Catholic education for your child, we hope that you will talk to your friends and neighbors about your child’s school, and why you have made the choice to send them there. If you would like more information about any of our schools, please visit www.dorschools.org.
May God bless you and your families throughout the upcoming school year!
Anthony S. Cook III
Superintendent of Catholic Schools
