A MESSAGE TO PARENTS
“The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, nor a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.” Vince Lombardi
Children are our nation’s best and brightest resource. The mission of our schools is to produce citizens who can effectively communicate, gather and use information, make responsible decisions and adapt to challenges of the future. Research shows that a child’s learning is greatly influenced by parents and other family members. In fact, parents’ involvement in the learning process enables children to learn more. Research also shows that, when parents and staff work together cooperatively, student learning is enhanced. South Lake Schools recognizes this and encourages parents to be active participants in their child’s educational growth. Therefore, please let staff members know how our schools can best serve your child. The 2017/18 school year will present many challenges within our school district, state and country, but South Lake graduates will continue to demonstrate that they are educationally prepared to contribute to and lead our society. As superintendent, I feel especially proud knowing that our students are in good hands . . . the care of South Lake’s outstanding staff.
Ted VonHiltmayer, Superintendent of Schools
