Dear Social Circle City Schools Families,

We work to ensure that every child we serve has access to the knowledge and skills needed to become mindful, productive, and empowered citizens. We will continue to provide a safe and positive learning environment while implementing Social-Emotional Learning in order to promote the mental well-being of both students and staff. We work diligently to review and revise curriculum and instructional priorities in order to ensure effective and engaging instruction and assessment. As always, we will meet our children where they are and celebrate their achievements every step of the way! We know that we will make our best improvements by putting students first in all decision-making. We appreciate and utilize stakeholder feedback in all of our planning efforts. I am honored to partner with our families, school board members, community members, and staff members to help all of our students maximize their potential.
