From the Superintendent's Desk


As the Stapleton School District approaches its final few days with students attending, complements need to be extended to the total community.  It has been a good overall year. With the press we have received recently, this may be one of the best academic years ever. What do we contribute this to?  Is it our students, the teachers, your administration—What?  As I, your superintendent, see it it’s a total COMMUNITY effort. What makes up the school community?  Our school community extends into the heart of North Platte as well because of the students we bus from that area every day. Whether you are a parent, grand parent, a property tax payer, a business owner or anyone else that has anything to do with the community as I see it it takes all of us. Thank you to all for your support in any big or small way to have helped make this past year a successful one. 

The District will experience another graduation on May 12th.  I want to give praise to this group of seniors for their positive leadership given this past school year. They have been very good students by the grades they earned and none of them being written up for any form of disciplined infractions. I feel they will all represent this school community well as they move on with their next phase of life. 

There will still be a lot of activity going on at the school throughout the next few months as we prepare for the next school year. It never stops, there is always something to do. There will also be work going on in the building to keep it in the best working condition possible. May everyone have a fruitful and safe summer break. For me it has been an honor to have been a part of this past year and I look forward to the future. THANK YOU ALL!!!
