Dear Mount Pleasant Community,
I hope that summer brought your families the opportunity to rest, rejuvenate, and relax.
When I welcomed back teachers and staff, I told them that we have much work to do together and I’m excited about the next chapter in our story and for the work ahead for the 2022-2023 school year. I offered them my very best wishes for an academic year that is productive, and that is filled with joyful teaching and learning. We talked about being unstoppable in our pursuit of student engagement and excellence. It was a beautiful day on our Westlake Campus and it made me even more excited to welcome our students back for the first day of school.
Over the summer, we continued work on our Strategic Plan and Profile of a Mount Pleasant Learner. This work began with community surveys last Spring and was developed with the voices of many of our staff members, parents, community members, and students.
To advance our mission to educate each child today for endless possibilities tomorrow, as a District, we will:
- Develop high levels of proficiency in all learners across an academically aligned K-12 curriculum;
- Create a culture of care and wellness;
- Provide our staff professional learning opportunities to enhance learning.
Please join me in thanking our custodial and office staff for helping us ensure that we were ready to welcome our students back. Classrooms and all spaces of our schools both inside and outside are in excellent condition! Thank you to our teachers for taking the time to ensure that our classroom environments are beautiful. Last but not least, thank you to our Board of Education members for their continued support and commitment to our schools and our students.
It is a great time to be a Wildcat!
With best regards,
Dr. Peter Giarrizzo
Superintendent of Schools
