And a happy first day of school to you!
If you’ve followed Principal Reflections in the past, you know that I dedicate the first post of the school year to the power and importance of the first day of school. Even though we are surrounded by that sense of electricity, wonder, and hope in our schools this morning, I am going to forgo that usual entry and instead welcome the Independence community to my blog.
Over the course of this year, I will post regular entries about a variety of topics related to Independence High School or even life in general. What you won’t find on this blog is informational items; meaning, if you need to know about meetings or specific details about events, especially once we are in the building, this is not the place for that. Those aspects would still be pushed out through regular means such as the school’s website, ConnectED, or social media (if you haven’t so already, please start following @IndyNationLCPS on Twitter and Instagram and Independence High School on Facebook).
Rather, my intention for this blog is to allow people to learn more about Independence High School, the staff, the community, adolescences, school-related matters, as well as me. It’s not heavy reading but I hope you will find it engaging reading, something that could easily be digested while you enjoy your morning coffee and maybe even tickle your brain a little.
You can certainly check back here from time to time to see if there is a new post, but I would also encourage you to sign up for alerts. That way you will know when something has been posted—and you can tell a friend as well! So in the meantime, please feel free to look over past entries and archived posts when I was the principal of John Champe High School until my next entry.
Anyway, I hope your student had a great first day and comes home with his/her sense of wonder and excitement primed and ready to go for the rest of the year!
