Subject: Welcome to a new school year


 Dear Linden Unified School District Families and Community,


With the start of a new school year comes the anticipation of new beginnings.    As we head into a new school year, it is my privilege to introduce to you our new administrators, which are: Jennifer Moseley, Principal of Linden Elementary School, Scott McGregor, Assistant Principal for Linden High School (John Schallberger is now the Director of Child Welfare and Attendance), Teresa Coyle, Teaching Assistant Principal for Waterloo Middle School, and Amanda Ray, Teaching Assistant Principal for Glenwood Elementary School.  We are so privileged to have such wonderful leaders lead our Linden schools.


The first year I was privileged to be the superintendent of Linden Unified School District, our theme for the year was “Every Child, Every Day!” which focused staff on making sure each child is engaged each day, while last year’s theme “Start from the Heart” helped us focus on making sure all staff connect with each child each day.  This year's school district theme is "Unleash Their Dreams ~ Ignite Their Hope".    There is an old proverb that states, “Hope deferred makes the heart sick; but when dreams come true at last, there is life and joy” (Solomon).  What a great opportunity our staff has to help students go after their dreams and have hope for their future! This is truly going to be a great year.  Walt Disney once said that, "All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them." Let us, as a team, support our children’s dreams and ignite their hope!


As we look towards the next school year, I wanted to update you regarding some changes that will happen this school year that will benefit our younger students greatly.  We have increased the day for all TK – 3rd grade students by 25 minutes per day, so all students will get out at the same time at your school site. All school start times will be the same, except Waterloo, which will start 20 minutes later, and get out 20 minutes later than last year. 


As the school year starts, it reminds me of a quote from Nelson Mandela, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”  We look forward to the future as we move into this year.  As always, if you have any questions or just want to talk, feel free to email me at [email protected] or call my office at (209) 887-3894. Also, I hold Open Office Hours each Thursday from 3:00 to 4:30 pm., so feel free to drop by my office.
