I ran across a quote this summer that got me thinking about what we are trying to do in the Laurel Schools. Vince Lombardi said, "Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection, we can catch excellence." When asked about the current status of the Laurel Schools, I usually begin by saying that we are not a perfect organization. However, we are a healthy family filled with people who are committed to the children of Laurel and who are working so hard that there is no time for drama. This type of drama-free environment is what I am most proud of over the past three years. Everything we do is focused on helping our children reach their fullest potential. I want to thank the citizens of Laurel for giving us the resources we need to create a first-class learning environment for our students.
As we enter this transformational stage, I want to assure the public that we are up for the challenge. Our goal is to prepare students to compete in a global and ever-changing technological world. However, our schools cannot do it alone. We need the entire community to come together to create a cultural change where education becomes the most important conversation in every home. By embracing this mind set, we will forever change the trajectory of our community, and set ourselves up for a future filled with unlimited possibilities.
This time last year, I announced that this would be the "Decade of the Tornado" and I have no reason to back away from that statement. The second year of our Ninth Grade Academy and our JROTC program has us poised for greatness. The Laurel High School Select Choir is heading back to Carnegie Hall and our athletic programs are filled with tremendously talented players who are excited about the challenge of 5-A competition. Most importantly, we have fabulous teachers and wonderful students who are committed to bringing back the great pride in the "Cardinal and Gold." The Laurel Schools have a rich tradition of excellence and please know that we will continue to chase this excellence with a vigor that everyone can be proud of.
