“Congratulations, District 303 graduates”
(May 24, 2006)

As a teacher, staff member, or administrator, it is sometimes hard to know how you are impacting students.

Certainly we have test results to help guide instruction and ensure that we’re meeting learning standards, and our students overall do well on these important measures.

Still, in the end, the only real proof that our efforts to teach, and your hard work and commitment to learn, have been meaningful and fruitful comes through real-life application after students leave our schools.

With that in mind I want to congratulate all of our District 303 graduates as you head on to college, employment, the military, or whatever life brings next. You have worked hard and deserve respect for your efforts.

I am proud of the work that District 303 staff has historically done to prepare its students for what follows high school.

But more than that, I am proud of the young adults District 303 continues to graduate. Their personal and academic excellence is the “proof” that what we are doing as a school district and community is right.

Congratulations to the District 303 graduating class of 2006, and best wishes for your future.

Dr. Barbara F. Erwin
Superintendent of Schools
Community Unit School District 303
