Payne Post – 10/27/2016

Greetings All,

October is College Awareness Month. Please join us in conversations around college. Now is the time to instill the expectation.  In my career, I have had the opportunity to speak with many parents about how we are preparing students and expect them to continue their education beyond high school and even beyond the undergraduate years of college. Some have listened with hope and quiet respect, for some there is no doubt, but for some the probability is daunting and precludes the possibility. I believe all of our students can, will and must attend college our collective future depends on it.

As a school community we must ensure that we speak to each other and pass amongst each other the keys to access the various worlds in which we live.
