My first year at Viz was, in a word, phenomenal. I’ve never felt more welcomed into a community. This same spirit of hospitality was in abundance at Monday’s Welcome Back Family Picnic. What a pleasure it was to converse with so many of you! Thank you to the Mothers’ and Fathers’ Clubs for putting on this amazing event.
As I begin my second school year, I am filled with gratitude, joy, and excitement, and I want to start out the year by sharing my goals for 2019-2020. I’ve based these goals on what I’ve heard from the Viz community over the past year: my interactions with the students, parents, alumnae, and pretty much everyone I’ve spent time with. The general points are fairly broad, but stay tuned as our efforts will become more granular in their implementation. There are three goals, and all of them have the convenient mnemonic of starting with the letter “C.” (All due deference to Cookie Monster, but none of them have to do with cookies.)
These are fairly broad categories, but I believe they serve as a good prism through which you can view the coming year. I hope they allow you to make sense of what we are doing and provide context and direction. As the year unfolds, the specific details of these three points should become readily apparent.
As always, I’d love to connect with you to discuss what we are doing and where we are going. These goals are based on the feedback I received over the course of the past year, but I would expect this list to change and evolve over time. Next year’s list may look very different, or it may be a deeper dive into what we are currently doing. Either way, we are committed to continuous feedback.
I’m very excited about our students returning to school tomorrow and look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Yours in Christ,
