I have known most of you since you were in third grade. Over the past 10 years I have watched in pride as you have grown into a class of leaders, teachers, healers, scientist, technicians, advocates, athletes, artist, musicians, and actors. During your fifth grade Promotion Ceremony, I promised to watch you walk across this stage tonight. Little did I know that I would be here on stage with you.
Over the past several years many of you “with shock and awe” have praised me for my accomplishments and that I greatly appreciate. However, I am who I am today because of you, our students, and the successes each of you have shown over the years. Each time one of you looks at me with amazement and says, “Wow, you were my principal and now you are the superintendent! You’ve come a long way!” I always respond, “I know but it is because of you.” It’s true and I mean it from the bottom of my heart.
I know and expect to see you many times in the future, but I can’t send you officially on your way until I leave you with some advice. My hope for each of you is that you have joy in your life as I do through finding your purpose, helping others, and surrounding yourself with family and friends. I pass on to you the following advice:
A Little Perspective Goes A Long Way – The difference between those who overcome challenges and those who succumb to them is largely one of attitude and perspective. Embrace challenges and setbacks as not just refining moments, but also as defining moments. Don’t fall prey to challenges; learn from them.
Keep The Faith – Don’t fear life. Don’t allow obstacles to impede your progress. Don’t let someone else define possible or impossible for you. The world can take many things from you, but your faith is not one of them. Only you can surrender your faith so never lose hope.
Life Is All About People - Relationships are the biggest asset you have. Your world will be greatly impacted by those whom you choose to include and exclude from your life. Be kind to others, but most importantly, be intentional. Think “selfless” as opposed to “selfish.” Family and friends are worth more than job titles. Life is about people – not things. The funny thing is, if you do right by people, material things will never be an issue.
Stand Out From The Crowd – Everyone has unique gifts and talents, and the earlier you discover and develop yours the better off you’ll be. Build your personal brand, become a subject matter expert, and guard your reputation. Everyone has a personal brand – the question is will it be built by default or by design.
Be Serious About What You Do, But Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously - Humor can provide needed relief when times get tough.
Success vs. Significance – It’s important to realize there is not one definition of success. Success means different things to different people. As you continue your journey of personal and professional growth, it’s my hope your sights will shift from the pursuit of success to the passionate pursuit of significance. Find something bigger than you, and become a passionate, committed servant of whatever that cause or endeavor may be.
Learning Doesn’t Stop When You Graduate – Learning is a life long endeavor. The minute you stop learning is the minute you give opportunities to others. Always look to challenge and refine your thinking. Life is about learning and unlearning, and developing and growing. Don’t waste your experiences – view them as learning opportunities.
And last but not least, happiness and joy are not one in the same. Happiness comes and goes; it’s fleeting at best. Joy, however, is something that can be found in any circumstance or setting. It’s the joyful people who stand out to me. They are the lemonade makers – the ones who see the best in people, not the worst. Regardless of the hand they’re dealt, they don’t complain or become bitter. They remain joyful and continue pushing forward in pursuit of their dream.
And here ends ten years of official advice from me. Please make sure you come visit me often. I have faith in each and every one of you as you begin your new adventures and I wish you the very best. Watching you grow over the past ten years has brought much joy to my life. Thank you.

This Friday, the Class of 2013 will graduate from Cumberland High School! What an exciting time in one's life. This is a time to reminisce, celebrate accomplishments, and plan for the future. The above poem was written by senior Emilee Meinhard. I thought the poem was very fitting for the class since the theme when they were in elementary school was Reach for the Stars!
Beginning with the Governor's School Senior Symposium and CHS Senior Night, we have been celebrating the successes of the Class of 2013. On Friday, seniors presented their Senior Projects with confidence and pride. I also spent time at the SVCC Dual Enrollment Dinner and had the pleasure of watching 30 students walk in the SVCC Graduation on Saturday for earning an Associates Degree or Certificate (one year of college). I am very proud of these children I met while in third grade and now have grown into such wonderful young adults.
Below is information compiled by seniors Quinn Duty, Kayla Higgins, and Mason Dukes about the Class of 2013. Enjoy!

“Cumberland County has so much potential. I really hope to see more young people return to the area and invest in our community—raise their families here, start businesses, take on leadership roles in local government. I think the future of Cumberland really depends on young people with deep roots in this community branching out and bringing back the best of what they’ve learned.” - Justin Reid

Senior Project Day
Early Dismissal for Students (CCES at 12:45; CMS/CHS at 1:00)
The end of the school year and graduation is just around the corner! During the hustle, bustle, and the insanity of the end of a school year, it is hard to remain inspired. However, I ask each of you to take moments throughout the day and during events this month to take a close look at the accomplishments of our students. There you will find great celebrations, pride, and motivation. When talking with our seniors about their future plans (whether it is college, the military, or going into the workforce), they have dreams and aspirations that we have been a part of developing. When I observe and speak with our elementary students, they are having fun and proud of their learning. They want to show and tell everything! So step back from the hustle and bustle, and you will see bright, young individuals with great minds and talents!
Our students are our inspiration! We are developing life long learners and good citizens! Isn't that why we are in public education? When I visit classrooms and events each week, I find myself truly amazed by our students. Thanks to each of you for your hard work and dedication to the students of Cumberland County! It does pay off!

When we come to it
We must confess that we are the possible
We are the miraculous, the true wonder of this world
That is when, and only when
We come to it.

Last week was filled with student presentations and performances which I found very uplifting and inspiring! This is the time of the year that we observe, evaluate, and celebrate our students' accomplishments! For the second month in a row, the School Board meeting last Monday was packed with students, staff, and community members along with families for recognition of excellent citizenship, art, writing, and participation in various activities. On Tuesday, the high school inducted new members into the National Honors Society. On Thursday, middle school students in 7th and 8th grade presented their projects at the CMS Science Fair. On Friday, seniors who attend the Governor's School presented in the Senior Symposium. The week ended with the CMS and CHS Theatre group's outstanding performances of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz! After leaving the performance Saturday evening and attending the above mentioned showcases of success, I felt very humbled and thankful that I work with such a wonderful and dedicated group of students and staff. We truly are Student Centered, Teacher Inspired!
I am now going to digress a bit (more detailed information about our students' successes can be found in the CuCPS Highlights section). The Administrative Council is studying the book, Failure is NOT an Option (3rd Edition) by Alan Blankstein. One of our assignments in Chapter 1 was to share a favorite quote and explain why the quote was most meaningful. As I was reading, I came across a passage that really embodies why I think public education is critical to our students, community, and the world. It represents the importance of public education that I feel levels the playing field in reference to future opportunities for many of our students.
Leaders in Western society have long articulated the close tie between a strong public education system and democracy itself (Dewey, 1927; Glickman, 2003; S. J. Goodlad, 2001; Putman, 2000; Ravich, 2011). Schools are clearly for the common good, and they serve as the gateway to, and potential equalizer for, economic and life success for millions of underserved children.
As Michael Fullan (2003a) states, "A high-quality public school system is essential, not only for parents who send their children to these schools but also for the public good as a whole" (p. 4). Diane Ravich (2011) explained it this way: "Education is key to developing human capital. The nature of our education system- whether mediocre or excellent- will influence society far into the future. It will affect not only our economy, but also our civic and cultural life" (p. 223). Failure is no more an option for the institution of public education than it is for the children within that institution (p.4-5).
Pictures and highlights of recognition from the April School Board meeting can be found at www.cucps.k12.va.us.
The following students presented at the Gov. School Symposium last week on the following topics:

The following students earned awards at the CMS Science Fair:
I asked students on the Superintendent's Student Panels what they thought they needed in order to be successful learners, workers, and citizens. Our students know exactly what they need. Here is what they had to say!
Elementary:A very insightful group of elementary students ranging from six years old to nine, brainstormed the following list of skills that they feel they need for their futures.

The purpose of public education is to prepare students to be competitive global learners, workers, and citizens. 2025 will be the year that our current kindergartners will graduate from high school. What skills will our students need to be competitive in 2025? In the book, The Leader's Guide to 21st Century Education, Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill list eight perspectives on societal change that require schools to change:
The Workforce: The majority of jobs now require employees to be able to communicate, critically think, and interact with people. Memorization and "following instructions" are no longer the order of the day.
The Flat World: The flat world requires that people are self-directed. If a person needs to be managed they are no longer employable.
The Service Economy: Today, 80% of the country's jobs are in the service economy (headed to exceed 85%). Educators, doctors, lawyers, accountants, bankers, health care workers, electrical engineers, etc. are all included in the service economy. The service economy includes anyone who engages with customers, clients, or patients.
Citizenship: The demands of citizenship are much greater today than they were 50 years ago. These challenges require more complex thinking, empathy, civility, and sophisticated forms of interactivity.
Pace of Change: Change is now the "hallmark of our culture".
Design and Innovation: There is a growing importance of creativity, innovation, and design in our economy. Cost is no longer the only factor in purchasing. Daniel Pink points out that highly innovative environments empower a "culture of learning" which exhibit:
Collaboration, Crossing of Boundaries, Intrinsic Motivation, Responsible Risk Taking, and Creation of Knowledge.
Information: Information used to be largely static and could be fixed in a textbook. We now live in a world of ever-increasing information.
* You can read more about these eight perspectives in the book, The Leader's Guide to 21st Century Learning, by Ken Kay and Valerie Greenhill.
Please reflect, is your classroom instruction, parenting, community support preparing our children to be productive in 2025? I am asking our student panels to reflect on the same question. I will share what students think schools should be teaching in order to prepare them for their futures in my next Blog! Stay Tuned!
