Superintendent's Message

October 2023
Dear Moreland Community,

Fall is such a beautiful time of year as the leaves start to fall and change color. In my third year as Superintendent of Moreland, I especially appreciate the autumn traditions around the district including the Moreland Education Foundation’s Pumpkin Patch. Grimm’s Hollow is partnering with MEF once again to create the much anticipated haunted trail. On Friday, October 20, the Terrifying Tunes music concert will be held which brings together our Honors and middle school student musicians. This incredible community-building event happens thanks to parent volunteers and supports all our schools providing financial support for MEF. You can sign-up to work at the MEF Pumpkin Patch here and you can see their calendar of events here.

Did you ever wonder what teachers do on Staff Development Day? While your child was off school on Friday, October 6, all Moreland teachers came together for a Professional Development Day. At Moreland we know the importance of education, not just for students but for our staff as well.

This year, teachers had access to education experts to learn about a range of topics. First, author and education consultant Dr. Jan Richardson presented to all elementary teachers and English Learning Arts middle school teachers about guided reading and literacy. Dr. Richardson’s goal is for every student to become a better reader who can’t wait to read another book. Secondly, the Wipro Science Education Fellowship Program at Stanford and MMS teacher Michelle Sutton led a session about supporting multilingual learner access to core content for middle school math and science teachers. Finally, TK teachers discussed the Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning (CSEFEL) Teaching Pyramid, which promotes the social-emotional development of young children. We are so grateful not only for the presenters sharing their expertise, but for Moreland teachers who continue to innovate and grow.

As we continue through the fall months, please know that the Moreland School District values and appreciates your participation in our schools and thanks you for your continued support for helping to provide for the children we serve.  

In partnership,
