Inspiring Excellence

Welcome to a year of inspiring excellence! It’s almost time. School starts soon, and our entire Clovis Unified educational team is enthusiastically preparing for Aug. 19 when students return to the classroom! 

Each year our team chooses a theme for the year. This theme captures in a simple sentence or phrase a “word of the moment” for our community of educators and this year, our theme is “Inspiring Excellence.” In a world that often offers the easy way out of so many situations or circumstances, this theme reminds
us that our standards should always be high.

That is first true for ourselves, and only then can we hold the same high expectations for our students. For our parent community, be assured that our expectations are high. Our community should expect no less from us; it’s what our kids deserve. 

We have spent the summer poring over each of our campuses, deep cleaning classrooms and buses, hiring enthusiastic and high quality teachers, and making sure that our schools are ready and welcoming for our students.

We are excited about the new school year, and we hope that you are too. In the pages of this issue of CUSD Today, you will find information to help your family be ready to make the most of the new school year. We want to stay in touch with you and encourage you to take an active role in your local school community. Welcome to the new school year. It’s going to be excellent!
