Welcome to Student Support Services

August 8, 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians and Community Partners,

It is with great pleasure that I write to welcome you back to another great school year. I hope that your summer has been filled with fun family activities while enjoying the wonderful sunshine. How quickly summer concludes and our thoughts turn to preparing for the start of school. This is always one of my favorite times of the year! I love the excitement of beginning each new school year and eagerly await welcoming our students. I’m thrilled to be part of a team comprised of teachers, staff, parents and students who want to achieve great things! Our faculty, staff and I are looking forward to a new school year and are working hard to see that your child’s learning experience at Converse County School District #1 schools is a successful and happy one.

Your partnership and support are key elements to ensuring that we are able to maximize each student’s educational and personal development. To that end, we encourage a positive home-school relationship based on the mutual goal of providing the best learning experience possible for all of our students. Our talented faculty brings a diverse set of approaches to instruction in order to address a variety of student learning styles. During the August scheduled open house, families will have the opportunity to meet the faculty at their child’s established school. They will have the opportunity to visit their child’s classroom, begin to form a relationship with the classroom teacher, as well as learn about the grade level curriculum, specials, classroom technology, and activities.

Throughout the district, there is an incredible level of excitement as everyone makes final preparations for the arrival of our children. It is with the same care, enthusiasm, and commitment that we approach the craft of teaching. As the people you have entrusted with the education of your children, we have developed a strong educational program that addresses each child’s social, emotional and academic needs. By utilizing research based, best practices is education, we promote an educational environment that engages the students in meaningful work so that they develop the critical skills necessary to become independent, responsible, and productive citizens.

The staff and I are eagerly waiting to welcome you to another wonderful school year and look forward to seeing families and students very soon!

If you have any questions, please call me at (307) 358-6187 or email at phawk@ccsd1.org. We wish you the best for a successful and rewarding school year!
