Welcome to the Director’s Cut! This blog was created with the intent of better communicating with our Spring Vale supporters, and specifically with our parents.
During SVA’s recent student orientation, I had the pleasure to spend time with many of our parents. While talking to a local parent who has been a long time supporter of everything Spring Vale, she expressed that she had no idea what the administrative transition meant for the school, and what SVA’s vision is for the future. Although these things were clear in my mind, I suddenly realized that they weren’t clear to everyone else. If it was this easy for even our local parents to feel disconnected and uninformed, then what about the rest of our parents and supporters spread all over the country? Hopefully, this new blog can help to change that.
Everyone who has a vested interest in Spring Vale, and especially those who have children here, should be informed and and up-to-date on everything that is happening at our school. Our new website, the digital Torch newsletter (available on our homepage), and the Director’s Cut blog reflect our efforts to better communicate.
Please stay tuned for more updates from the Directors Desk, including details about this year’s theme, “Relationships”, the success of our new Resource Room, Mark Caswell’s exciting work as full-time Principal & Counselor, and more discussion about what lies ahead!
