The 2020-2021 school year was a challenge, to say the least. We wandered our way through ever-changing mandates and guidance and made it through a full year with students learning on-site. This was a massive accomplishment considering the times we were in. We were successful last year by following the guidance and working as a team. The efforts of the students, staff members, and parents were commendable. So here we are, ready to enter the 2021-2022 school year. Our primary goal is to once again provide students with another full year of safe on-site learning. We have chosen this year's theme to be "One Step at a Time". We will take things "one step at a time" with hopes that we see brighter days ahead. We must remain optimistic and hopeful that these times will be like a summer thunderstorm. It might get darker, the wind might blow, the lightning might flash, the thunder might boom. But in the end, we walk outside to clearing skies and the smell of a fresh new world. I am confident that those days will arrive. I look forward to another year of tremendous teamwork, with the result of which being a successful academic experience for each and every Reed-Custer student.
