From The Superintendent to the Community

Dear Waverly Schools Community,

As the hues of fall envelop us, I find myself taking a moment to reflect upon my journey and the paths that have led me to become a part of this school community. I am thrilled to be here, to work beside you, and to get to know each of you better.

Each time I have walked the halls, sat in classrooms, or engaged in conversations with our dedicated staff and students, I’ve felt an overwhelming sense of pride and gratitude.  I’ve come to quickly recognize the heartbeat of Waverly Schools-it’s a rhythm created by shared ambition, mutual respect, community engagement, and an unwavering commitment to a tradition of excellence.

Our district team has accomplished so much in such a short time. We have implemented new curriculum and assessments so we can continue to monitor student growth.  We have added 3 additional School Improvement Days to begin the Postsecondary and Career Expectations (PACE) frameworks.  Our district has recently received a Commendable Designation from the Illinois State Board of Education and this achievement allows us to continue to analyze our work.

We continue to work alongside our community for wonderful events such as Trunk or Treat, Veterans Day Programs and Cyberbullying Assemblies provided by the Attorney General’s Office.  We also held a Mental Health Fair during our Parent Teacher Conferences with over 20 vendors participating and providing resources and guidance for our community.

Together, as we move forward, we’ll weave new stories, face challenges, and celebrate triumphs. Our core remains unchanged; our students at the heart, and the community by our side.
