Dr. Kurt Steinhaus and kids at Mountain Elementary

Greetings from the Superintendent’s Desk!

It is hard to believe that summer break is quickly approaching.    Since time is our most valuable resource, we plan to make every minute count until the last day of the 2018-19 school year.  The next several weeks will be filled with performances, field trips, athletic events, exams, prom and graduations. Let’s remember to enjoy each note, each dance, and each moment that makes this time special.

May 6 is designated Teacher Appreciation Day, but here at LAPS we appreciate and celebrate our staff every day. Whether in the classroom, behind the wheel of the bus, or purchasing materials, to name a few, all LAPS employees are here to ensure that our students thrive.

LAPS is already looking ahead to the 2019-2020 school year, developing budgets with input from the community, hiring for open positions, reviewing curriculum for all grade levels, and finalizing professional development opportunities for staff.  As we move forward in this process, we are reminded of our huge goal: every child will discover and develop their unique strengths and thrive at the next level.

Dr. Kurt Steinhaus
