From the Superintendent: 
End-of-the-School-Year Message

Dear SRCS Community,

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to serve you, our students and families and the entire community this year.  On this last day of school, the anticipation and excitement of our summer break was certainly felt on our campuses. We have had an incredible school year. Thank you to the remarkable work of our students, teachers, classified staff, administrators, families and community partners.

Over the past year, I have witnessed our students' remarkable growth, resiliency and accomplishments. Their achievements truly humble me, and it is with utmost gratitude that I extend my deepest appreciation to our exceptional educators and staff members. Their tireless commitment and unwavering passion for teaching have positively influenced the lives of numerous students, leaving an indelible mark on their futures. Personally, I am grateful to have been welcomed to SRCS - it’s been a wonderful first year here!

Have a safe, fun and relaxing summer!
