What a year it’s been!
With the end of 2021, now is the perfect time to look back on lessons learned and progress made and to anticipate what is to come. That’s right, many of us are still dealing with 2020, and yet we will soon start writing 2022 at the top of our papers.
Whenever I take a moment to process the year and the time well spent, I can’t help but admire our children. As a father, I am amazed at what my children accomplish each year and how they are growing not only academically, but also socially and emotionally. Despite my desire that they stay small forever, I am honored to see them become leaders who will one day change the world.
When I was a teacher and principal, I was amazed at the steps children take every day to improve themselves and how far they could go in a short space of time. It was a privilege to see so many children succeed.
And now Superintendent, I am in awe of the growth that we are capable of together. Every member of our staff and student body has had a chance to grow this year, and I am grateful to every community member and partner who has played a role in this process.

Update from Superintendent Bexley:Students and staff take on the challenge of “being a champion”
Our students embraced learning with passion and enthusiasm. Many have participated in new and exciting adventures in our community, including taking their apprenticeship to the city hall route and participating in community forums and leadership conferences. Our students took pride of place on our stages and scored winning points in their sports competitions.
And our staff have explored new teaching methods, engaged in meaningful professional development, and supported our students, encouraging them in classrooms, boardrooms, stages, fields, and courts. .
What an exciting year this has been. I am so grateful to be a part of this journey with the students, staff, families and community partners of Bexley. As we contemplate what 2022 has in store, I have no doubts that we will continue to represent what it means to always moving forward.
