Important Message from Superintendent Kindle
As we take a moment to self-reflect on some of the issues that all of us have been challenged to navigate through over the past several months and the past several days, we want to you to know we support our school community and are thinking of our students and families daily. Whether it be the unprecedented times created by this most recent and current health crisis or the historical references and acts of racism; the value of working with each other, students, and families to honor, accept, and recognize our diversity has never been greater. Please know now more than ever that Carman-Ainsworth Community Schools will continue to stand together, listen, empathize, and reflect on what we can do by our actions to be a part of the change that often is only realized after or during reflection of difficult times.
We continuously self-reflect on some of the beliefs that are clearly articulated in our district Vision and Mission Statement:
We believe that our students:
- Have unlimited potential.
- Have a right to be safe and to be respected.
- Will treat others as they would want to be treated.
- Will embrace diversity.
As a school district it is important that we all model these beliefs on a daily basis to ensure that they are realized and come to fruition as it relates to our goal of positively impacting each student. As we close out the 2019-2020 school year, we want to communicate to our families that even though times are extremely difficult at the moment, we are here for you, we believe in you, we will continue to do the best of our ability to ensure that Carman-Ainsworth is a safe place to learn, we will respect our students for who they are and the people we know they wish to become, we will treat all persons in our school community with dignity and respect, and we will continue to embrace diversity through our actions.
Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay CA Strong.
Eddie Kindle, Ed.S.
Superintendent of Schools
