Last Student Day Will Be Friday June 15th

This will be a half-day for all students

Dear ANWSD Community,

It is
with mixed emotions that I notify you of my intention not to return to serve in my capacity as the Superintendent of Schools in the ANWSD for the 2018-19 school year. I have been offered an opportunity to move overseas and work in an American school. This has been a life long dream of my mine and an opportunity that I cannot over look. The Universal American School in Kuwait has been in existence for over 40 years and I will be the first female Superintendent of Schools to serve that community.

I have truly been honored to serve the students, staff and communities in the ANWSD over the past 4 years. We have come a long way over this period and I wish you all the best as you continue to tackle the myriad of challenges that will come your way. I want you to know that I will always remember our remarkable students and will remember the incredible supportive parent community. I wish you all the best and will also be looking for ways in which my new student body can connect with our incredible students in ANWSD.

Thank you for your partnership, support and commitment to our schools. I will miss you all!
