Letter from the Superintendent

Trials & Celebrations


As I start this email, I can’t help but think of our neighbors and school family members that have been impacted by the recent storms and tornadoes in our area.  It has been heartbreaking to see the impact these storms have had on people’s lives and property.  While there have been numerous families impacted by these storms, one of our own Cardinal family members, high school math teacher Derek Steeve’s family, has been especially impacted.  Here is a recent news story from KETV covering the damage at their homestead from a tornado just a couple nights ago. In addition to this devastation, they are also dealing with the challenges that come from having a child that is battling health issues. Recently their 5-year-old daughter, Ava, was diagnosed with aplastic anemia. On Wednesday, May 22nd from 5-7 p.m. several staff members are organizing a spaghetti supper and silent auction in support of the Steeve family.  If you would like more information or are willing to make a donation, you can email one of the organizers, Shelly Bailey, at sbailey@treynorcardinals.org.


Despite these recent difficult times there is also much for our Treynor Nation to celebrate.  This week is teacher appreciation week and I want to take a moment and recognize those that make a difference in our students’ lives every day.  Students are at the center of our work and research is very clear that teachers are the group of educators that have the biggest impact on student learning and we are very blessed to have some of the very best at Treynor CSD. While the teachers are one of the most significant groups in a child's education we recognize that there are many other “educators” that play a significant role in helping students. Thinking of those that play a significant role in a student’s life, we can’t forget the impact that paraeducators, secretaries, kitchen staff, nurses, bus drivers, coaches, custodians, counselors, administrators, and so many more have. Every one of these “educators” plays a significant role in the lives of our students.  Moreover, we know their work makes a difference. Take a look at some of the 23-24 winter highlights and the results of everyone’s work in our students’ accomplishments. These highlights don’t happen without teachers and other “educators” doing great things with our students.


So, as we celebrate teacher appreciation week, and all the “educators” that play a role in our students’ success, please take a moment to say “thank you” to a Treynor educator.  In addition, please consider helping those around us that are experiencing extremely challenging times.  Our success as a school and community comes from working together and supporting each other.  We began this school year with the motto Excellence is Expected & Excellence is Achieved ~ TOGETHER, and we feel like we have lived up to that motto.


Thank you, Treynor Nation, for your support!
