Dear Varnett School Community:
I am Dr. White, your new Superintendent, and I would like to welcome you to the “Superintendent’s Monthly Message.”
Each month, I will have a message for our staff and school community to highlight a few happenings that reflect the core values of our district. Our mission is to provide a rigorous academic program that meets the needs of our diverse population.
The month of February has so many important events that we recognize: Black History, Valentine’s Day and a bit of Texas History with the rodeo and Go Texan Day. All of these events reflect the diversity and love for our communities, state and nation. I am excited about the way in which we will honor and celebrate our history through the various school activities and community parades.
As your Superintendent, it is my goal to spend the next several months listening to and learning from you to support our school vision – excellence in all things. By conducting listening and learning sessions with groups of employees, parents and community leaders, I will gain a greater understanding of how we are excellent and where there are opportunities for growth. In the coming weeks, you will receive an invitation to participate in one of these sessions to provide your feedback.
I have met so many wonderful students, staff and parents as I visit each school and am impressed with the positive things going on at each campus. From the exciting whole group lessons to watching our cheer team practice, we have a lot to be proud of here at Varnett.
I am excited about the opportunity of building upon the success of Varnett’s B rating and look forward to us working together to reach even higher. We value your participation in our activities and view you as partners in helping your children achieve the best education possible.
It is my goal to collaborate with you and my door is always open. I want to thank you for trusting us with your children and making Varnett your school of choice.
Dr. Nita White
