Dear BOUSD Community,
Welcome back to another exciting school year! I hope this letter finds you rejuvenated, inspired, and ready to embrace the 2023-24 school year. It is an honor to serve as your Superintendent, it gives me immense pleasure to extend my warmest greetings and share with you our collective vision for this academic year: to “elevate” our educational experiences and opportunities to new heights. We have carefully chosen this word to signify our collective dedication to reaching new heights in every aspect of our educational community. Elevate represents our ambition to soar beyond boundaries as we work tirelessly to provide the best possible opportunities for our students.
Here at BOUSD, we are committed to creating an environment where every student feels welcome within our schools, as they bring unique perspectives, talents, and backgrounds that enrich our community. Our staff ensures that each student feels valued, respected, and supported. I encourage you to set ambitious goals for your children and have them actively participate in all the opportunities that come their way, such as having them get involved in extracurricular activities, clubs, and community service projects. You can also assist by seeking out new challenges that will push their boundaries and help them grow as individuals. The path to success is often paved with hard work, dedication, and perseverance which emphasizes the importance of consistent and regular school attendance. By being present in the classroom, students open themselves up to a world of knowledge, engage in meaningful discussions, and build strong relationships with peers and teachers.
Let us embrace this school year with enthusiasm and determination. Together, we will enhance the educational experience and create an environment where diversity is celebrated, inclusivity is cherished, and everyone feels valued. I have every confidence that the 2023-24 school year will be one of transformation and triumphs for all.
We look forward to seeing all our amazing students back in the classroom on Monday, August 14.
Brinda C. Leon
