Message from our Superintendent
Kayenta Unified School District Parents/Guardians,
It is my honor and privilege to welcome you and your child(ren) to a new school year. I am confident that this will be a great school year! I had the opportunity to visit nearly every classroom across our campus on the first day of school and observed wonderful things in classrooms. I saw teachers and students greeting one another, friends catching up on all of the things that happened during the summer, teachers sharing classroom routines and expectations, and the beginning work of developing classroom social contracts. I strongly encourage you to ask your child about school each day and to continue challenging them to do all they can to reach their potential.
As we start the new year, it is important that we commit to and focus on strengthening the partnership between school and home. It is only with the collaboration and support of school and parents that together we can achieve at the level we want for our students and community. I encourage parents to take an active role in their child’s learning and for you to connect with your child’s teacher to discuss the learning needs of your child. I also encourage you to attend and participate in formal events throughout the school year like curriculum night, parent-teacher conferences, site council, parent nights, and parent meetings.
I encourage parents to sign up for ParentVUE if you do not already have access. It is accessible by an internet browser or app depending on what works best for you. ParentVUE provides access to your child’s academic progress and attendance. Please contact the office at your child’s school to learn more.
My greatest wish as an educator is that each of our students will: learn and grow to their potential both academically and socially; identify and follow their passion; and work toward being able to reach their dreams. As a district, we want our students to live their passion every day.
Have a wonderful school year.
Dr. Bryce Anderson
