Superintendent's Message

Hewins
February/March 2016
01/28/2016
I find my seat among the crowd as the lights dim, the murmuring stops, and the curtain rises. Fresh young faces in full voice belt out a tune of which we are all familiar. Our smiles broaden, our feet tap, and we quietly hum along, transported by the music to parts of our minds we often don’t visit as frequently as we would like. Yes, we are at a school concert. One, of many, at all levels that I have the privilege of attending each year. Or it could be a dramatic play or musical comedy or an instrumental jazz performance. The accomplished students of Franklin Pierce Schools continue to thrive and excel in the performing arts. Our efforts to sustain these programs, even during the Great Recession, have remained successful. With the incredible ability of our students to demonstrate their ever-increasing skills related to the performing arts, I sometimes cringe seeing the high quality of a student performer relegated to the likes of a stage in a cafeteria or gymnasium. For almost three decades, I have attended such performances here in our district and have dreamed of a time when we, as a supportive community, would be able to honor our childrens’ incredible talent with a performing arts facility worthy of their efforts. While the time is never exactly right for such an investment, we may be approaching a great opportunity to take on such a project that would have a significant multiplier effect on the culture of our wonderful community.
