Monthly message from our Superintendent

Mike Winters

Hello Saddle Mountain community. I am Dr. Mike Winters, your superintendent. I am honored to continue serving in this role, and could not be more excited to be here. I was immediately drawn to the strong family atmosphere in the district, and feel a strong connection to the vision of everyone learns every day and the mission of educating all students to become responsible, college and career-ready community members. Two words stick out to me in the vision and mission; they are everyone and all. A core belief of mine is that all children can learn and be successful. This belief is embodied by the district’s Kids at Hope philosophy that all children are capable of success, no exceptions.

We are excited to have our students back to kick off the 2023–2024 school year. I was able to visit each school on the first day of school, and saw lots of happy smiling faces. Those smiling faces included students, staff, and parents. Those smiling faces included those of returning students, staff, and parents, and those of new members of Saddle Mountain. We welcome new students, staff, and parents to our family.

The beginning of a new school year is an exciting time of year. We built a solid foundation last year, and we look forward to building on last year’s successes. As I begin my second year as superintendent, I’m looking forward to continuing and leading our journey of continuous improvement. I truly believe the 23–24 school year will be the best school year yet!

Thank you for your continued support. We’ll see you next month, right here on the Saddle Mountain Shout Out.
