THIS WEEK IN HORIZON (May 11 - 15, 2015)
Kevin C. Garinger – Director of Education

I trust everyone had a relaxing long weekend. As we begin the countdown, we recognize there is much left to do with the remainder of time in the 2014/15 school year. We know our students are likely counting down the days to the end of the year. At this time of the year, I think of our graduates anticipating the completion of an era of high school and parental and teacher expectations. They will soon be entering the exciting and, at the same time, eye-opening world of adulthood. While there are and will be graduation ceremonies in anticipation of that culmination of learning, the reality for all our grade 12s will hit the final day of classes, when that last exam is completed and the first day of the rest of their lives begins. As their parents worry about how well prepared they are, we as a system reflect on what we have done to prepare them for the world they are about to enter. As we all wind down our year, we can look to those graduates as products of our collective work. Some of you loved them first when they began their elementary education, others this last year or years and still others somewhere in between, but the key is that we have all added in some way to the people they have become. Have we done our work? Have we prepared this next generation? As I reflect on these questions systemically, I can’t help but believe that the work we have begun in literacy will prepare our kids for the world that may not even exist yet. What greater gift can we give than to prepare them for the literacy they need whether that be in relation to a trade or a profession, in post-secondary education, in a field of expertise or literacy in a technology driven world. I am excited about entering into this venture together because every graduate is a product of all of us. Collaborative effort is truly what we are about in Horizon.
