By Mark Messman, Superintendent EV-W Schools Merry Christmas On behalf of the Eden Valley - Watkins School District faculty and staff, I want to thank you for working with us. Our schools have worked very hard to meet your expectations in providing a qual- ity education that is safe and nur- turing. We also take pride in our work and our profession, and con- tinually explore new ideas, con- cepts, and practices that will pre- pare your child for the future demands of this global economy. All of us at the Eden Valley- Watkins School District want to wish you a Merry Christmas. As I look back at the past five years of service to the district, I'm thankful for the passionate service from our dedicated and talented staff, the community partnerships we've forged, but mostly the opportunity to share in the developmental pro- cess of our future leaders. As we take a break and rejoice in the hol- iday season, we will also be look- ing forward to another successful year in 2017 working with you and your families. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
