July 2017

    To All Parents, Students, District Patrons and Visitors,
    Welcome to the 2017-18 school year! I am very excited and honored to be serving La Conner as your superintendent. 
    The middle of July is a great time to enjoy sunshine, family, friends, and community. Here in the school district, we are preparing for the start of school. Teachers are engaged in professional learning this summer. The maintenance department is busy working on many incredible projects on our campus. Kids are getting in shape for fall sports and many are participating in summer school.
    I have already begun meeting with individuals and groups to learn more about La Conner and the La Conner Schools. Everyone is consistent in sharing the many wonderful opportunities that exist for kids here, and also what a great place this is to live, work, and play. I invite you to contact me for an appointment to share with me your perspective on what's working and what could be strengthened. My email is wmeissner@lc.k12.wa.us, or you can contact the office staff at 466-3171 to set a time to meet.
    What can you expect from me? I'm here for kids. I want to ensure that La Conner Schools continue to be a nurturing, caring, high quality educational system for all kids. I want people who work here to love coming to work and feel like they are thriving personally and professionally. I want to be visible and accessible for students, staff, parents, and community. 
    My 25 years in public education have afforded me many incredible opportunities. I started out teaching math and English in the Federal Way School District in 1992. From there, I was assistant principal at Snohomish High School for 4 years, followed by 14 years in the Chimacum School District where was a principal, assessment director, athletic director, and facilitated a variety of professional learning opportunities for staff.
    I have been a member of Rotary for several years and recently joined La Conner's Rotary Club. I love the mission of the club: "Service Above Self".
    I look forward to meeting each of you and helping our students and staff open doors and fulfill dreams!
    Thank you for the warm welcome. I am so happy to be here!
    Dr. Whitney Meissner
