A Note from Superintendent Scallon


Dear Weld RE-4 Families, I was reminded by the beautiful rain last night that we have so much to be thankful for. As I begin my first official day as Superintendent, I am thankful for the opportunity to work in a district that values excellence and student achievement--always putting our most precious asset, our children, first.
My husband Ryan and I moved from North Dakota in 1999 and were fortunate enough to have raised our family here. Our 37th wedding anniversary is this fall, and we look forward to celebrating with our children, their spouses, and our five grandchildren. So much to be thankful for.
The sounds of summer are all around us: children playing in the parks, swimming in the lakes, and making memories with their friends and family. I look forward to meeting each of you; hopefully our paths will cross at community events this summer. There are several upcoming community conversations with myself and our Board of Education.
In addition to community conversations, this past month I conducted listening tours at all of our schools, meeting with principals and staff members. As a servant leader, you can expect that I will always listen and make decisions beneficial to our students, staff, and families. Over the past three decades in education, students have and always will be my number one priority. Transparency, working together, and community connection are essential as we move forward, enabling and empowering our students to thrive in our classrooms and beyond.
Again, we have so much to be thankful for, especially this amazing community.
Thank you for your support of our students and our schools.
With Gratitude,
Michelle Scallon
