Dear Friends of Champaign Unit 4 School District: 

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for your partnership over the past year. It truly takes an entire community to fulfill our promise of providing a high quality education to all children in our community. 
 This is my favorite time of year because it provides the opportunity for us to reflect on what we have accomplished together. It also allows us to be intentional about the goals we will set for the future. As part of this reflection, I wanted to ensure that you were aware of some truly incredible programs and accomplishments of our students and faculty.
