---------- Forwarded message ----------
Nothing in life is so complicated that it cannot be achieved by discipline and hard work
Obama Families and Friends 

The PTSA would like to remind everyone that we have a unique opportunity to provide input on the District's selection of a new superintendent.  This is our chance to make sure that our new superintendent fully supports our implementation of the IB.

Let's make sure the Obama Academy's IB voice is heard:
  • We want a superintendent who understands and appreciates the IB program and will recognize the IB program as a valuable part of District offerings.
  • We want a superintendent who will financially and philosophically support PPS's IB program.
  • We want Obama Academy to be a strong and vibrant asset of the PPS's school options.
  • We want a superintendent who supports Obama's IB curriculum that encourages students to think critically and consider both their local and international environment.
There are many ways to share your thoughts including:
Please help us to make sure the Obama Academy's IB voice is heard. We only have about 2 weeks left to make comments.  Community input will be collected until 1/28, when a job description will be sent nationwide. Follow the superintendent search progress on
