Dear Parent and Community members,
Life is a series of transitions and, as our community and its residents embark on
new challenges and opportunities for growth, so does the St. Anthony-New Brighton
School District. As our children transition into preschool at St. Anthony Community Services,
kindergarten at Wilshire Park, sixth grade at St. Anthony Middle School, or 9th grade
at St. Anthony Village High School, each year signifies growth and new learning.
For parents in our community, as our children grow each day, our parenting is
challenged and we adjust to best meet their needs. As our students, especially St.
Anthony Village High School’s Class of 2018, transition to the next phase of their
educational career, they are ready. As the adults in their lives, we have the privilege
of continuing to love and support our children as they grow and learn.
In the St. Anthony-New Brighton School District, we are committed to the success of
all learners. Through that commitment, we continue to examine our practices to
ensure we are engaging, inspiring, challenging and supporting each learner
through innovation and collaboration. We have a responsibility to welcome all
children when they arrive to school each day. We also have a responsibility to
ensure all children feel safe at school. We know that learning is most likely to
happen only when children feel safe. We continue to ensure our schools are
safe places for all children.
As young families move into our community, Wilshire Park is transitioning into a larger elementary school. Thanks to our voters, who supported the September 2017 referendum by a 2 to 1 margin, construction is underway at Wilshire Park Elementary School. The new classrooms will be ready to welcome our children when they arrive on the first day of
school in September 2018. Finally, the St. Anthony-New Brighton School District is transitioning leadership. Superintendent Laney retired on June 30, 2018, after serving six years in our school district and contributing 39 years to the field of education. Thank you Mr. Laney for leading our schools, mentoring our staff and children, and insisting that we continue to
pursue excellence in our small, caring environment. To our community, thank you for your continued support and I look forward to our partnership.
Dr. Renee Corneille, Superintendent
