Welcome to Aitkin Public Schools by Charles Rick
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Aitkin Public Schools. We strive to work toward the school mission statement to “empower students to be life-long learners and citizens by maximizing community, parent, and staff involvement while developing high expectations and achievement in a safe learning environment.”
Being new to the district, I will be learning too! I plan to learn more about the what the school has to offer students. One thing I encourage people to do is visit the school website to learn about what we have to offer students, staff, and community. There is a wealth of information on curriculum programs and school activities, community education programs, and information on school board meetings. You will also find a staff directory.
We are proud of the opportunities offered to students and the community toward their development as life-long learners. I encourage people to visit the schools and see the facility improvements at the high school made over the summer. The improvements to the high school will enrich the learning environment for all students.
The Aitkin Public Schools is committed to providing all students an excellent educational experience which involves support from students, parents, school staff, school board members, and the community.
We are excited to back in business for the 2018-2019 school year. I look forward to serving the school district and encourage people to contact me with any questions. Feel free to contact me by email (email@example.com) or call 218-927-7106. If I’m available, I’d be happy to speak with you otherwise Mary would be happy to set up an appointment.
