INSIDE PERSPECTIVES: 
“I am absolutely convinced that student performance is about expectations - those we have for our students and equally as important, those we have for ourselves.” ~ Terry Myers, CMS Superintendent. ~~ "We are the proud 6th graders who were having so much fun throughtout the past several weeks, we didn't even realize we had learned SO much!" ~ Nicolas, 6th grader at Ranchvale Elementary. ~~ "Be the one that makes your family, your school, and your community proud." ~ Wayne Marshall, CHS Principal. ~~ "Service is the rent we pay for being. It is the very purpose of life and not something you do in your spare time." ~ Marian Wright Edelman. ~~ On the last day of school at La Casita Elementary, having just distributed student summer reading logs, Principal Dr. Martinez asked students what their summer plans were; 1st grader, Angel, shouted, "LEER!" ["Read!" in English]. ~~ "A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops." ~ Henry B. Adams. ~~ "Remember who you are and where you come from; you will always be a Wildcat. Don't let the world decide who you will be; you decide who you will be." ~ Wayne Marshall, CHS Principal. ~~ "Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten." ~ B.F. Skinner  ~~ "CHS graduation was great! Our senior speakers gave some of the top speeches I've heard!" ~ Pam Cornelison, CHS Head Counselor. ~~ "The greatest sign of success for a teacher…is to be able to say, 'The children are now working as if I did not exist.'" ~ Maria Montessori. ~~ "Teaching isn't the 3 months you get out of it, it is the 9 months you put into it!" ~ Sylvia Martinez, Ph.D., Principal, La Casita Elementary. ~~ "It must be remembered that the purpose of education is not to fill the minds of students with facts…it is to teach them to think." ~ Robert Hutchins. ~~ "Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilized by education." ~ Charlotte Bronte. ~~ In an aside to a new student: "Don't ever say anything is too hard in here; Mrs. Hedeman (Zia Elementary gifted teacher) will say we can DO hard things!" ~ Jocelyn, 3rd grader.
