Dear Editor,

One of the most exciting moments of the year for an educator is the beginning of a new school year. The 2009-2010 academic year is within reach, and we are ready. The School of Discovery Genesis Center will open its doors for students on Monday, August 10, 2009. The school’s primary goal for this year is to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) on state mandated student assessments.

Many of school’s education professors have attended summer workshops/conferences to improve their knowledge and skills.
