    Dear Students and Parents/Legal Guardians,

    I hope this letter finds you all in good health and high spirits. It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I reach out to you as I embark on a new journey at Lockport High School West in the alternative high school setting. I am honored to have been entrusted with this responsibility by Superintendent Calvin, and I am genuinely excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for our students.

    First and foremost, I would like to express my sincere gratitude for the warm welcome I have received from the school community since my arrival. The positive energy, dedication, and commitment to education that I have witnessed thus far have reinforced my belief that Lockport High School West is an exceptional learning environment.

    As we step into the alternative high school setting, I want to assure you that my primary goal is to create a supportive, inclusive, and engaging educational experience for all students. I firmly believe that every student has unique talents, strengths, and aspirations, and it is my mission to help them discover and harness their full potential.

    In our alternative high school, we will foster an environment that embraces diversity, celebrates individuality, and promotes personal growth. Our curriculum will be tailored to meet the needs of our students, combining academic rigor with practical applications to enhance their learning experience. We will strive to provide a well-rounded education that prepares our students for the challenges and opportunities they will encounter beyond high school.

    Moreover, I am committed to ensuring open lines of communication between the school, students, and parents/legal guardians. I encourage you to reach out to me or any member of our dedicated faculty and staff should you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions. Together, we can work as a team to provide the best possible education and support for our students.

    As we embark on this exciting journey, I am confident that by working together, we will make a positive difference in the lives of our students. I look forward to building strong relationships with each of you, fostering a culture of mutual respect and collaboration. Let us embrace this opportunity to create an environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

    Thank you for your trust and support. I am genuinely excited about the road ahead and the potential we have to inspire and empower our students at Lockport High School West. Together, we will make a lasting impact.

    Warm regards,

    Dr. Bernadette L. Smith
