    Yesterday, for the third time in two months, a gun was fired just outside a 皇家华人 Public Schools campus. In two of those instances, PPS students have been injured. And across the city, during this same time period, far too many 皇家华人ers have been victims of our region’s escalating gun violence.

    As a lifelong educator, I see my primary responsibility as ensuring the safety and well-being of the children and youth under our care, as well as their teaching and learning. I am grateful for the commitment and service of our educators and support staff who everyday dedicate themselves to accomplishing these goals.
