Wildcat Families,

I am honored to have been chosen by the Northwestern School District Board of Directors as your new superintendent.  I have been on the job since July 1st, and I am truly impressed with what I have seen so far.  Working with the administrative team, the school board, the faculty, the support staff, our custodial and cleaning staff, and the students has been an eye-opening, yet very rewarding, experience.

I have seen a tremendous amount of family involvement, pride from our teachers and students, and the willingness of our entire staff to go the extra yard simply because it is the right thing to do.  I feel extremely fortunate to be a member of the Wildcat team.

I welcome your comments and concerns, and look forward to continuing the great traditions which already exist, while hopefully bringing a new and fresh perspective in order to continue to make Northwestern a great place for our students and their families.

John Hansen, Superintendent
