Message from Superintendent Sandra "Sam" Himmel


I want to take this opportunity to welcome you back as we begin the 2013-2014 school year. I can’t wait until all of you return from the summer and we officially start the year! Make sure you’re well rested and eager to hit the ground running as we continue to provide opportunities and make the connections necessary for high achievement in the coming year and success in the future.

While we have made progress in many areas and have received state recognition, there is still much work to be done to ensure all of our students are successful in whatever they choose to do upon graduation. Parents, please know that I deeply appreciate and value the role you play in your child’s education. I urge you to stay involved each year of his/her school career to ensure the greatest possible success possible.

I want you to know how honored and excited I am to continue to serve each of you as your Superintendent of Schools. No matter where I go and no matter whom I meet across the state, I always take time to share the wonderful things that are happening in our schools with the support of our entire community. Thank you for allowing me to serve you in this role.

As always, I look forward to seeing all of our returning school family as well as meeting each of you who are just beginning your partnership with us. Don’t hesitate to stop me as you see me at school events or in the community or drop me a line to let me know your thoughts. Together, we can make sure that great things are going to continue to happen within our Citrus County Schools … Where Learning is the Expectation and Caring is a Commitment!

Sandra “Sam” Himmel
Superintendent of Schools
