From the Superintendent's Desk
Dear Staff, Students, Parents, and Community Members:
I would like to take this opportunity to share with you how honored and excited I am to have been selected as Superintendent for Thief River Falls Public Schools. I can assure you that I understand and appreciate this wonderful opportunity as well as the enormous responsibility that goes with the job. I am humbled and extremely grateful to the School Board members for placing their faith and confidence in me and I intend to work in partnership with them in guiding the district forward.
As I begin my 29th year in education, I have had the opportunity to experience many diverse roles. I believe these experiences have prepared me to meet your high expectations and have provided me with a solid foundation to assist in delivering the outstanding educational experience our students deserve. I have come to appreciate the hard work of educators and support staff, and know that we all play an important role in educating our children.
Student achievement will continue to be a high priority in the district. Developing strong and lasting relationships will be the cornerstone for achieving this goal. Engaging and challenging our students in order to prepare them to be college or career ready is extremely important as we prepare them to be the productive citizens we know they can and will be.
I look forward to the work we will be doing together. Excellence will continue to be our standard and I can’t wait to get started. I am extremely proud to say that I am now a “Prowler!”
Bradley D. Bergstrom
Superintendent of Schools
