"Commitment to Excellence"       

Welcome to Blissfield Community Schools


I am a new employee in Blissfield Community Schools but in the over 45 years I have lived in Lenawee County I have formed many friendships with individuals in the Blissfield community.  As a longtime county educator I am well aware of the fine reputation of this school district. However, it was not until recently when I was employed as the interim superintendent and provided with a chance to see the district first-hand that I was able to confirm my long time beliefs about the district and community.


The following is an initial list of my observations:

·         Blissfield is a marvelous community with many caring individuals 

·         The school system is in sound financial shape

·         The curriculum being provided to the students is top notch

·         Employees (teachers, custodians, secretaries, bus drivers, food service, paraprofessionals, administrators, and others) TRULY care about the students and the school system

·         Community members are willing to give of themselves (time and/or money) to support the students

·         Students treat adults and peers in a respectful manner

·         The District is noted and respect for the top notch music, band and extra-curricular programs

·         Technology plays a prominent role in the teaching and learning process – thus preparing students for the world to which they will soon be exposed


I encourage parents and community members to be involved in the many positive things taking place on a daily basis by visiting our school buildings and our website.


Finally, I am eager to meet as many individuals as possible so when you see me please feel free to introduce yourself.


Educationally yours,



David P. Pray
