Dear Showcase School,

Congratulations on being selected as a 2015-2016 Microsoft Showcase School! We are very proud of your achievements and look forward to working with you throughout the year, and beyond.

You have been selected as a Showcase School because you are a premier school with a strong vision for change and have successfully implemented Microsoft technology, and can share pointed stories about the outcomes of pursuing improvement agendas. You have created a whole-school innovative learning environment enabled by technology where students participate in their own learning and achievements to make learning more exciting.

I am thrilled to have you on board! You are among the top school leaders from around the world. You have proven that your school is the best of the best: validated by education leaders and government as being exceptional in creating and leading transformational learning environments, as well as through innovation and rethinking teaching, learning, and assessment in order to drive deep 21st century competencies. We are excited for you to share your knowledge by hosting tours at your school, speaking, and conducting workshops. Additionally, we are looking to you and your staff to blog and be active on social media, promoting inspiring learning powered by Microsoft technologies. Microsoft will share your stories of leadership and innovation, provide opportunities for collaboration with other leaders and feature you during events and workshops.

Finally, the Showcase Schools program is led by Mark Sparvell and your local Microsoft in Education country manager. Both of them will continue to work closely with you throughout this engagement.

Welcome to the program!
