The holidays give us an opportunity to pause our busy lives and reflect on our proud accomplishments. The season offers me a chance to say “thank you” to the entire community for all of the support that you provide to our students, our families, and our staff.
In these most difficult and challenging times, we see dedicated and tireless individuals going above and beyond to make sure that great things happen in our District 2. They do make a difference, and the children, in their own individual ways, benefit from those efforts.
I am thankful for our students who come to school every day ready to learn – they give us all a daily reminder of what is important and why we are here.
Most importantly, I am thankful for the parents that have kept the faith in us. They continue to share their most valuable possession with us and—in most cases—work hard and advocate to be a partner in their children’s education, safety and well-being. For this, I am ever so thankful.
I hope you all have a joyous and special holiday season with plenty of time to relax and enjoy family and friendships. Safe travels and warm tidings to each and every one of you!
