August 2018-Weekly Newsletter, Vol 27


Big picture

Dear Teachers and Staff,

We hope this letter finds you well rested and excited to be back working with children. This time of year brings an energy and enthusiasm for learning and a reminder of the important life work that we have chosen.

First off, we want to recognize all employees for the enthusiasm and caring spirit that is brought to the District, day-after-day, year-after-year. You bring it to one another, and you bring it to our learners, whether they are in the lunchroom, the hallways, or in the classroom. We truly believe that the energy our students have for learning is a reflection of the enthusiasm each of you exhibits daily. The enthusiasm, conversations, and activities exemplify the excellence of this District and our community.

We have a great staff who continues to be dedicated to teaching every learner of every age. The curriculum work that was done with Jan Hoegh last week and your commitment to excellence is recognized and appreciated.

That being said, we also want to acknowledge the extra time and effort put forth by all employees as we embark upon another school year. May this school year bring each of us much joy and fulfillment.
