Dear Penngrove Families,

This week, I just want to acknowledge all of your efforts and hard work to make Distance Learning a success for your students. Honestly, I'm beyond impressed. On behalf of Team Penn, thank you for being an extension of us, and for being so far out of your comfort zone that you sometimes probably can't find your way back!

I was sharing with the staff that even for the most experienced teacher, we all feel totally new at this. Teaching virtually is likely not anything that any of us ever thought we'd be doing. Although there are tons of wins and magical moments along the way, we all feel like brand new educators. Vulnerable. Excited. Scared. Chaotic. Happy. Unsure. Nervous. Emotional. Proud. Sound familiar? Okay, good.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking deep breaths, for being gentle with yourself when needed, for holding your children to high expectations, for setting boundaries, for following through and for knowing when your family needs a break.

We believe in you. You give us hope.

From my heart to yours,


Weekly Message From Mrs. Fadeji
