Principal's Message

Traditionally, Thanksgiving is a time of year in which the children are asked to pause and reflect upon things for which they are most grateful. This year, I witnessed, more than other years, that children are grateful for school, for their teachers and for their friends. After a year and a half of learning online and not being able to play with friends, those things that may have been taken for granted have become more precious.

As I talk with teachers and parents, I come to realize as adults, we too, are all grateful that we have been able to maintain somewhat normalcy this school year thus far. Teachers are beginning to feel that the children are into the groove of school. Parents share that they are most grateful that their living spaces are no longer classrooms. As the leader of this great school, I am very appreciative that our children come to school each day ready to learn and our teachers truly want to be here for the children.

I have always been grateful to be the leader of this community, but this year, I too realize the gift we have of one another. I am proud of the teaching staff and their commitment to the children. I am proud of our children, when life threw them many twists and turns, they have persevered and made the best of every situation. I am so grateful for families who support and appreciate our work. Yes, this year, more than any other year, we have much of which to be grateful.

However you spend the days of this Thanksgiving break, I hope they are restful and that you are surrounded by those you love most in this world.

Best regards,

Mary Rykowski
