November Principal Newsletter

From Mrs. Kozel

🧑 🧑 🧑

Hello Will Rogers Families,

We are moving into the fall and winter months, which can bring a mixture of the best and worst of times for many people. Being mindful of this, helps us to show each other grace and kindness.

I am grateful for:

  • Students who have breakthroughs with academics or behavior, after working so hard to get there
  • Staff members who persevere though the hard days and come back with a smile on their face, ready for a new challenge
  • Families who are willing to work as a team with our staff to achieve the same goal - helping their student be as successful as possible.

We're building connections everyday and working hard to help our students become productive members of their communities.

We have a lot to be thankful for this month. Check out the events and announcements below.
