"Alone we can do so little. Together, we can do so much."

District Gathering at Holiday Gardens

Thank you to all of the Culture Club members who made Saturday night happen. It was a lovely evening and a wonderful opportunity to connect with colleagues across the district. It was terrific to see so many familiar Winskill faces- thank you to all who came out. I'm not sure who ended up winning the Bead Challenge, but it was certainly a lot of fun to play! As for the "Mad Libs" game, well.... the less said the better! Except that there was a great deal of laughter - and that's always a terrific way to connect with others!
Who Will Be My Hero?

Our job is difficult, there is no doubt. But our kids are worth the very best we have to offer. I know that mine are- aren't yours? And if OURS are, they ALL are. Thank you for giving your best every day. Even more, after the days when you were not your best, thank you for coming back to try again.
