Welcome Back!

First Week @ MGES

I hope you have all had a relaxing and wonderful summer! It's so important to take time for yourself and your family to rejuvenate and actually feel human. So, I hope you were able to do both!


Some of you may be anxious about rolling into this new year, and I understand. Change can be scary, but the one thing we can control is the opportunities we offer our students. Everything we do is for them.


I want to extend a very special welcome to those new to MGES. Please go out of your way to help our new people feel at home. We will do a formal introduction of these folks Wednesday morning.


Between now and Thursday, find a quote that speaks to you or moves you in some way. It can be related to school, home, or family. Completely up to you. Bring a hard copy of the quote on Thursday and be prepared to share why you selected it. Please make sure your name and reason are written on the quote. I want to keep them.


I've been studying your data and it is clear that the bar you've set for continuous improvement is high. I look forward to a year of learning how to get even better, sharing our successes with the community, shining a brighter light on our students, and continuing the tradition of excellence you all have worked so hard to achieve.


See you soon,

Jacob
