A Moment of Reflection and Gratitude

Wow, we made it all the way through our first semester of the school year! As we prepare for winter break, I wanted to share with you my reflections on our school community. This fall, we welcomed new students and their families, new support staff members, new classroom teachers, and a new leadership team. We welcomed back a committed student body and staff community. Some of our students have been with us since their very first day of preschool, and remain committed to Patrick Henry even as they enter their final year of elementary! Some of our teachers and staff members began their careers at Patrick Henry, and they remain here for their fifteenth year! Whether brand new or a true veteran, our Patrick Henry school community is one of welcome and joy. Thank you for working so hard this semester to keep that spirit alive and well, and for welcoming all of us "newbies" into the fold. I am thankful for the opportunity to lead this excellent team, and to serve this smart, fun, engaging group of students and families.

To our staff members, thank you for all of your hard work this semester, and enjoy your time off - you have earned it! To our community partners, thank you for your contributions of time, money, and effort - you have impacted our staff and students in ways that we cannot fully articulate! To our families, thank you for your constant support of your child's education - you have the most important role in your child's life, and we are so thankful for the impact you have on them every day! To our students, thank you for working so hard to challenge yourselves both academically and personally - we know how much you can achieve when you work hard in school, and we also know how much you have grown socially and emotionally in the process!

To all of our Patrick Henry school community, I say thank you, and I wish you a wonderful winter break. Return in January feeling refreshed and ready for the new year!
