Wednesday, August 17th, 2016. The calm before the storm.

Tomorrow morning some 2,300 or so children will walk through our doors. Give or take 180 of them will be in kindergarten. Another 180 or so seniors. Between K and Senior year thirteen years total of hopes and dreams. Aspirations and accomplishments. Struggles, successes, wins and losses. Emotions so high they could fly and so low they cry.

You stand before them as role model. Mentor. Teacher. Coach. Secretary. Custodian and Bus Driver. Cook and Principal. They look to you for guidance and wisdom they don't know they need. A role model for what a better tomorrow looks like, maybe one they can't even imagine yet.

Love them. Push them. Instruct them. Guide them and counsel them. Teach them and help them learn. Help them to become the sum total of their positive experiences in school. Show them with hard work comes good fortune. Show them that they can pave their own way in the world. Show them hope and a tomorrow worth working for.

Thank you for being you. Thank you for working for Mexico Public Schools. No matter your role you are important in Making Minds Stronger. Important as a Learner Creating Learners. Important in Teaching, Caring, Learning. What you do matters.

The future arrives tomorrow.

Have an awesome year!
