Reflect and Be Grateful

We have all faced many challenges over the past few months. March 13 feels far away and yet time feels like it is moving slowly. I want to take this opportunity to pause, reflect and be grateful. I am certain there are things we can learn from this and will look to do so as we plan and prepare for next year. What we do know is that we responded as best we could with where we were and what we had. Everyone faced challenges and limitations along the way and what we tried to do was be mindful of just that. The health, safety and welfare of our students, staff and families has been and always will be the priority. If we can take care of each other we can learn. Moving forward, it is my goal to learn from all of this and make it better for everyone. I am grateful for the support and hard work from everyone! So in these last few weeks let's be kind, finish strong, know that we are doing our best and continue to work together.


Look for our faces and smiles weekly on the news journal. We are kicking-off Mondays with an inspirational video and ending Fridays with waves and shout-outs.


I sincerely hope that you are keeping safe and healthy and taking care of one another- this is the most important thing we can do.


Wishing you a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.


Peace and love to all,


Dr. M.
