Superintendent Weekly Update

from the desk of Kathy Amos

November 18, 2022

I am thankful for so many blessings: my family, my heavenly father, my work family, children, friends, the USA, freedom, health, our mountains….the list goes on. I want you to know that I am thankful for each of you and all that you do everyday for our students and our community. Safe travels next week as we celebrate this Thanksgiving with our family and friends.

I thank thee, friend, for the beautiful thought

That in words well chosen thou gavest to me,

Deep in the life of my soul it has wrought

With its own rare essence to ever imbue me,

To gleam like a star over devious ways,

To bloom like a flower on the drearest days­

Better such gift from thee to me

Than gold of the hills or pearls of the sea.

For the luster of jewels and gold may depart,

And they have in them no life of the giver,

But this gracious gift from thy heart to my heart

Shall witness to me of thy love forever;

Yea, it shall always abide with me

As a part of my immortality;

For a beautiful thought is a thing divine,

So I thank thee, oh, friend, for this gift of thine.

The purpose of this survey is to obtain input regarding the proposed K-12 Science Standards and to inform any additional revisions, which may include changes, clarifications, additions, deletions, or replacements to the draft standards.
