Inspire Excellence in Education [November 16, 2015]

I am thankful for YOU!

As we enter this busy season, our days are filled with deadlines, grades, parent phone calls, meetings, holiday events, traveling, and etc. Sometimes we forget the most important thing...simply be still and be thankful for what we have.

I am very thankful for each one of you, and sometimes I don't say it enough. Here is a list of reasons:

  • Your passion for kids even when they act unkind
  • Your effort and encouragement in every letter they write, every problem they solve, and every picture they draw.
  • You accept them just the way they are.
  • You work so hard to reach each one of them and always finding new ways to connect with them.
  • YOU are the spirit Dixie, YOU are the culture of Dixie, and YOU are the reason I am grateful.

This and That

  • Second grade has earned one week jeans pass because they have 100% participation in Sunshine Club! Thank you!
  • Before you leave for Thanksgiving, please complete the following:
  1. Take your food items home from the lounge refrigerator.
  2. Update or tidy up bulletin board (Turkeys will need to go home)
  3. Let your team know how much you appreciate them :-)
