For Each New Morning

For each new morning with its light, for rest and shelter of the night, for health and food, for love and friends, for everything Thy goodness sends.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hello, ESSM Parents!

As we enter this season of gratitude, I am honored to serve with you as we all seek to provide our students the best learning instructional experience ever! I am grateful for your support as demonstrated by your presence at our meetings, phone calls, emails--all of that...we welcome your engagement and look forward to even more of it in weeks to come.

We have wrapped up our Title I meetings, and now we can work on our site-based decision making team formation. Below (Rise 360) is a training that is required by all members and most specifically if you desire to hold an office. Please take a minute to peruse the training. We will talk more about this organization at our Parent Meeting on Thursday among other topics.

I hope that you will take every precaution to be safe during these very different times. As always, we are here if you need us. Together, we can!

With gratitude,
