November 15- Chris Hallam 16- Jena Spinner

30- Andrea Irizarry

Grateful for you!

Anyone else feeling a little tired? I was thinking this weekend I can't believe its November and its the time of year when we really feel the hard work that has been happening since August. As I was reflecting on the craziness of last week and how by Friday I was feeling super defeated and overwhelmed, I was so glad the weekend was here.

Then I realized its November and my favorite time of year! I found myself thinking about how blessed I am; I noticed myself feeling encouraged and a new set of energy to enjoy the fun of these next couple months.

We all have a demanding job. The expectations on each and every one of us is a huge responsibility and there's no work in the world that compares to that in a school. We all have choices about where we work, the relationships we build with the people at work, the impact we choose to make on kids, families, each other and so much more.

As we enter this time of year I am thankful for each of you, the amazing things I get the benefit of seeing happen every day by the most dedicated group of people out there and most of all that together we are a team like no other. As we push through these next couple weeks I hope you find yourself feeling the same way when you see a colleague, friend, kiddo, you can smile and say I could be anywhere doing this job but I get to do it here with the most thoughtful and caring people and for that I am thankful.
