EWRSD Weekly Update
November 18, 2022
Dear EWRSD Community,
As we approach the Thanksgiving season, it serves as an opportunity for us to reflect on those things that we appreciate and find ways to express gratitude. As superintendent of schools, I am deeply thankful for the skill and dedication of our talented educators and administrators, who continue to place the needs of students at the forefront of what they do each day. I also need to thank our Buildings and Grounds and Transportation Departments for maintaining clean and operational facilities, and safe and reliable transit to and from school. I would be remiss if I didn't express my admiration to our parents who continue to offer much needed and ongoing support. And lastly, I am grateful for our amazing students, who serve as a constant reminder of our purpose and mission as a school district.
Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.

In preparation for Thanksgiving, the Perry L. Drew Student Council hosted its annual food drive. The students collected non-perishable food items to be distributed to families in need in our community. The food will be donated to RISE, a local food pantry that will then distribute them as needed to members of our community.
