Thoughts for the Week

Last week, then some R&R.

Thank you for all your efforts to prepare for the Academic Review. It went well, and I was proud of the work you had done. The process was an involved one, and I got some good feedback to share. I'll get the final report from the State, and we will talk more about the process on Thursday.

As we head towards the break, please remember that our students count on you each and every day in ways that we do and don't understand completely. They will miss you. We have had a great start to the year, and we'll definitely look to build on this success when the students return!

Have a great week,
