Teacher Appreciation Week – May 6th through May 10th
This has been a “stressful” year when we consider increasing expectations, raising academic standards, and growing our collective capacity in the areas of standards and proficiency. Each day we get better…..Each day we get stronger…Each day our students benefit from our collective efforts. There are so many pieces of evidence that illustrate our collective growth and it is important we take time to celebrate the efforts of our staff. On behalf of the board of education and the administration, we would like to provide breakfast for you during Teacher Appreciation Week. On Wednesday May 8th, breakfast will be delivered to your respective buildings. We hope you enjoy our sincere thanks!
I enjoy watching teachers teach and how they tactically use their art to reach all students. This past Thursday I had the privilege of walking through E.N. Swett. Patience, expectations, and meeting the needs of each student were attributes skillfully displayed in each classroom. Rigorous learning targets, lessons aligned to standards, and clearly identified levels of performance are evident throughout my visits. Our school district is on the right path to increased student achievement.
Our Maintenance Department
These folks deserve more recognition and appreciation for their efforts and for their contributions to the experiences offered our students. Getting up at 3 a.m. to clear parking lots and place salt on walkways, preparing for athletic events, and responding promptly to our needs are just a few of the ways our folks contribute to a quality learning environment. I hope you will join me in thanking them for their wonderful work.
