With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, I want to take this opportunity to express how grateful I feel to be part of such a special community of educators and change-makers.
This is the time of year when we pause from our busy lives, to reflect, to rest, and to gather together to give thanks. Despite the turbulence the pandemic continues to cast over our daily lives, I hope that you will join me in reflecting on what we have overcome and accomplished together.
I am grateful to be surrounded and supported by all of you.
I am also grateful that our Governor has granted us an extra vacation day on Friday. I hope you use your time away from work to rest, rejuvenate, watch football, take a walk in the beautiful fall weather, and enjoy heavy-carb meals and sweet treats with loved ones.
Thank you for all that you do, and have a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday weekend.
