Weekly Message #2-16

We will open the book.  Its pages are blank.  We are going to put words on them ourselves.  The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.  ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce


Happy New Year everyone.  I hope your holiday was restful and full of fun.  Please join me in welcoming all of our new staff members this week.


As in the quote above, I always think that the new year brings us fresh possibilities and opportunities.  At the same time, there will be challenges.  The ongoing teacher job action has brought additional stress and worry for all of you.  There appears to be no end in sight and the likelihood of escalation seems high.  Please know that the relationships that we have with each other are much more important than job action and contract negotiations.  The respect, support and caring nature of our staff will help us to navigate these difficult times.


I look forward to working with all of you in 2012 and know that we will accomplish many positive things with our students.  Welcome back.




As far as I know, there are no special events planned for this week – we’ll just take the time to settle in!  Have a great week.
