Why We Do What We Do

It would be an understatement to say it’s been an interesting past six weeks.  I was thinking about HOPE & JOY last night while watching the thermometer flirt with freezing and the rain came down.  I was hoping for a normal school day. Sometimes what can seem ordinary becomes extraordinary when it’s taken away.  I’m certainly not taking regular school days for granted!  It would seem quite extraordinary to have a few of them in a row!!!!

This week’s HOPE & JOY is all about appreciation for our hardworking maintenance, operations, grounds, and custodial crews.  With the amount of snow and ice that fell, they’ve been hard at work moving it all, trying to get our facilities ready and safe for school.  I heard stories of some working up to 16 hours shoveling!  We appreciate everything they do to ensure our students can learn!

Here’s to getting back into the routine of our wonderful work and the HOPE & JOY those students of ours bring to our lives each day!
