JOY and HOPE are intimately connected and are powerful gifts we can give our students, perhaps the most powerful! One of the very best parts of being involved in public education is the JOY and HOPE students give us each and every day! The past few years we’ve featured stories that highlight the HOPE and JOY in our district. Let me know if you have any story suggestions. Thanks for helping us share the HOPE & JOY each week!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. I sure appreciate the opportunity to connect with family and friends and enjoy the food! If your family is similar to mine, there is a lot of storytelling that goes on as we relive our favorite memories. Our stories capture what’s important to us, our values, and our priorities – usually with a lot of laughter and love.
We help our students develop their stories about school. Each experience they have is an opportunity for a positive narrative to be written about who they are and who they can become. We are a part of those experiences, placing responsibility on us to be thoughtful and intentional about how we create and support them. Every interaction has great potential. We have 17 days of school leading up to winter break. What story do we want to write for ourselves and the students we serve?
Have a great Monday & happy writing!
