I want to thank everyone for making this a great year! Your work, contribution and tireless effort has made this a truly remarkable year for our students. Ours is often a thankless job and a lot of the small efforts go unnoticed. Everything you do goes a long way in changing the lives of families and students, it is critical work.
You deserve so much more than these mere weeks off but all I can offer is my heartfelt appreciation, well wishes for the summer and a true hope that you deeply relax and reinvigorate.
A LAST Goodbye
Though we are saddened that they are leaving, we are happy that our several of our Bulldogs are on the next leg of their journey. We will truly miss Ms Current, Ms Holmes and Ms MacDonald and wish them well in retirement. I won’t try to repeat what was eloquently said by Ms Horton on Thursday, she said it all. And the words of our honored guests will resonate with us for a good while.
Thank you all for the inspiration
Thanks for a great last meeting! We wanted to keep this short and sweet for everyone but also balance it with the importance of our sharing new direction and focuses developed by SIT. These are going to be the foundations on which we build future practices, procedures and plannings.
We will be exploring these regularly but our first deep dive into it will be August 10 and August 11.
BLOGGING OVER THE SUMMER
We are going to be shifting the focus of the blog over summer. We will be sharing resources on focus areas for next year, considerations for where we will be going. These will be online resources you can read a your leisure. I encourage you to take time read these resources and any other you may get from your social media searches
