MAY 2021 MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT

Spring Flowers


Thank You           

The National PTA has designated May 3-7 as Teacher Appreciation Week, a recognition program begun in 1984.  Last year, we celebrated our teachers for blazing new trails in instructional design and developing standards-based lessons taught in both synchronous and asynchronous formats, and the celebration continues!  We can agree that the global pandemic of COVID-19 has altered many professions.  However, the impact on education has been especially significant.  Despite the many challenges faced over the past year, our teachers have continued to demonstrate how strong their skills are, how deep their commitment is, and how much they truly care for our students.  As in years’ past, it is our privilege to pause with gratitude and honor our amazing instructional staff for their professional dedication and service to children.  The oft-intangible synergy that occurs between student and teacher is one of life’s miracles…a miracle that cannot be underestimated.  Robert Frost spoke simply about the profound work of educators everywhere when he said, “I am not a teacher, but an awakener.”  For all that our teachers do to awaken students to the ongoing joys of lifelong learning, we extend heartfelt thanks and wish all a happy Teacher Appreciation Week!

On behalf of all in our district, we hope this month finds you and your families safe and well

Sincerely,

Dr. Marie Cirasella
